The Let It Rain singer, in his comments, was sure that Mrs Gates did not know her figures about the global infection rate of the coronavirus. This is because, America, Mrs Gates' home country, was leading the world in terms of the number of infected persons.
It is also a fact that America has surpassed the whole world in relation to the number of mortalities owing to the growing threat posed by the coronavirus.
Sonnie Badu asked Mrs Gates to keep quiet and not meddle in the affairs of Africa because to him, he was sure, "Africa will surprise the world" regarding this pandemic.
