Sallam Sharaf, the manager of celebrated Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz, has recovered from coronavirus.
Sallam, who was diagnosed with the infection on March 19th, broke the news of his healing in a message posted on Instagram on Wednesday, April 1st.
“After 14 days got tested twice and both results came negative and now I am out of isolation center. Thanks to Allah. Thanks to doctor’s nurses and the government,” Sallam wrote.
