Is Young MA okay? Fans are worried after her video went viral


Young MA, also known as Katorah Kasanova Marrero, is a 30-year-old American rapper who is best known for releasing the quadruple platinum single “Ooouuu”, which hit #20 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has 400 million views on his YouTube music video.

She gained fame and raised her status at a very young age, earning her accolades and awards such as being nominated for BET and reaching the MTV Female Hip-Hop Artist of the Year award. She’s recently taken a back seat to her health sting, which has put the artist through a series of medical exams and hospital tours.

What is a Young MA going through?

In response to the viral video that raised questions about her health, Young MA told that she is recovering after a series of medical complications.

As Young MA quotes:

“As many of my supporters know, I’ve been dealing with several personal health issues in the past few years. I’ve recently been hospitalized and have been successfully treated for several conditions. I’m doing much better now; it’ll take some time, but I’m on the road to recovery and look forward to the future.” ! “

The 30-year-old artist ended her statement by saying, “Rest assured, I’m in good spirits, and everything will be explained in the music… plus a documentary. I love you all MAB! Don’t worry, I’m fine!”

Although she refuses to reveal what she’s been going through, she comforts the audience by saying she’s going to release it all to music. As Young MA mentioned that better things are coming, it gave the audience hope to await her comeback.

Since the Brooklyn MC’s previous full project was released about two years ago, there’s a lot of anticipation for what she’ll release next, once her health issues are completely under control and she’s moving in the right direction.
