Doja Cat has revealed that she contracted COVID-19 but has made a full recovery after a four-day ordeal.
This comes after the 24-year-old American rapper, whose real name is Amalaratna “Amala” Zandile Dlamini, downplayed the virus and said “she didn’t give a f***’ about the pandemic.
Speaking to Capital XTRA, the musician explained that she had a “freakout” of symptoms that lasted four days. She didn’t say when she came down with the virus but speculated that she had contracted it through a food delivery service.
“I got COVID,” Doja Cat said.
“Honestly, I don’t know how this happens, but I guess I ordered something off of Postmates and I don’t know how I got it, but I got it.”
The songstress added: “I’m okay now. It was a four-day symptom freakout, but I’m fine now.”
At the start of the pandemic, during an Instagram Live, Doja Cat compared COVID-19 to the flu and seemingly shamed people who were taking precautions against the virus.
She said back in March: “Bit**, I’m not scared of a coronavirus or the motherf***ing beer version of that s**t.”
She added: “I’m gonna get corona and then I’m gonna get a Corona cos I don’t give a f*** about corona, b****. It’s a flu. I’m not scared. Y’all are p****.”
She continued: “You just take some Mucinex and drink water and tea and sleep — that’s all you gotta do. Y’all are so scared of some damn corona. Y’all are so scared of corona that I need a Corona.”
