R&B singer Ashanti announced Saturday (Dec. 12) on Instagram that she tested positive for Covid-19, and so the Verzuz battle between her and Keyshia Cole has been postponed.
Hey y’all I can’t believe I’m saying this but I tested positive for COVID-19. I’m ok and not in any pain. I’m actually down to do the verzuz from my house… we’re trying to figure it all out!Ashanti
She later posted a video saying,
Never in a million years did I think I would get Covid.Ashanti
The two R&B singers were set to face off on Saturday night (Dec. 12) but Verzuz announced a short time later it is postponing the battle until January 9.
First time this has struck us so close to showtime. We apologize to our incredible audience! Get well soon, Ashanti!Verzuz
The showdown between Ashanti and Keyshia Cole is part of an ongoing series by producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.
