Kaybee's decision comes after the virus was declared a pandemic on Wednesday by the World Health Organisation (WHO). 

“Covid-19 can be characterised as a pandemic,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on the organisation's social media platforms.

Not only did Kaybee cancel his performance in Turkey, but he's been taking precautions by wearing a black “leather-like” mask when travelling.

The DJ is not the only celeb taking the virus seriously. Actor Siv Ngesi also weighed in on the topic.

He urged South Africans to take the outbreak seriously now that it has been declared a pandemic.

“We make jokes, but our country is in such trouble! We are so f**ked! But those who put us here are walking around free.”

Musician Busiswa, on the other hand, was amused there was a whole amapiano song about the virus.

“We have a Corona dance. It has an Amapiano soundtrack ... and we're getting together in large crowds and small spaces [clubs] to do it while screaming 'corrronaaaa'. SA is special guys. Hhaybo South Aah!”
