“One day at a time . . . I know so many of us are filled with anxiety right now. I have personally gone through so much in the last two years and the lesson I learnt through it all is that all we have is today . . . I know things are crazy right now. I wanna encourage all of you to remain focused on just living for today and IN the moment,” he said.

The star explained that his anxiety has become worse during the pandemic and that he's had to make a conscious effort to protect his peace. He encouraged his followers to remain focused on the present moment.

"I am no expert in any of these things that are going on but I am a human who every day wakes up with anxiety filled to the brim. Every morning I wake up and realise that I can still see that beautiful blue sky, I still have breath in my lungs, and I have so many beautiful souls around me who I can connect with,” he shared.

The singer emphasised that a certain perspective can help you deal with living through a global pandemic. And that in these trying times people must try to remain positive and be patient.

“Breathe. Don’t obsess over social media and all the negative news out there, specially right now. Perspective is EVERYTHING . . . stay home if you can and just be patient with this process.

The musician ended his post by advising followers not to bottle up their feelings.

“Sending you love and remember the most important thing is to TALK! Let your feelings out, if you [are] able too I recommend seeing a psychologist or talk to people you trust about your feelings! WE GONNA CONQUER!”

One day at a time ... I know so many of us are filled with anxiety right now. I have personally gone through so much in the last two years and the lesson I learnt through it all is that all we have is today ... I know things are crazy right now. I wanna encourage all of you to remain focused on just living for today and IN the moment. _ Breathe. Don’t obsess over social media and all the negative news out there, specially right now. Perspective is EVERYTHING ... stay home if you can and just be patient with this process. It cannot be an easy task to be a leader of a whole nation amidst global confusion and a pandemic of this size, but like the lesson I learnt when I went to Rwanda, If we all do our part then we make the world a better place. I encourage to enjoy and make the most of this time. Stay home and connect via the incredible abilities we have at our fingertips. _ I am no expert in ANY of these things that are going but I too am a human who everyday wakes up with anxiety filled to the brim and every morning I wake up and realize that I can still see that beautiful blue sky, I still have breath in my lungs, and I have so many beAutiful souls around me that I can connect with. _ Music is a healer and an escape ... I have placed our latest body of work in the link in my bio ... go chuck some headphones on and enjoy some music and BREATHE! _ Sending you love, and remember the most important thing is to TALK! Let your feelings out, if you able too I recommend seeing a psychologist (I know a phenomenal one who does online consultations - hit me up in DMs if you want the contact) or talk to people you trust about your feelings! WE GONNA CONQUER!! _ #WeMadeIt
