Gazza says he will go to the extent of releasing a song each week if it means keeping people home.
Award-winning artist Lazarus Shiimi known by his stage name Gazza believes that Operation Kalahari should patrol streets to make sure everyone stays home because Covid-19 is more serious than one could imagine.
Gazza urged Namibians to avoid large gatherings too as it can put them at risk of contracting the virus and further insured that they will be entertained while at home. “ we will make sure that you are entertained while at home even if it means releasing a new song every week.” Gazza said in his recent post on twitter.
He further added that something has to change and that recovering from Coronavirus might be tougher than surviving hence people should be careful. In response to people’s comments on his tweet, he suggested possible ways Namibians can do to stay indoor and be safe. This includes street kids and people in rural areas who may lack knowledge about how the virus spread and how they can avoid getting infected.
While some think that Gazza’s idea is great because there are ignorant people in Namibia, others feel like it will be hard to avoid large gatherings as people living in informal settlements will have to gather at one point to fetch water every day.
Responding to Gazza’s tweet, Anne Hambuda suggested that Gazza should have a live Instagram concert and she is willing to be the master of ceremony. Anne Hambuda is a poet, presenter, writer, voice artist, content creator and promoter.
