Several of Jeremih’s friends and collaborators took to social media on Saturday asking for prayers. “He’s not doing good this covid shit is real,” wrote 50 Cent in an Instagram post. “He’s in ICU in Chicago.”

“Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih, tweeted Chance the Rapper. “He is like a brother to me and he’s ill right now. I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him.”

Update – November 18th: Jeremih’s family has offered an update on the singer’s condition in a statement given to CNN. “The family believes daily prayers to God. A great team of doctors and nurses is helping him pull through,” reads the statement. He’s not out of the woods yet, but progress is being made. The family and friends are praying that he starts breathing on his own soon, and makes a full recovery.

“His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly. Also, it’s important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP. There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others.”
