Maria Benjamin tests positive for covid in Ghana


Maria Benjamin, the ex-housemate of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show, says she has tested positive for COVID-19.

In a post via her Instagram page on yesterday disclosed that she got to know about her COVID-19 diagnosis when she arrived in Ghana from Dubai.

“Unfortunately, I have tested positive to COVID-19 but I can assure you I’m doing really well,” she wrote.

“I initially had a negative result from Dubai less than 24 hours of coming into Ghana. Upon arrival in Ghana, I tested positive. Please do not take covid for granted and don’t try to be as stubborn as me.

“I’ve been placed in the best possible care and receiving treatment. I will be in Ghana until I am fully recovered.”

Maria was in the news recently over an alleged affair with Kelvin Anene, the husband to Maryanne Onyinyechi Obi, the sister of Cubana Chiefpriest, the Nigerian nightlife promoter.

A petition to which Kelvin was asked to respond alluded to certain allegations over which his wife sought a divorce.
