“I am terrified, I am scared but I am willing to play my part. I am willing to stay at home for 21 days to make sure that people are safe, that I’m safe, that my family is safe. We all need to play our part, that is the only way we can survive this. Let’s play as a unit, let's respect each rule that has been given, please. Let us cooperate. I urge each and everyone to do that and I know and I’m certain that in no time we can defeat this but it depends on us whether we play together if we listen, if we do as we’ve been told. 

"I wish you guys all the best, please keep safe, be home, do whatever you’ve been wanting to do, spend time with your kids and family. Do those things that you’ve been wanting to do. This is the time to do that and let’s be positive about it.”

IOL and MyFanPark, the platform where people can get personalised video messages from celebrities, has enlisted the help of some of South Africa's most well-loved personalities to come together to celebrate the courageous individuals on the frontlines of the pandemic, and to uplift and inspire those at home.
