Cape Town - Mike Posner - who penned songs like Boyfriend and Beneath Your Beautiful - is on the road to recovery after a scary rattlesnake bite. 

The 31-year-old is on an odyssey across the United States, from New Jersey to California, in honour of Mac Miller and Avicii, as well as his own late father.

In a post on his Instagram (uploaded on Sunday), Mike said about the incident: "I knew walking across America was going to be dangerous. I knew I could die doing it. I still might. So don't feel sorry for me,".

He went on: "I'm proud I'm in this hospital after chasing my dream and not sitting on the couch watching Netflix. I'm proud of this pain."
