On March 14, 2020, the annual Africa Magic Viewer’s Award (AMVCA)  held at Eko hotel and celebrities all over Nigeria and abroad were  present.

However, this held days after two cases of coronavirus in Nigeria were announced.

After weeks of speculations, it has been revealed by the Honourable  Commissioner for Health of Lagos State, Professor Akin Abayomi that all  participants that attended the event may have come in contact with one  of the confirmed cases in Lagos and most likely been exposed to the  coronavirus.

Nigerians react to this news on twitter. Find the reactions below:

Only gone out to get fuel and food since I found out about AMVCA. Because I really have no choice in that matter.

Prior to the 14th of March on which the AMVCA held, Nigeria had two confirmed cases of the coronavirus.
That should have been enough reason to postpone the event!

This is not even the case of just AMVCA.
There was an after party and I can bet most of the celebrities entered clubs that same night!

In fact everyone at Eko hotel that night were exposed.#COVID19NIGERIA #AMVCA2020

They should just forget about contact tracing in lagos. If this Amvca gist is true because it is game over niyen.

Just lock down the state and test every body

After AMVCA there was after party,  most of the attendees went clubbing, so many contacts, how many people  will be honest enough to come forward?
