Ashanti and Keyshia Cole Speak On Postponed Verzuz Battle After Positive COVID Status

Let’s get ready to rummmmbllllleeee…now on January 9th, 2021, since the highly-anticipated Verzuz matchup between R&B starlets Ashanti and Keyshia Cole is now postponed due to Ashanti revealing that she has tested positive for Covid-19.

When word went out that the two hit-making, songwriting singers were to face-off tonight (Dec. 12), the social media world was in a frenzy…that same world was in just as much of a frenzy when the match was called off about two hours before start time. So many expressed doubt in Ashanti’s health status and felt that she was “scared” to go up against Keyshia. As insensitive as that assertion is, Ashanti jumped on Instagram Live to address her health and to state that she was ready to battle from her house, via Zoom, FaceTime, or any other platform.

Watch her IG Live where she breaks down her feelings, as well as chats with Keyshia Cole (their convo starts at the 31:02 minute mark). Let’s wish Ashanti a speedy recovery and keep positive vibes for this special event to happen in the New Year.
