- The star said that he is thinking of his own livelihood which requires being in public and he wants to get back to it and be safe
The rapper K.O has taken to social media to encourage his fans to have faith and trust in the widely-anticipated Covid-19 vaccine.
K.O tweeted his thoughts after President Cyril Ramaphosa's address to the nation included the information that South Africa would be receiving a vaccine for Covid-19 in 2021.
The rapper posted that he is ready and waiting for the vaccine that has been internationally approved and also that he had no time for internet conspiracy theories surrounding it.
The rapper added that he is keen to get back to what he does best. K.O mentioned that his livelihood requires him to be in public and that he wanted to make sure his performances are safe.
K.O wrote in his tweet:
“The vaccine in SA is only arriving second quarter of 2021 as per the president. I’m pro the internationally approved Covid-19 vaccine, miss me with the theories. My livelihood is outside and I wanna get to it without being paranoid,” said K.O.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on Anele criticising the way the international media has been reporting on the strain of coronavirus that had cases in South Africa.
Anele Mdoda has added her voice to the online outcry over a mutated version of the Covid-19 virus being labelled the "South African strain".
The initial outrage was sparked after The Japan Times published an article that reported on how Japan had confirmed its first case of the strain that had also been found in multiple patients in South Africa.
The issue came in because the publication had labelled the mutated virus as the "South African coronavirus strain"
Many South African tweeps caught wind of the article that mentioned the strain as being South African and flooded the mentions of The Japan Times. The commenters expressed how unhelpful and unnecessary it was to try and blame a country for a viral mutation.
Health minister Zweli Mkhize had confirmed the strain earlier this month and explained how it has driven South Africa's second wave of infections. There have also been reports of another mutation having been discovered in the United Kingdom.
Anele weighed in said that she recognised the game of attempting to lay blame and wrote:
"I see this tennis y'all are playing !!!"
