Zimdancehall chanter Seh Calaz over the weekend received his first Covid-19 vaccine in Harare.
Boss Yala, as the chanter is fondly known, said he took a giant step to motivate fellow musicians and fans to follow suit in a bid to combat the virus.
“I have decided to take the jab because it’s the right thing to do.
“Worldwide people are being vaccinated against Covid-19 and it’s our best shot at bringing the pandemic under control.
“A lot of things, including our livelihoods have been disrupted by the pandemic and to remain to normalcy we need to have as many people as possible to get vaccinated,” he said.
Asked about the feeling after he got his first vaccine, he said:
“I feel totally fine, no side effects whatsoever.
” People will always react to medication differently but there is nobody i have heard of who took the vaccine and has serious side effects.”
“I urge people to stop spreading fake and conspiracy theories with no basis.
“This is what is stopping a lot of people from getting vaccinated.
“We must rely on the science, we all want the pandemic to end and hence we have a responsibility when it comes to what we do as well as what we say.”
Boss Yala also said his studio Yalanation is open for recording for both upcoming and seasoned artistes.
“As Yalanation we are giving upcoming artistes an opportunity to showcase their talents.
“Its open for every one and we want to shape the society with good music which i believe will improve the mindset of Zimbabweans.
“We also need to continue observing all Covid-19 precautions.”
