'Hey there! I have a message for you. Yes you. You know Corona Virus? It kills. It knows nobody, no class, no tribe, it will kill....but we can protect ourselves if we heed the messages...wash your hands, wear your mask when in public places, call 117 in case you have it... and together we will win this fight not just to beat Corona but for the future of our beloved country-Sierra Leone's development'... these are part of the lyrics to the song - "Corona Fet Na We All Fet', now the national COVID-19 theme song in Sierra Leone.
Praised by many to be the best COVID-19 social mobilization and risk communication song they have heard in the country (and elsehwere) so far, the COVID-19 theme song was developed to help boost awareness-raising on the pandemic and to help mobilize the nation. "The country loves these young men and women. They are very influencial and highly revered among our people so the idea was just right to have them join and lead the fight for their country". said Solomon Jamiru, National Spokes Person for the COVID-19 response and also the brains behind the development of the song.
