Oyogist.com has learned that Former Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Maria Chike Benjamin, on Wednesday revealed that she has been tested positive for COVID-19.
Maria announced this via her Instagram page where she also appreciated her fans for showing concern about her well-being.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Maria wrote, “My heartbeats, I heard you were all concerned about me. Thank you so much for all your kind messages. Unfortunately, I have tested positive to COVID-19 but I can reassure you, I am doing really well.”
The reality TV star also revealed the troubles she had during the tests, as the earlier results conflicted.
“I initially had a negative result from Dubai less than 24 hours of coming into Ghana. Upon arrival in Ghana, I tested positive and was asked to quarantine. I got a different doctor that tested me negative again. We had so many back and forth results of positives and negatives. But finally, I have tested positive,” Maria said.
“Please, do not take COVID-19 for granted, and don’t try to be as stubborn as myself always. I have been placed in the best possible care and receiving treatment. I will be in Ghana until I am fully recovered and tested negative. I love you all and cannot wait to get back to work”, she added.
