The ‘Birthday Sex’ hitmaker is set to make his first major acting gig on the upcoming third spinoff of Starz’s hit drama series ‘Power’ after surviving Covid-19.
AceShowbiz -R&B star Jeremih has landed his first major acting gig on 50 Cent‘s latest “Power” spin-off.
The “Birthday Sex” hitmaker has been cast in crime drama series “Power Book IV: Force“, in which he will star alongside Joseph Sikora who reprises his “Power” role as Tommy Egan as he leaves New York for Chicago, Illinois.
The show, executive produced by Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent, is currently in production in Jeremih’s hometown of Chicago.
The news emerges months after Jeremih overcame a scary battle with COVID-19, which landed him in a hospital intensive care unit for weeks at the end of 2020.
“Pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this covid s**t is real,” 50 Cent sent prayers for the star on Twitter back then.
Besides “Power Book IV: Force”, the rapper developed “Power Book II: Ghost” which featured Mary J. Blige as well as Method Man and saw Joseph Sikora’s return. It premiered in 2020 and got an early renewal for a second season.
Another spin-off “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” is due later this year. It stars the likes of Malcolm M. Mays, Mekai Curtis, Omar Epps, and Hailey Kilgore.
Being one of Starz’s most highly rated shows, “Power” received numerous accolades including the prestigious NAACP Image Awards.
50 Cent, however, was upset when the show got snubbed at the Emmy Awards. Last year, he lashed out by posting a picture of a black man’s buttocks on Twitter, “ok here it is Emmy’s, My Black a** for your consideration to kiss. F**k your organization I only care about NAACP awards.”
