They say hindsight is 20/20 and Meek isn’t the only one having the realization that they may have fought off COVID-19 well before it became a global pandemic.

Sunday, fellow rapper Styles P shared his suspicions that he too had contacted “the Rona” as Black Twitter calls it. His bout was back January and was so serious that he believed himself to be on the brink of death.

“I never get the flu and if I do it’s a day or two, he explained. “I was down for a week and lost about 8 pounds !! I had the rona !! It had to be the Rona !!!!I did mad black seed oil and went on a juice / tea diet and rested ! Go for it !!”

He then gave his holistic elixer recipe which consisted of, “Black seed oil, oil of oregano, ginger lemon and turmeric juiced with cayenne pepper on top ,super lysine pills. Elderberry syrup and Epsom salts baths and prayers and deep breathing !!”

When a fan inquired how he contracted the virus, the entertainer who is a big proponent of social distancing opined, “Most of us will get or have had the virus ! – lot of people were sick during dec and January before they even announced the virus no doctor but stay away from people n do things to boost your immune system n rest up. And spread the word.”
