Ashanti Covid-Free and Ready for Verzuz

Ashanti reveals she tested negative for COVID-19

A few weeks ago, the long-awaited Verzuz battle with Ashanti and Keyshia Cole was postponed due to Ashanti testing positive for COVID-19. Even with current-day technology and wanting to continue with the battle, Verzuz decided to postpone the event until January 9th.

Ashanti posted to her social media Friday [Jan 1] stating she tested negative and is now “healed” from COVID-19.

Ashanti contracts COVID-19 from a family member, not from travels to Africa

Prior to the scheduled date for the Verzuz battle, Ashanti had just returned to the country from traveling throughout Africa. It was assumed this was how she tested positive, but the singer made it clear that this wasn’t the case.

“To be very, very, very clear — yes I’ve been traveling. Yes I went to Nairobi; I had an amazing time. No, I did not get COVID from traveling. I did not get COVID from being in Africa or anything like that,” Ashanti said during an Instagram Live in December. “Everyone that I went on the trip with has tested [negative]. They went from country to country; they went to Uganda so they have to continue to get tested. No one tested positive. I did not get it from traveling.”

“I actually got it from a family member when I came home,” she continued. “I came home and I hugged a family member who ended up being positive. I didn’t know he was positive; he didn’t know he was positive, so when he went to get tested, I was like, ‘Oh fuck.’”

Now that Ashanti is COVID-free, she’s ready (and so are we) to take on Keyshia Cole in their highly anticipated Verzuz battle that is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 9.
