The coronavirus pandemic has led to a series of changes in the lifestyles of people all over the world. A number of people have lost their jobs while business owners can no longer go out to make a living.
The pandemic which started in Wuhan, China, has spread to almost every part of the world and the government as well as health organisations have advised people to stay at home to avoid contracting or spreading the disease.
The world has halted in many ways as a result of the pandemic and it has been said that poor people will have a serious hard time coping this period because they cannot afford to stock up.
Just recently, South African rapper, Cassper Nyovest, took to social media via his Twitter page to speak on how the pandemic will greatly affect musicians in his country.
The rapper said that if the coronavirus lockdown goes on for more than three months, a lot of musicians will go hungry.
Nyovest also said that it is not as if celebrities do not want to help but that they do not have the money to do so.
He wrote: “We don't have Rihanna money. Truth is, we don't even know what we gone eat if the lockdown goes down for more than 3 months. Maybe if we were supported and stanned like yall stan Drake and Rihanna we would have the money to help. It's not that we don't want to, we don't have.”
