Ashanti and Keyshia Cole were supposed to face off in a Verzuz battle on Saturday, Jan. 9 but it's been cancelled.
The battle was originally supposed to take place in December but was pushed back after Ashanti caught COVID-19. The second postponement is also because of the virus, and the Verzuz organizers said the battles will be going back to artists being in separate rooms.
Some were bothered that the battle was postponed again.
“This has been an emotional week,” a message read. “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 … Ashanti vs Keyshia Cole: Coming soon.”
