I announced it on my Instagram page @meggax asking anyone who can locate her for me since I’m based in South Africa and she’s in Nigeria. I don’t know her or anything about her but luckily one of my followers happened to know her through his dad praying mosque and sent some money to her and other less privileged around the country,” he said.

The SelfPaid Entertainment Signee advised that all international borders should remain closed to avoid people from other countries from entering, “Our government should make  provision for the citizens to stay home for a while till we find out solutions to this Coronavirus. They should also make sure all social places like school, churches, markets and many more gardens are closed for now, until we find solutions. Again, I think security agencies should be sent out to make sure people stay at home to avoid the spread of the virus.”

He continued, ” As a celebrity all you need to do is to support the government by using your platforms to spread love and peace to the citizens to stay at home. I think this is not a time to promote music rather you promote peace and encourage your fans to understand that everything will soon pass away. It is also a time they should help the fans with the little they can to avoid them going out for looking for their daily food.”

The multi-talented Entertainer born in Lagos, expressed his excitement as his music career continues to soar with the release of his new track, Badman featuring Magnito.

“I’ve achieved a lot in the music industry. My singles has really gotten airplay in Nigeria radio stations and here in South Africa and this really fetched me a lot of gigs from different clubs and events in which you can confirm on my Instagram @meggax. I’ve really put more stuffs out there and they are unique and trending sounds. The latest is Badman featuring Magnito,” he gushed.
