Here is what she stated;


“I hardly fall ill and so when I left the set and started having chills the next day or so, I knew something wasn’t right.

I thought it might be stress.

This was on Monday, August 3. I waited till Tuesday and it got worse.

I was shaking uncontrollably and my temperature was going through the roof.”

“My spirit told me immediately, this is not malaria or fever.

I have been extremely careful and paranoid about this COVID-19 stuff.

So I told hubby I needed to be tested immediately. I have a son that has Asthma!”



“They came to test me on Wednesday and my result came out on Thursday evening … Positive.

My world crashed. I felt crazy and empty.”


Meanwhile, Omotola said her biggest worry at the moment is the movie industry, adding that COVID-19 is real.
“Please this thing is real and we must come together to find the safest way to work and protect ourselves,” the actress added.
