Olopade, who is now in Lagos disclosed this in a video he shared on social media that he promised to make the result of his coronavirus test public.
He said, “A few days ago, I did a video where I said I tested for Covid-19 and expecting the result, I did promise to make it public once that is done. It has come back now a couple of hours ago and I tested positive for Covid-19. As you all know, it’s not a death sentence, it;s not the end of the world. I feel no symptoms, I feel great and healthy”.
