On October 31, Darlyn Morais, a 28-year-old singer from Brazil, passed away following a spider bite at his residence in the northern city of Miranorte.
Morais was reportedly hospitalized on Sunday after experiencing an adverse response to the spider bite on his face. As of Wednesday, Daily Mail reported, he passed away on Monday, November 6.
According to Morais’ wife Jhullyenny Lisboa, his 18-year-old stepdaughter also got bitten by a spider, was hospitalized, and her condition was stable, as reported by G1, a Brazilian news source.
Lisboa said that Morais experienced body fatigue and that the colour of the bruise on his face started to change as a result of the bite.
Morais developed allergic reactions later during the week and visited a hospital in Miranorte, where he was treated and discharged on Friday.
Lisboa said, “He felt weakness in his body, and his face started to darken on the same day, October 31. He went to the hospital and was admitted to Palmas General Hospital on Sunday.”
At the age of 15, Morais entered the music industry and began singing forró, a popular music genre in northeastern Brazil based on a fusion of accordion, zabumba, and metal triangle. His brother and a friend were in his little three-piece band.
