Ashanti and Keyshia Cole were scheduled to do a Verzuz battle on December 12, 2020. Ashanti took to IG to reveal why the event wasn’t happening after all. She posted a message that read, “Hey y’all. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I tested positive for COVID-19. I’m OK and not in any pain. I’m actually down to do the Verzuz from my house…we’re trying to figure it out.” the battle has been postponed until Saturday, January 9.
