Marlon Roudette shared on Wednesday (Jan. 27) via Facebook that he had tested positive for COVID-19.

The British-Vincentian artist in a video sharing his experience, informed that he arrived in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) back in November to spend time with his mother, Vonnie Roudette – a local artist.

“Got a flight from Switzerland to London… London to Barbados… Barbados to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where I checked into Young Island Resort for my five day quarantine.”

The Big City Life singer revealed that his PCR tests when leaving Switzerland and upon arrival in SVG were both negative. However, he tested positive at the end of his five days in quarantine, during clearance testing.

“I ended up spending a couple of weeks at the hotel waiting for my negative results to come through. Fortunately, I only had mild symptoms of Covid and I feel very blessed that I was able to recover quickly in the heat, in the warm air.”

The artiste shared that he kept himself busy with yoga, music, songwriting and reading, noting that it was a time of reflection.

Roudette took the opportunity to commend the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO).

“Big shout out to NEMO, the disaster preparedness department that’s responsible for tackling the situation. They work incredibly hard to keep everyone safe, too keep the numbers down.”

“The more gratitude that I put out there, the more blessings that I seem to receive,” Roudette concluded, noting that would be his motto for 2021.
