He, like many other celebrities, has encouraged people to use this time to take stock of themselves.

He wrote: "This is the time to take stock in your life and encourage yourself in the things you succeeded in achieving, then build on it... God encouraged Himself in creation, 'Let there be, and it was. And He approved it... He saw it was Good.' Before the 7th day comes.

As of Friday, the country will go on a complete shutdown in an effort to combat the spread of the coronavirus, which has thus far infected over 700 people.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Monday that everyone should stay home for 21 days until a way forward is mapped to deal with the outbreak of the virus.
