Popular Nigerian singer, Peter Okoye, has made a stunning revelation about himself and his family.

The musician, this afternoon, revealed that himself, his wife Lola and their daughter Aliona, tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.

In a video he posted on Instagram, Peter said he was the one who first tested positive with the virus.

He said:

”For the past three weeks, I have been ill and most people didn’t even know what was wrong with me. I kept it to myself. It has been three weeks of hell for me and my family.

“I had COVID19 for about three weeks and it happened to me.

“I was sick and I tested positive.

“The reason why I came out to say it is because I am going to encourage a lot of people concerning this whole social distancing, getting used to sanitizing your hands, disinfecting your environment, wearing your face mask and all that.

“It’s been hell for this family in this house. Not just me. Even two of my domestic staff.

“After a week, my daughter caught the virus as well. It was sad that when she caught it, the doctor insisted that she has to be self isolated in her own room but my wife did something very courageous. She said no.

“I was sick and I was being self-isolated in my guest room. I couldn’t even see my sick daughter and I was feeling so bad. I felt so bad because I felt that I am the one who actually brought the virus to the house. It was so bad that I had to be calling her on video, checking on her.

“The next day, my wife did someting very courageous. She picked our daughter from her room, held her and took her to the master bedroom and she called me and she started crying. I asked her what happened and she said I cannot live this girl alone. I would rather be infected and be with her.

“Five or six days later, my daughter was pronounced negative. When she was pronounced negative, we knew it wasn’t going to end there. The next day, Lola became positive. It has been hell but we had a bad experience.

“I just want to tell everybody that this COVID19 is real. Don’t take it for granted.

“I am happy to announce that my wife, myself, our daughter and two of our domestic staff all of us are now negative” he said

Popular Nigerian singer, Abolore Adigun better known as 9ice, has stated that contrary to popular opinion, he never promised his fans to win a Grammy award for them.

In an interview with Reporters, the singer said:

“People are getting it wrong. I didn’t promise anyone a Grammy award; I promised myself. I promised myself a lot of things. I promised myself a Music of Black Origin award and I got it.”

I promised myself to be one of the most reckoned with artistes and I’ve achieved that”.

The Grammy-award has been one of my targets as well. There is a Yoruba adage that says, ‘Ba o Ku, ise o tan’ which literally means, ‘If there is life, anything can still happen.”

I’m still doing music and who says I cannot get it (Grammy award) tomorrow? I still have that belief and I know God will do it for me.”
