Just a few months ago, fans, friends and family members prayed for a speedy recovery after Jeremih was hospitalized due to health complications caused by the coronavirus. Thankfully, the Chicago native recovered and was able to issue a message to his fans just before Christmas.
“My heart was beating irregularly. My liver and kidneys were out. I can talk about this now because, thank God, I’ve made it and I’m still here, but I was on dialysis. I was on things I can only recall my grandparents talking about, to be so young,” he told ABC 7 in Chicago.
“If I had to be the example, I’ll take it, because a lot of people might just be taking it for granted, still out partying and amongst their friends. It happened to me and I happen to be one of the few who made it.”
Having recovered from the virus, Jeremih is stepping back into the limelight. The chart-topping artist is preparing to star in the upcoming series from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Power Book IV: Force. The series will center around Tommy Eagan, played by Joseph Sikora, as he leaves New York and starts a new life. Alongside Sikora, Jeremih will play the role of a high-ranking official in the CBI named Elijah. Jeremih and Sikora will be joined by Isaac Keys, Lili Simmons, Gabrielle Ryan and Shane Harper in this series.
Power Book III: Raising Kanan will debut this July. Power Book IV: Force will follow on Starz.
