©️ SOUTH Africa-based Afro Fusion musician William Magwiroto, popularly known as Willionair, has tested positive for coronavirus (Covid-19).
Last year he topped the Power FM and Zifm charts with the hit song Where Do We Go Now which he collaborated with Reverb 7 and Mr Kamera. He also featured on a song titled Odeyewu by Nigerian artiste D.Drizz which was released in July and is currently doing well in west and east Africa.
In an interview with the Daily News, Willionair said: “Unfortunately my video director developed a fever on March 22 and he got tested for Covid-19 and the results were positive.
“I was then called on March 27 and got tested too since I interacted with him between March 15 and 21 and unfortunately my results came out positive as well but I have not developed any symptoms yet.”
Willionair said prior to that, in early March he was preparing to shoot a video in Johannesburg for his song titled Ndoringa which was produced by Reverb 7.
He said, however, his video director then travelled to the United States between February and early March and they then decided to postpone the video shoot, set for March 18, to a later date due to the outbreak of the global Covid-19 outbreak.
“Currently I am looking healthy and I am receiving my treatment in self-isolation here in Johannesburg,” he said.
The musician said he is urging everyone to continue taking care of themselves, make use of sanitisers, wash hands as often as possible, practice social-distancing and avoid going out at all costs.
“Please stay at home and be safe. I wholeheartedly ask all my family, friends, fans and those that love me to be with me in their prayers and to remain focused and faithful.
“Let us all fight Covid-19, it is indeed real.”
