South Africans are currently forbidden from leaving their homes except to seek medicine or medical care, buy food and supplies or collect a social grant. The sale of alcohol and cigarettes is also prohibited.
So how does the lead singer of a South African band The Kiffness spend his time in lockdown? Updating classic songs for the corona era of course!
David Scott has turned a clip of President Cyril Ramaphosa demonstrating a ‘Covid-19 safe’ elbow greeting into a viral video set to a spoof of The Knack’s track My Sharona called My Corona.
He’s also rewritten the lyrics to Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline (Sweet Corona), the Plain White T’s Hey There Delilah (Hey There Corona) and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody (Lockdown Rhapsody).
Scott’s other spoof is a lockdown acappella version of The Beatles’ hit Yesterday.
