Luther Campbell, popularly known as Uncle Luke, has joined the growing list of hip-hop artists who have contracted the coronavirus.

In an editorial printed on Miami Times, the legendary rapper, who has been a strict adherer to the coronavirus guidelines by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, such as wearing masks every time he would go out, opened up about how he contracted the dreaded virus, with the hope that others will learn from his experience.

He explained that he got infected with the virus after bowing to pressure from his friend to join his birthday party.

“Last month, a friend celebrating his birthday at a local strip club would not stop blowing up my phone. He kept begging me to come. I told myself I would go in for 15 minutes and duck out. As soon as I walked through the doors, it was like stepping into a coronavirus-spreading chamber,” he recounted. “Everybody was wildin’ out and getting drunk.”

He added that “Almost no one was wearing masks. My buddies were all up in my face. Patrons and strippers were walking up to me and asking to take selfies. Of course, I obliged when they asked me to take my mask off. Even though I felt like everyone in the club was an asymptomatic carrier, I stayed late.”

Uncle Luke said his health deteriorated gradually after he felt sick shortly after the party. He first had a dry cough, but he dismissed it as seasonal allergies. And when he lost his appetite, he assumed it was just a stomach virus. But when he lost his sense of smell and taste, he knew it was time to get tested. After taking two tests, his fears were confirmed. He was positive for COVID-19.

He went on to advise people on how they can protect themselves and the greater public during this holiday season.

“If you go out, put your mask on when you are not drinking or eating,” he said. “You don’t have to be all up on each other, either. You can still hang out at a six-foot distance from each other. And if the establishment has too many people not following the protocols, don’t be afraid to go home and call it a night.”
