Spotted departing the Sirius XM headquarters, DC Young Fly offered an earnest update on his emotional state. The comedian told TMZ he felt “great love, great energy” and had been seeking solace in the company of his friends and colleagues, Karlous Miller and Chico Bean.

“God is the greatest — he’s granted me the strength to keep going,” DC Young Fly admitted, reflecting on his new role as the sole caretaker of his three children, Nova, 6, Nala, 2, and Prince’Nehemiah, 10 months.

Jacky Oh passed away in Miami in May, leaving her young family to mourn her sudden loss.

Although DC Young Fly acknowledged his grief, he confirmed he prefers to maintain a positive public demeanor. “We human, we emotional — people want to see you cry, but I’m just not gonna record myself crying and show you I’m crying,” he explained, adding that he’s been privately shedding his tears.

While navigating his loss, DC Young Fly has been relishing the success of his Netflix special. The comedian shared a snapshot on Instagram of the trio posing before a Times Square billboard featuring their promotional material, highlighting their achievement.

Further fueling his celebration, he also shared a Forbes article that reported “85 South: Ghetto Legends” debuting at No. 1 on Netflix’s top shows in the U.S., surpassing popular series “Black Mirror” and the newly added legal drama “Suits.”

Striving to inspire his followers, DC Young Fly captioned the celebratory images, “Gotta stay goin’ strong for your dream, and live it up to the fullest!!” with the uplifting hashtag, “#GODIsTheGreatest.”
