Famous Nigerian singer David Adeleke, aka Davido, has revealed that his fiancée, Chioma, tested positive for coronavirus, via his verified Instagram account on Friday evening.
According to Davido, “I came back recently from America after cancelling (my) tour. My fiancée Chioma also came back from London recently with our baby.
“We had no symptoms and still both feel perfectly fine but because of our recent travel history, we decided to take ourselves and our all close associates we’ve come in recent contact with for the COVID-19 test on the 25th of March.
“Unfortunately, my fiancée’s result came back positive while all 31 others tested negative including our baby. We are however doing perfectly fine and she is even still yet to show any symptoms whatsoever. She is now being quarantined and I have also gone into full self-isolation for the minimum 14 days. I want to use this opportunity to thank you all for your endless love and prayers in advance and to urge everyone to please stay at home as we control the spread of this virus. Together we can beat this.”
Nigerians have since went agog after the news broke on social media, and below are some of the reactions of Nigerians to this news:
Davido’s Chioma is tested positive for Covid 19, This is disheartening , what is the assurance I don’t have or you don’t have too because some of us have not done test, please I think this is the right time for all of us to stay at home and isolate ourself for 14 days…

I feel Davido & his crew were irresponsible, he cancelled all his shows in USA, he knew what was going on. Only to come back to Lagos and be travelling everywhere. Chioma got back too and was everywhere with him. God help the poor people that came in contact with them.

I have not been tested, even though i may have been exposed to a confirmed case at the AMVCA but Davido and 32 people, who have no symptoms( a criteria for getting tested) got tested?
I was simply told to self isolate and watch but Davido and 32 people got tested? https://t.co/yJEoOoq7HB

Mehn the rigging is too much!
Davido with his influence tested 32 asymtomatic people in this Nigeria while there are people with symptoms that have not been tested.
Y’all really need to be very very worried.

But hope the Davido news about him being Negative is so true and his Team because it was very not smart for him from a hot zone and back to Nigeria and moved to like 2states!
I hope it’s True.

Oh shit!! Davido’s fiancé, Chioma has tested positive for Covid-19 !
Apparently she’s not showing any symptoms but David has decided to go into isolation for 14 days.
They were all at Mayorkun’s crib for his birthday. The whole DMW crew needs to self isolate rn! No joke!!

Davido cancelled his US tour…came back from the US and had a show or 2 in Nigeria….that was some very selfish reckless move.

Chioma positive, Davido Negative, Their baby Negative, the rest of the crew, Negative.
Covid19 is the strangest virus in the history of mankind.
