Brian Temba has tested positive for Covid-19. The musician shared the bad news with his followers on social media on Tuesday night.
He revealed that he tested positive on Sunday. Brian expressed that he never thought that the coronavirus would affect him.
"Sometime we take things for granted and we think some of the bad things that happen in the world would not affect us until it’s on your door step. A few days ago I tested positive for Covid-19 when I thought it would be something that wouldn’t even get close to me."
The actor said as much as he is scared, he trusts God will help him get through this difficult time in his life.
"You can imagine my fear after that, but I remembered the Word said 'No weapon formed against me shall prosper.' I have a family I love, so I have to beat this. I’m on the mend as we speak and will come out victorious.
"I'm hoping and praying that I'll get through this. Take care of yourselves, this thing is serious. Be safe."
