Jeremih returns to social media after month-long hospitalisation with Covid-19

Jeremih has returned to social media after a month-long hospitalisation with Covid-19.

The 33-year-old was admitted to hospital in November battling complications from coronavirus, which his family said were ‘rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions’.

The Don’t Tell Em singer was discharged over the weekend, and has shared his first post to Instagram since his illness.

Jeremih, real name Jeremy Felton, posted before and after pictures depicting his journey from his hospital bed to the hairdressers.

In the first picture, the star appeared to be in a hospital bed, and wore a plaster on his neck.

Stefflon Don commented: ‘God is good’, while rapper Dreezy added: ‘Wow 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 this just made my day! God is good! You sooo blessed bro love you.’

The Birthday Sex singer had been placed on a ventilator to help him breathe after testing positive for Covid-19, with his family revealing in a statement that the virus had ‘viciously attacked Jeremih’s body’.

Celebrity friends including 50 Cent, Diddy and Chance The Rapper urged their followers on social media to pray for Jeremih, with 50 writing: ‘Pray for my boy @jeremih he’s not doing good.

‘This covid s*** is real. He’s in ICU in Chicago.’

Jeremih made sure to thank the stars when he released a statement following his release from hospital.

He said: ‘First and foremost, I would like to thank God and the incredible team of doctors and nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for saving my life. I will be forever grateful.

‘I would also like to thank my family and friends for all their prayers and well wishes. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude.

‘A special thanks to Chance The Rapper, 50 Cent and Diddy for their love and support.’

In the wake of the good news, it was announced that Jeremih and Chance are dropping their joint compilation album Merry Christmas Lil Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving, which will feature two new original songs, as well as holiday hits from the pair’s previously released Merry Christmas Lil Mama mixtapes. 

In Illinois, where Jeremih lives, there have been over 800,000 cases of Covid-19, and over 14,000 deaths.
