Brazilian singer Darlyn Morais, 28, lost his life after a venomous spider bite at his residence in the northeastern city of Miranorte, Brazil, on October 31.
Reports from the Daily Mail reveal that Morais developed a severe allergic reaction to the spider bite on his face, leading to his admission to a local hospital on Sunday. Despite efforts, he passed away on Monday, November 6.
The unfortunate incident didn’t spare Morais’ 18-year-old stepdaughter, who also fell victim to a spider bite and was subsequently hospitalized.
She is reported to be in stable condition, according to Morais’ wife, Jhullyenny Lisboa, who shared the details with Brazilian news outlet G1.
Lisboa recounted Morais’ ordeal, noting that he initially sought medical attention for fatigue and observed discoloration on his face.
The singer visited a hospital in Miranorte later in the week, where he received treatment and was discharged on Friday.
However, his health deteriorated, prompting a second admission to Palmas General Hospital on Sunday.
Darlyn Morais, a talent who delved into the music scene at the age of 15, was known for his contributions to forró, a popular genre in Brazil’s northeast.
His three-man band, featuring his brother and a friend, reflected his passion for the unique blend of accordion, zabumba, and metal triangle that defines the forró musical style.
The music community mourns the loss of a promising artist, and condolences pour in for Morais’ family and friends during this difficult time.
