Coronavirus music: Nigerian-born Tommy Kuti raps about Covid-19 from Italy

Rapper Tommy Kuti is using his time in lockdown to write music with an important message.

Born in Nigeria, he lives in Italy, where more than 21,000 people have died from coronavirus.

Worried for his family back in Nigeria, he’s using rap to urge his fellow Africans to stay safe by staying home.
