Nigerian Instagram humorist Sydney Egere otherwise called Sydney Talker has shouted out to the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
This is coming as the famous comic uncovered that he is demonstrating side effects of the novel coronavirus and should be tried.
Prior, a video had circulated around the web of Talker attempting to alarm the NCDC of his basic condition yet the NCDC by means of it’s Twitter page uncovered it was a skit.
As per the NCDC Twitter handler, they connected the person who was said to be sick yet he has reacted saying he is well.
The tweet reads:
“We received several messages & calls, over an Instagram video. The individual was said to be very sick & reported that NCDC did not respond.
“We have reached out to him and he said what he did was a SKIT. He is well.”
The NCDC urged people not to spread panic.
In response to the tweet, the comedian refuted the NCDC’s claim that he is well. He wrote:
“What kind of lie is this???😭😡 you didn’t reach out to me and I wasn’t doing a skit. Please all I want is to be tested because the symptoms get worse by the day”
Following the popular comedian’s response, many of his fans and Nigerians alike flooded social media to ask the NCDC to test the comedian.
