The singer also shared his harrowing experience while battling with the virus and revealed that he will do his final test tomorrow to know if he is free of the virus.


He said, “I cannot wait for tomorrow to do my final test, so if they declare me free of the virus, I know that I am free.

“Guys stay safe out there. If you see me and want to hug me and I push you away, do not be angry. I’m not ‘forming celebrity’. Let’s learn to greet from afar.

He continued, “There is nothing worse than this illness. I understand when you are ill and feeling pain. The usual pain is headache, high temperature, dizziness. But when it has to do with the inability to breathe, that experience I do not want to experience it again. That is the worst part of the illness.

“Also, you will have a memory loss. Please be careful out there,” the singer added.
