R&B singer Jeremih has finally opened up about his battle with COVID-19 after spending weeks in a Chicago hospital. The singer opened up on her battle with the virus during a joint interview with Chance the Rapper on Sway’s Universe.
I was really down bad for the last month and a half that I was in there. “I don’t even remember the day I went in there that’s how messed up I was.” The singer revealed that the hospital initially blocked his mother, Gwenda Starling, from seeing him due to COVID restrictions but allowed her to see him after Chance the Rapper intervened.
“I had a tube down my throat for about a week and a half. I was really like in a dream, I woke up two times and all I remember seeing is a white light.” Jeremih shared that he developed multiple inflammatory syndrome a rare cause and effect of the disease.

“All my organs became inflamed. My heart started beating irregularly, my kidneys went out, my liver started to go bad. Mind you, I didn’t know what was gong on at the time. I was out. Once I was removed from ICU after that week and a half I was going through recovery where I had to learn how to walk again, eat, all that stuff. Mind you, I’ve never been to a hospital in my entire life — not for a broken bone, not for nothing. So just to be in there I look at it as a blessing. As crazy as it might sound, I needed to sit down. I needed to take a break.”
