Paul Okoye, a member of the now-defunct music group, P-Square has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Paul made the revelation via his official Instagram handle on Tuesday.
The singer further warned Nigerians to accept that coronavirus is real and obey all health guidelines. He wrote:
“ATTENTION!!! Fck it !!! Covid is REAL !!! I know as typical Nigerian or African is very hard to believe, some will say “experience is the best teacher, oh well, the experience and the teacher has visited me and they’ve been dealing with me for more than 10days now, sht is not funny ….. worst sickness ever!!! …… y’all better be careful out there, if you like believe me, if you like don’t, believe me, you can as well wait for your own experience by playing ignorance Goodluck God help us all.”
Paul Okoye’s illness is coming a few months after his twin brother Peter and his family were affected by the novel virus, The Guardian said.
There have been several warnings to Nigerians to take the virus seriously and avoid crowded places. A warning which has constantly been neglected as many keep attending parties.
It has been advised by medical practitioners to always use masks, hand sanitizer, and continually wash their hands while avoiding unnecessary movements.
