Pop singer Maeta was bitten by a snake while filming a music video. The musician – who was signed to Jay Z’s label Roc Nation in April this year – shared images of the incident on Instagram and Twitter last week, where it has since gone viral.
In the short clip, the 21-year-old was seen lying on a carpet, surrounded by a number of snakes. Dressed in black lace, she was seen smiling before one of the snakes crawled up her chin and bit her. Clearly taken aback, Maeta recoiled in pain and pushed the snake away. âOh, it bit her like that,â one person was heard off camera as the singer turned away, obviously in pain.
âWhat I’m going through to make videos for all of you,â Maeta wrote while sharing the video on Instagram. “Never again,” she added, sharing the same clip on Twitter.
The video has been viewed over 4.8 lakh times since it was posted to Instagram last week.
According to People Magazine, none of the snakes used in the clip were poisonous. The singer suffered no other injuries, except for the bite to the chin.
R&B singer Maeta, 21, started posting songs to SoundCloud as a teenager. She rose to prominence earlier this year after signing with Jay Z Roc Nation’s management label and releasing her debut album Habits.
