Ashanti & Keyshia Cole Verzuz Postponed Again!

Corona is a total buzzkill as it has caused the postponement of the Ashanti and Keyshia Cole Verzuz battle again.

The ladies were originally set to face off last month, however, it was postponed. Ashanti confirmed that she tested positive for COVID-19. Fans of the R&B divas anticipated the battle which was scheduled for Saturday, January 9th. Ashanti and Keyshia Cole’s battle would have been the second in Verzuz’s second season.

Now the event has been pushed back again. The announcement was made on Verzuz’s official Instagram account as it also revealed that artists will no longer be at the same location due to COVID-19. The post read:


“This has been an emotional week. In addition, as COVID-19 numbers continue to increase, safety is a top priority for us. As much as we enjoy having everyone together in the same room, to protect the artists and everyone who works with us in putting the shows together, we’ll be going back to separate locations for a bit. We’re excited for the next few events, and look forward to getting back to the show in the coming weeks.

“If y’all postponing again just keep it ! We ova it at this point “
