It’s been 11 days since the lockdown started and most people aren’t coping with the fact that they really can’t do the things that make them happy, including local artists. Idols SA winner Yanga Sobetwa is using this time to educate young girls and boys about the importance of washing their hands during the coronavirus pandemic.

Yanga says that it is important for young people to really take the virus seriously, and adhere to the rules of practising safe hygiene and staying at home.

“Covid-19 is affecting every living human being in the world. It’s only human for me to want to spread awareness about how to protect yourself from this disease and getting infected.

“For me, this campaign is important because I have a group of little kids who are following me, who are looking up to me. I want to be a role model who shows young children how to protect themselves from the virus.

The singer elaborated that with this campaign she was trying to save every child from contracting the virus.

“The reason why it means so much to me to be behind the campaign is that I believe every child has to pursue their dreams and goals. If we cannot defeat this pandemic, and if a person with a platform like me doesn’t encourage my audience to wash their hands, then we’d have a generation not taking this pandemic seriously.”

With President Cyril Ramaphosa instructing civilians to stay at home during the lockdown, Yanga shared the significance of doing their part.

“It’s very important to stay at home. This pandemic is a matter of life and death. There’s no other reason why the government is telling us to stay home to save our lives. It’s important to adhere to this call.”
