Three celebrities who attended the recently held Africa Magic Viewers' Choice Awards are seriously sick but have refused to be quarantined, according to investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo.

Recall that the Lagos State Government earlier this week put out a statement asking everyone who attended the event to self-isolate after someone who attended the event tested positive for the virus.

The news about the AMVCA attendees being exposed to the infection has caused some panic, as there were thousands of people in attendance.

Now, controversial media personality, Kemi, has revealed that a presenter, a winner and a nominee at the awards are sick but are refusing to be quarantined.

Kemi made this known on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, when she called on the Federal Ministry of Health to act fast so as to avoid a situation like the one in Italy.

She wrote: "@NCDCgov @Fmohnigeria @FAAN_Official @LSMOH PLEASE AVOID us ending up like Italy or New York! Pls, notify Multichoice to write #AMVCA2020 attendees. There are THREE movie stars who are very sick now and are totally refusing Quarantine! A winner, a presenter and a nominee."

Moments later, she broke the news of the death of the actor, Matt Alkali, whom she alleges was exposed to someone with the coronavirus. Alkali is said to have died on set after he slumped, with his family claiming that he died of other issues and not coronavirus.
