This past weekend kicked off Mother’s Day and another Verzuz!
The battle was between the R&B divas, SWV and Escape. During the first half of the battle, fans noticed something was off with SWV’s lead singer, Coko Clemons. It looked like she was annoyed and didn’t want to be there.
Coko hopped on social media to share the real reason she was upset. She explained that fans were correct, and before going to the battle, she was in a traumatic situation. Unfortunately, Coko witnessed a woman getting shot outside of her hotel room. She said,
“Last night, as I’m preparing for Verzuz, a lady was shot outside my hotel window. To see & hear the four shots, see her laying on the ground, and all the blood was unbelievable!! Then…I get to the venue and had a really bad anxiety attack! [Crying] & screaming.” She continued,
“Yeah, [you all] saw me looking uncomfortable & irritated during the first half but, if it [weren’t] for my son @jayyemichael @ynottamiya & @mrljb I probably wouldn’t have been out there at all. Thank you for calming me down & understanding my mental. I love [you all] to the fullest!! I always say most won’t care to understand but when you get those, that do cherish them!!” Take a look:
