Nairobi County Senator Johnson Sakaja and his two sons on Saturday March 28 excited a lot of Kenyans on Twitter after posting their coronavirus rap song.

In the 57 seconds rap video, which has since gone viral, the Senator encouraged Kenyans to stay safe and comply with the government’s directives in a bid to avoid further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

While putting on caps like most rappers, Sajaka is seen using his hands to make beats by drumming on the table as the three kick off the song by introducing themselves by name.

They start rapping and say, “we came plugged in like a charger na kuna venye tunataka kutaja, cause corona has become larger than the NIC-CBA merger.”

The song stated the importance of social distancing and washing hands with soap and water; some of the directives given by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in preventing the spread of the disease.

They also urged Kenyans to implement the 7pm to 5am curfew put in place by the government.

On Saturday, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe announced seven new coronavirus cases in the country, bringing the total to 38.

“All the 7 cases are from Nairobi County…this now puts Nairobi County as leading with 28 cases of those who have so far turned positive; Kilifi has 6, Mombasa has 2, while Kajiado and Kwale have one each,” said Kagwe.

Kenyans took to the comments section and applauded the legislator and his two sons for finding a creative and entertaining way to pass the message to citizens.
