The ‘Verzuz’ battle of Ashanti and Keyshia Cole has been postponed
Roommate, I think it’s safe to say the internet is so upset overall after it was confirmed that Ashanti and Keyshia Cole will postpone their ‘Verzuz’ fight because Ashanti caught COVID-19! The news came just hours before the festivities began and, to put it simply … people weren’t taking it very well. The Jasmine brand reported only on the shift. Shortly after, Ashanti took to Instagram to confirm the reports and suggest that she would still be ready to take part in a fight tonight. See what she had to say below:
That didn’t take long, as Ashanti hit Instagram Live about 20 minutes later to really spill tea on the events that were playing out.
If you didn’t know, Ashanti took a trip to Kenya a few days before the Keyshia Cole fight, and people may have been speculating online whether she would get back to the US in time to fight the fight. So much speculation that Ashanti had to purify the air! She said very specifically that she did not catch the coronavirus because of her travels, instead she apparently hugged a family member who was positive and unaware of her status. See what she had to say below:
Things got even more interesting after both Keyshia and Ashanti hopped on Instagram Live to further explain the situation and give each other support in the face of the last minute news. Keyshia seemed very supportive of Ashanti’s welfare and confirmed that the night would be a celebration for two incredible women with incredible music. See the following conversation:
The new battle is scheduled for January 9th, 2021! Will you still tune in ?!
