Papa Penny has done his bit to encourage South Africans to stay at home during the 21-day lockdown.
The musician and reality TV star has asked the citizens to adhere to the rules of the lockdown implemented by President Cyril Ramaphosa in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
In a video shared by fellow musician Arthur Mafokate on social media, Papa Penny warned citizens not to blame government when they get infected with the virus.
"Yes everyone, all townships in Johannesburg. Let's try to respect ourselves, let's try to respect our president. Tomorrow you're going to be sick and you'll say that 'government doesn't look after you'."
He asked South Africans to respect their lives and practice social distancing while the country is in lockdown.
"Move from the street, lock yourself in your home. Our behaviour is totally wrong. Every morning we're seeing people ignoring the police, ignoring the army, why? This is about us, it's not about someone else. Please South Africans!"
However, most social media users found the muso's use of the English language hilarious. Instead of focusing on the serious message he was trying to convey, they focused on the English words he butchered.
"Your home is not a prisoner."
"My favourite celebrity......#StayHome, 'Your home is not a prisoner'.... Aheee."
"We are going to sick struuu."
"Papa Penny you are a legend, stop nignoring the government guys please ...Aheeeeee!!!"
"'Your home is not a Prisoner.' Deep English... You're getting there old man. Never give up on English."
