Gospel musician, Celestine Donkor, has disclosed she tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), but has recovered.
Celestine, who revealed this on Hitz FM on Wednesday while speaking about her decision to feature singer Efya and Akwaboah on her latest song titled Thank You, indicated that she almost lost her life.
“I actually wish the entire nation and even the world can just connect together and sing this song because God has done a lot for us in the year 2020 COVID-19 season …I had COVID-19 and I know what it means. I had it. I almost died Andy. I can’t say this but I have recovered. So yes, I know what it means to survive COVID-19. And so I shouldn’t be selfish and just sing the song myself and I was seriously led to bring other musicians on board,” she told host Andy Dosty.
“The reason why I called Efya is that I heard rumours from this prophecy from Prophet Nigel Gaisie that she won’t see the end of 2020; she was going to die. So it was strong in my spirit that there is no one who will express thanksgiving than someone who had been prophesied to die. So I felt Efya’s voice can express this thanksgiving song better,” she added.
Millions of people have died worldwide as a result of COVID-19.
Celestine is the first Ghanaian music personality to come public about contracting the deadly virus and subsequently recovering.
TV and radio personality, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku, was the first Ghanaian showbiz personality to come public that she had contracted the virus and also recovering. She didn’t just come public, but also used her platforms to sensitise her followers to follow protocols so as to stem the spread of the virus.
