He has now thanked the doctors and nurses for “saving his life” as he celebrated being allowed to go home.

Jeremih told TMZ: “First and foremost, I would like to thank God and the incredible team of doctors and nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for saving my life. I will be forever grateful.”
