If U attended #AMVCA2020 and a V.I nightclub last weekend PLS #StayHome at least 7-14 days and #selfquarantine urself. Fever, chills, coughing, sneezing pls get tested, wear mask and stay safe. Isolate yourself, wash hands and pls Celebrities DON’T CALL ME!
under HIPAA laws. I CANNOT mention the sex. If you visited a popular V.I nightclub this past weekend Friday to Sunday get tested if you feel sick. Call @NCDCgov hotline 08000CORONA and #isolate ASAP.”

“This gist going around about someone with Coronavirus attending the AMVCA 2020 is crazy. .especially as this person allegedly came in with most of the stars. DIRECT CONTACT.
Please if you attended the event,quarantine yourself at once and call everyone U have been with to also do same before we have a Coronavirus emergency in Nigeria ….. if I finish investigating this and I am sure who it is I will announce their name. There is no need shielding anyone and anyone who does it s a wicked person.”
