Davido into self-isolation as partner tests positive for virus

Ace Nigerian music star David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, says he has decided to go into self-isolation as his fiancée, Chioma, has tested positive to the coronavirus.

Newsmen report that Davido disclosed this in a series of tweets on Friday evening on his verified Twitter handle.

The “Assurance” crooner explained that the duo recently returned to Nigeria from their foreign trips without symptoms.

They, however, decided to take the COVID-19 test alongside close associates.

He said: “I came back recently from America after cancelling (my) tour.

“My fiancée Chioma also came back from London recently with our baby.

“We had no symptoms and still both feel perfectly fine but because of our recent travel history, we decided to take ourselves and our close associates we’ve come in recent contact with for the COVID-19 test on the 25th of March.

“Unfortunately, my fiancée’s result came back positive while all 31 others tested negative, including our baby.

“We are however doing perfectly fine and she is even still yet to show any symptoms whatsoever.

“She is now being quarantined and I have also gone into full self-isolation for the minimum 14 days.

“I want to use this opportunity to thank you all for your endless love and prayers in advance and to urge everyone to please stay at home as we control the spread of this virus.

“Together we can beat this.”

Davido and Chioma are now the first Nigerian celebrities to confirm and publicly declare their status in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
