SWV’s Coko Clemons Scary Encounter

Contributed by Scott Lipscomb

This past Mother’s Day the beloved Verzuz battle took place in Atlanta with the groups SWV and Xscape.

However SWV member Coko Clemons witnessed a scary encounter the night before the show which led to why fans described her looking “irritated” or “out of it.”

“Last Night as I am preparing for verzuz a lady was shot outside my hotel window. To see and hear the four shots, see her laying on the ground and all the blood was unbelievable!!” Clemons wrote on instagram.

Coko revealed that that harrowing ordeal contributed to a really bad anxiety attack that almost made her not perform.

“Literally crying & screaming. Yeah y’all saw me looking uncomfortable & irritated during the first half but if it wasn’t for my son @jayyemichael @ynottamiya and @mrljb I probably wouldn’t have been out there at all.”

Coko closed the post by thanking her loved ones for easing her nerves and understanding her mental state. “I always say most won’t care to understand but when you get those that do cherish them!!” she added.
