Ace Nigerian music producer Olumide Ogunade, professionally known as ID Cabasa, has waded into the heated debate about the skepticism surrounding the existence of the coronavirus in Nigeria and across the world.
ID Canada believes the novel coronavirus is very much real and has called on people of influence across every level of society to stop stating otherwise.
The music producer recently took to his Instagram page on Thursday, July 9, 2020, where he expressed concern at how the opinions of those with influence in regards to Covid-19 tend to rub off on the masses, regardless of whether they are right or wrong.
He then warned influencers not to air their feelings on Covid-19 if there are no facts to back it up.
He said: “You are influential and people will do without thinking whatever u say either in the right context or otherwise… And if there’s a strong conviction about what you feel please be clear so as not to confuse people.”

As intelligent and influential people, it will be discretional to be quiet and observe things as regards COVID-19 than building up theories around why? I don’t dispute what you feel or believe BUT if what u feel or belief has no FACTS backing it please be careful how you share these things u are feeling it is.. You are influential and people will do without thinking whatever u say either in the right context or otherwise… And if there’s a strong conviction about what you feel please be clear so as not to confuse people with what you have not said(Which can be insinuated from what you said) Someone said there’s no COVID-19 and all she could quote was a top MOG… and I am like “Did he ever say there is no Covid? Then she started saying everything is a hoax.. quoting theories upon theories…SMH.. 10mins after she called back panting and nearly crying that she just got a call that her younger brother was exposed to the virus….. Please let’s be careful people… This stuff is real.. Let’s trust God for a cure/prevention soon while we also do our part to prevent the spread… Those who caught d virus already we pray God heal them
More than five hundred thousand people have died of coronavirus worldwide, according to official count at the time of this report – with Nigeria recording 684 deaths.
