COVID-19: Comedian Funnybone threatens to sue photographer for attending AMVCA while sick

Standup comedian, Funnybone has threatened to sue a photographer who attended the recently staged Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) despite testing positive for COVID-19.

The humour merchant took to his official Instagram page late on Sunday to call out the attendee who arrived from London sick and still decided to attend the award ceremony despite knowing the state of his health.

Reacting further, Funnybone said that he had been inundated with calls from family members and close friends who were seeking to find out about his health condition knowing that he attended the event.

The comedian wrote on Instagram; “14days after Amvca and I kept getting calls from family and friends asking me the same question, Stanley hope you are good? Are you coughing? Well, I am not showing any symptoms yet and I won’t by his grace. I did the test and it came out NEGATIVE. So family I am well, alive and safe. Stay safe and be safe.

“Meanwhile, before I forget oga SEUN who arrived from London sick and yet decided to turn up for AMVCA. Please get well soon o and recover fast if nobody will. I will personally sue you to court. But first get well soon you hear,” he added.

The comments by Funnybone comes after the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, last Tuesday, charged those who attended the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) 2020 held on March 14, to embark on self-isolation.

The commissioner said it was necessary for the individuals concerned to self-isolate as they may have come in contact with a person who had tested positive for COVID-19.

He urged them to contact health workers should they notice any Coronavirus-related symptoms.
