Ebuka Uchendu, Nigerian TV host, has asked Wizkid, Afrobeat singer, to put out what he described as quarantine music — in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Nigeria had recently confirmed five new cases of COVID-19, at a time when the global death toll from the disease had hit 9,000 with more than 200,000 infected across over 100 countries.
This has prompted authorities to restrict social gatherings and shutdown tertiary institutions as citizens who have tested positive are placed under quarantine to prevent further spread of virus.
Ebuka, while joining the fray of celebrities who have taken to social to urge for calm among citizens, asked Wizkid to put out a new song just as fans had long awaited the latter’s forthcoming ‘Made in Lagos’ album.

Ever since the coronavirus broke out in China, travel bans, restrictions, and advisories have continued to take effect to keep the disease at bay and this has greatly affected the showbiz industry.
Airlines and transportation companies worldwide have also been hit by the development, thereby forcing the cancellation of already sold out concerts alongside planned cinema released.
