South Africa fights “Covid 19” with a song for Makeba


To help spread health advice during the pandemic of the Coronavirus, South Africa has reintroduced a classic song by famous anti-apartheid singer, Myriam Makeba.

The new version of the song, “Bata Bata”, recorded by the award-winning singer Angelic Kidjo and released by UNICEF, includes tips on staying home, washing hands and keeping a distance from others, according to Deutsche Press Agency.
