Africa’s top Afropop star, Peter Okoye stage-named Mr P (of the defunct Psquare group of two) disclosed he and his family members tested positive for coronavirus.
He said he had been ill for about a month and may people were oblivious of his illness.
He is said to have recovered from the virus during an Instagram live video.
The report indicated that his wife Lola Omotayo, his daughter Aliona, as well as two of his domestic staff, had contracted the virus earlier this month.
He made the infection a private matter whilst his family was distressed for almost a month.
He described the incident as ‘HELLISH’ for his family revealing his daughter caught the virus a week after him and that saddened him.
The doctor treating them insisted that the young girl should self-isolate in her own room but Lola courageously rejected the advice.
In his words: 3“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 something 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 am happy to announce that my wife, myself, our daughter and two of our domestic staff all of us are now negative.”
