Rita Wilson has proven to be the embodiment of a famous African proverb, Wathinta umfazi, wathinta imbhokodo (you strike a woman, you strike a rock).
Two weeks after she and her hubby Tom Hanks tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), she has come out as strong as ever.
Well, at least that is the impression that she left on us when she recorded herself losing it to Naughty by Nature’s Hip-Hop Hooray classic hit.
Watch: Rita Wilson raps along to Naughty by Nature
While Rita Wilson and Hanks are yet to confirm their health status with the public, it appears that they have fast-tracked their road to recovery.
The lung capacity needed to rap along to the fast-paced and hard-hitting lyrics of Naughty by Nature would not suffice for a coronavirus patient.
This is most certainly an improvement from what Hanks had described in his big reveal on Instagram two weeks ago.
“Hello folks, Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired like we had colds, and some body aches. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the coronavirus and were found to be positive,” the Hollywood star wrote.
“We will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. We’ll keep the world posted and updated,” he added.
The world has banded together to wish Rita Wilson and other patients battling the deadly pathogen well. However, in Africa, a star was lost.
86-year-old jazz icon Manu Dibango lost his fight to coronavirus at a Paris hospital on Tuesday. The news was confirmed by his longtime friend and music publisher, Thierry Durepaire.
“His funeral service will be held in strict privacy, and a tribute to his memory will be organized when possible,” a statement published on the late musician’s Facebook page read.
