As the world continues to battle with the dreaded coronavirus pandemic also known as COVID-19, many people appear to be turning to religious books for solutions.
American music star turned businessman, Sean John Combs, professionally known as Diddy, recently took to his Instagram page to advise people to draw closer to God and make things right with Him.
The American star stated this after he shared a photo of a scripture from the Bible that talks about God sending an epidemic and prayers and repentance being the solution.
Chronicles 7:13-14 reads: "Whenever I hold back the rain or send locusts to eat up the crops or send an epidemic on my people, if they pray to men and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, then I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins, and make their land prosperous again."

Meanwhile, we can always count on our favourite Mzansi’s musicians. With South Africa entering the fourth day of the 21-day lockdown in order to curtail the spread of COVID-19, these amazing people have taken up the challenge to sing the National Anthem and spread hope and unity.
Monday saw a video which featured dozens of artists singing Nkosi Sikelel’iAfrika which was the launching of the Anthem Challenge.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Moonchild, Busiswa, Danny K, Kurt Darren, Proverb, Tumi Morake, Corlea Botha, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Zolani Mahola, Juliet Harding and KB Mamosadi, are a few of the talented artists that voices will be heard in this beautiful project. They are encouraging all South Africans to come together and do the same.
The aim of the project is to encourage over 1 000 South Africans to take part and perform the largest-ever virtual rendition of the National Anthem, all while being in lockdown.
Ma Yvonne spoke to TshisaLIVE and told how she jumped at the opportunity to be part of the challenge. She said it will spread hope at a time of uncertainty and now is the time for all of us to stand together.
She explained that the dreadful virus does not have a home and if we do not take heed and adhere to the rules, it will find its way into our homes. She went on to say that this is time for introspection, time to appreciate life, this is why we ask God to bless Africa.
