Veteran Nigerian musician, Mike Okri, has contracted COVID-19. The musician got infected with the virus despite being fully vaccinated.

He disclosed this via Facebook Live on Saturday, August 21. Okri who recently returned home after decades abroad said he caught the virus on Friday, August 20, a day before he was due to travel.

According to him, he felt “devastated” and “funny” and had gone into self-isolation at home for 10 or 14 days.


“Hey folks, this is coming to me as a rude shock. I had my Covid test on Friday, hoping to fly today, Saturday and it turned out it was positive. I’m so devastated, which means that I can’t travel for another 10 to 14 days. As I’m speaking now, I’m self-quarantined.

“I just want to tell folks that yes, for those doubting Thomases, that the damn thing is real.

“I’m feeling funny; even though I had my vaccines, double shots, I’m still almost like, hmm, that doesn’t mean that you’re immune.

“So, folks, there are a lot of people walking around with it, but they don’t even know,”he said.

Okri is a celebrated Nigerian musician who won several awards in the 80s and 90s including the Nigerian Music Awards (NMA) and Fame Music Awards (FMA).

He was known for hit songs such as ‘Rhumba Dance’, ‘Time Na Money’, ‘Okpeke’, and many others.
