Afro-soul musician Berita has been using the lockdown to make more music on her guitar, get back on track with her healthy eating habits and spend more time in the sun. And like most of us, she’s also taking more self-portraits and taking part in social-media challenges.
The 29-year-old Ndicel’ikiss singer walks us through her daily lockdown routine.
I wake up at . . . “I try to wake up early and at the same time everyday so I can keep a healthy routine for my body and mind.”
First thing you do after waking up? “I exercise, pray then journal.”
What you eat for breakfast, lunch, supper . . . “I am trying to eat healthy. I am eating lots of fibre such as oats, brown rice, brown bread, lots of vegetables and fruit.”

Eating more or still controlling your diet? “I am making a conscious decision to eat healthier so I can boost my immune system. I am also taking vitamin C and B complex every day.”
Between meals . . . “I am taking it one day at a time. I am using the time to get all my backend admin in place, as well as taking more time to work on my guitar.”
Watchlist? “I like to watch documentaries and educational videos on YouTube.”
Bedtime? “I try go to bed early, say 10pm. I have been very disciplined about this so that I don’t upset my body clock.
“It’s been a difficult time. It is very uncertain, especially for us artists as we won’t be performing live onstage anytime soon. Some days are more challenging than others, however I am trying my best to keep a positive attitude. I believe all will be well soon.”
