Ugandan artists have in two different collaborations released songs sensitizing masses on precautions they have to take to stop the spread of COVID19 that has left the whole world living in fear.


Vinka, Azawi and Bebe Cool teamed up on ‘Corona distance’ while Bobi Wine and Nubian Lee collaborated for ‘Corona alert’ as Felista di Superstar also released another one tittled 'Coronavirus'


Uganda has so far confirmed a total of 9 cases compared to Rwanda’s 40 and Kenya’s 25.


“The bad news is that everyone is a potential victim but the good news is that everyone is a potential solution,” says Bobi Wine as he introduces the song.


“Every effort must be marshalled to sensitize the masses on how to keep safe from COVID19. In that spirit, Hon Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) & Nubian Li have released this song,” People Power spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi captioned the partial video of the two in studio recording the said song.

‘Corona distance’ mainly emphasises social distancing while ‘Coronavirus alert’ focuses on vigilance.

On the other hand, Felista Da Supersta warns that the disease is dangerous and so shouldn't be taken lightly.

“Don’t hug me, keep the corona distance because we have to fight this tough disease,” Bebe Cool starts the song off because verses from Swangz Avenue’s Vinka and new kid on the block Azawi.

This as the country continues to take all the possible measures to fight the spread of the fast moving virus.
