I regret to mention that my album launch has been moved to the 24th of April #CoronaVirusSA. The good news is that the digital release f my next single is still going ahead this friday #Uzokhala #BamakoIsComing #SafetyFirst Quote Tweet
The worried mother also made it known that she is self-isolating and concerned how long the lockdown will last for and if what he has in stock would sustain her family:
Did stock up. But only 2 trolleys. Kids and I in self isolation. Each one of us in their rooms. About to make a killer breakfast. Kitchen is the only place we meet. Hands and faces washed all the time. Anti inflammation meds on standby. Wonder if we’ll survive 2 weeks like this
