A guest who attended the African Magic Viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA) 2020 has tested positive for coronavirus, the Lagos State Ministry of Health (LSMOH) has confirmed.
This comes after a journalist caused a stir on social media after alleging that “a big Nigerian celebrity” with the virus had attended the award ceremony, which happened on March 14.
Kemi Olulunyo also claimed that the attendee visited an undisclosed night club in Victoria Island over the weekend, and issued a warning to patrons to self-isolate immediately due to possible exposure to the virus.
The LSMOI in a statement Tuesday said: “participants may have come in contact with one of the confirmed cases in Lagos and are most likely to have been exposed to #COVID19 Infection.”
Attendees have therefore been advised to self-isolate to prevent the spread of the virus.
