Popular Nigerian Musician and Songwriter, Peter Okoye has revealed how he,his wife and daughter battled with COVID-19 for three weeks.
Mr P has he is known revealed this via video on his verifed Instagram handle on Saturday.
Okoye said two of his domestic staffs also tested positive.
His words, “For weeks I was in prison in my own house. I was sick. I was COVID-19 positive. It took me a lot of courage to say this. I caught the virus.
He said ”For the past three weeks, I have been ill and most people didn’t even know what was wrong with me. I kept it to myself. It has been three weeks of hell for me and my family.
The reason why I came out to say it is because I am going to encourage a lot of people concerning this whole social distancing, getting used to sanitizing your hands, disinfecting your environment, wearing your face mask and all that.
After a week, my daughter caught the virus as well. It was sad that when she caught it, the doctor insisted that she has to be self-isolated in her own room but my wife did something very courageous. She said no.
“I was sick and I was being self-isolated in my guest room. I couldn’t even see my sick daughter and I was feeling so bad. I felt so bad because I felt that I am the one who actually brought the virus to the house. It was so bad that I had to be calling her on video, checking on her.
The next day, my wife did something very courageous. She picked our daughter from her room, held her and took her to the master bedroom and she called me and she started crying. I asked her what happened and she said I cannot live this girl alone. I would rather be infected and be with her.
“Five or six days later, my daughter was pronounced negative. When she was pronounced negative, we knew it wasn’t going to end there. The next day, Lola became positive. It has been hell but we had a bad experience.
“I used to think this whole virus thing was a joke and I took it for granted.”
“If you think this whole virus is fake or you don’t have anyone that you know, I am telling you now that it is real,” Okoye said.
The former P-square group member said he and his wife,daughter, nanny and cook have now tested negative after treatment.
