• Jeremih is back on social media after his weeks-long bout with COVID-19
  • The singer shared a couple of photos to remind his fans that he "is still here"
  • This news came days after he was placed on ventilator because of breathing problems 

Singer Jeremih has returned to social media following his battle with COVID-19 that landed him in an intensive care unit in November.

After falling seriously ill with COVID-19, Jeremih was released from the hospital earlier this month. A few days later, he took to Instagram to share selfies and informed his fans that he is back.

“THANK GOD IM STILL HERE, THANK Y’ALL FOR THE [praying emoji] UP #imbackkkk,” Jeremih captioned the photos.

In a statement sent to TMZ after he went home to recover, Jeremih thanked God and the medical staff of Northwestern Memorial Hospital for saving his life. The singer also expressed his gratitude to his family and friends, particularly Chance the Rapper, 50 Cent and Diddy, for their support.

"I would also like to thank all my fans and people around the world who prayed for me. I'm getting stronger everyday, and look forward to spending time with my sons," he added.

The singer's hospitalization because of complications from COVID-19 was made public in November. Reports swirled that Jeremih, whose real name is Jeremy Felton, had to be placed on ventilator in the ICU because of how severely ill he had become.

His representative confirmed the news, explaining that it was “rare for a man his age without underlying conditions.” Jeremih’s family, meanwhile, explained that the coronavirus had seriously affected his body and made it hard for him to breathe properly.

“His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly,” the statement read.

While at the ICU, Jeremih received utmost support from his friends in the music industry, who took to social media to ask for prayers for the artist. Chance the Rapper said in a tweet that the “Planez” hitmaker is like a brother to him.

“I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him,” Chance wrote.

Jeremih was eventually taken out of the ventilator days later and was transferred to a regular hospital room, although he wasn’t out of the woods yet. He was still battling COVID-19 at the time, but his family said that this was when his “true healing” began.
