Darlyn Morais, a Brazilian singer, died as a result of complications from being bitten in the face by a spider.
On October 31, Morais became ill after being bitten by a spider at his home in the northeastern city of Miranorte.
According to Morais’ wife, Jhullyenny Lisboa, his 18-year-old stepdaughter, was also bitten by a spider and is currently hospitalized in stable condition.
According to Lisboa, Morais experienced body fatigue and the color of the bruise on his face began to change as a result of the bite.
Morais experienced allergic reactions later in the week and was taken to a hospital in Miranorte, where he was treated and released on Friday.
“On the same day (October 31), he felt weakness in his body and his face began to darken,” Lisboa said. “He went to the hospital and was admitted on Sunday to Palmas General Hospital.”
Morais performed forró, a popular genre of music in Brazil’s northeast region that combines the accordion, zabumba, and metal triangle.
His brother and a friend made up his small three-man band.
“He was always surrounded by friends and it was always a reason to celebrate for him,’ his cousin, Wesleya Silva, told G1.”
“Always very happy and smiling with everyone around him. Owner of a giant heart, always helping the people around him.”
