Meanwhile, a mother who appeared to have been tired of being worried by her son decided to give him a task of counting a bowl of rice so she can have time to rest amid the lockdown exercise.
The video was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Celebritiesbuzzgh and it is not clear the exact location where it was recorded.
In the video, the mother carefully instructed the young innocent boy to use the counting skills he was taught in class to execute the task for her whilst she goes to the room and "lies down" waiting for him.
