On Friday, 27 March 2020 recording artiste and entertainer Davido revealed that his fiancee and mother of his child, Chioma Rowland has tested positive for Coronavirus.
Davido had earlier suspended his US tour due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He informed the world through his social media platform on Twitter that he had recently returned from the United States of America after cancelling his tour, and his fiancee who was in the United Kingdom with their baby came back from London.
He alleged that although they both had no symptoms, they decided to get tested because of their travels, and when the results came back, though his and the baby’s were negative, Chioma’s came back positive. To this end fans and well wishers wished her speedy recovery and a good outcome. Davido has said he has now gone into self-isolation.
Coronavirus has been spreading at a fast rate and governments around the world are now putting in place lockdown measures to break transmission and flatten the curve. Nigeria’s index case was brought into the country by an Italian living and working in Nigeria who was returning to Nigeria from his home country. Since then there has been an increase in confirmed Coronavirus cases in the country.
