Popular Tanzanian musician Rayvanny alias Vanny Boy has released a new song dubbed ‘Corona’ featuring Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli.
‘Corona’ is all about the deadly Corona Virus that has left thousands dead across the world, and many countries on lockdown.
In the new release, Rayvanny educates his fans about the virus, and urges the Almighty God to intervene and send forth a cure.
“Wote tumwombe Mungu kwa hili janga, ikibidi lipite, tujihadhari na tujikinge ili lisitufike, habari kote duniani zimesambaa, ugonjwa unauwa na hauna tiba, na wengi wetu maskini hatujiwezi Mwenyezi Mungi ukawe tiba… Osha mikono, epuka mikusanyiko isiyo ya lazima, na uonapo dalili mapema waii hospitali," the song’s lyrics read in part.
After Rayvanny verse, President Magufuli is quoted urging Tanzanians to adhere to the safety hygiene measures detailed by the country’s health Ministry.
Magufuli noted that Corona is a deadly virus and implored the residents not to take the said measures for granted.
So far, only the audio version has been released, with the video expected later. A few days ago, Tanzania confirmed its first case of Corona virus.
Last week, Kenyan musician Gimmy Gait also released a song on the same subject.
