Comedian Tiny Mutali has asked the County Government of Bungoma to involve local artists in the anti-Covis-19 awareness.
Speaking to Wakajauness after releasing his New Coronavirus song on Saturday, the high-flying comedian who relays his online content through the Bukusu language said artists have great following and involving them in the awareness will benefit the society.
“Most local artists have many followers and are struggling to use their little resources to finance their public awareness programmes on the pandemic,” said Choffuri in a telephone interview.
“If we are given enough support by the County Government, then the message will reach a wider community in efforts to paralyze this Coronavirus.”
The artist, who is also the founder of Engo Episodes under BG Woods Films also promised to use his role in the society to sensitize the community against Coronavirus.
So far, the artist has already produced a couple of hilarious clips that not only entertain but also educate the society on the dangers of the virus and how to protect one’s self from the infection.
His latest production was the Coronavirus New Version song featuring Prince Jabal. The audio was released yesterday.
This comes barely a week after another popular local trio Steve Kay of Wambumuli Dynamics, Storm (DwarChild) and Barsil Vishindoh also released another awareness son on the same pandemic.
Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati had stated on a local TV channel that the County will use part of the Sh100 million emergency kitty for Coronavirus awareness.
The governor mentioned that part of the money will go to pay allowances for MCAs during their training.
Other artists expected to join the awareness include Chris Kanya of Nenawe, actress and model Nekesa Khalayi, Lawida Leche, among others.
Kenya has so far recorded 129 cases of Coronavirus with 4 deaths and 4 recoveries.
