Like some Christians, music producer Roro is of the view that coronavirus is increasing the intensity and frequency of events prophesied in the Bible which will lead to the end of the world, hence is entreating all to repent and save their souls.
He posits that the coronavirus outbreak as the beginning of worst things to happen in the world and it is imperative people changed from their evil ways or perish.

Until they feel the hell fire, they won’t believe anything… A time will come if you don’t have the mark of the beast which is the 666, you can’t sell, you can’t buy, you can’t do anything. This is preparing us to it.”
In Matthew 24: 4-8, Jesus while answering what will be the sign of His coming and of the end of the age said: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains."
