Nigerian comedian Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome professionally known as Ali Baba has taken to Instagram to reveal that he contracted Covid-19 and just got out of isolation.
The veteran laugh master in a video he shared told his followers about his experience and also urged everyone to continue to stay safe as covid-19 is real.
According to him, he spent Christmas and the New Year at the hospital. The comedian went on to remind others that Doctors, Pastors, Professors, billionaires and even the poor have all died of covid-19.
He captioned the shared video:
COVID is real.
Don’t let anyone tell you it’s a scam. I just came out of isolation. Several people died while I was there. Some of my close friends knew and they were very supportive.
I thank the Lagos State governor @jidesanwoolu and the commissioner for health, the MD of the COVID CENTRE in YABA, the Doctors, especially Dr Nifemi, who are risking their lives to keep us alive. Thanks to all the nurses.
I want to thank @gbengaadeyinka1stgcon… you are a good friend. @margaretorakwusi@maryamuwai@itsifeanyi and friends to go checked up on me.
COVID is real. Observe all the protocols.
People are dying. And it’s not a joke
In fact, anyone who says COVID is a scam is a compound idiot and a fool.
