The coronavirus pandemic is threatening to bring the world to its knees as even developed countries are struggling to contain the virus with as little casualties as possible, a task that is proving to be very difficult.
Many Africans were initially lax about the whole coronavirus scare as people started to peddle rumours that blacks cannot be affected by the disease.
Well, time has proven them wrong as people of different races and colour have suffered from coronavirus, with some of them dying.
In reaction to the pandemic, some popular personalities have taken to social media to make pledges that would help people who are struggling during this time.
Just recently, Nigerian singer, Bright Ukpabi aka Mr Dutch, took to social media via his Twitter page to promise to give fans money during this COVID-19 period.
Mr Dutch promised to give five South African fans R1000 each and five Nigerians N20,000 each.
He wrote: “Due to the #COVID19 crisis around the world. I decided I’m gonna give R1000 to 5 people in #SouthAfrica and N20,000 for 5 people in #Nigeria who needs help with food.”
