The devastating effects of coronavirus globally have led to some celebrities and organizations donating food items and money to those who are in need so as to help them stay indoors.
This benevolent gesture by well-resourced individuals has led to many fans calling on their celebs and icons to also come to their aid in these times of hardships to curtail their suffering.
The CEO of VRMG and multiple award winner, Edem together with his wife Stayce, has recently donated food to some security personnel and gave cash to about 30 fans who follow him on Twitter.

Speaking exclusively in a celebrity interview with Amansan Krakye of Radio Central in Cape Coast, Edem was asked if there is unnecessary pressure on them by fans to donate beyond their means, he said;
“If you are a celebrity and you don’t have money right now don’t donate to anybody. You can’t give what you don’t have and suffer in silence whilst you’re hailed publicly”
“If you have 10cedis and you’ll give someone 1cedi and still be alive it’s better because when you die there will be no one to depend on so it’s better you stay alive and carry more people on your shoulder”
“Everybody should do their little. It doesn’t have to do with only celebrities because if you have a neighbour who needs gari and you have some give them to help them stay home to avoid the spread of coronavirus”.
Edem entreated people not to take the pandemic as a mere story because well-developed countries are even battling with how to control COVID-19 and its concomitant effects.
