Stanley Chibunna, Nigerian comedian better known as Funnybone, has threatened lawsuit against the individual who allegedly took the COVID-19 to the 2020 African Magic viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA).
The 2020 AMVCA left several dusts in its trail after a yet-to-be-named individual, who returned from the UK, had graced the event — after allegedly testing positive for the virus.
Reacting to the development, the gifted comedian vowed to take up legal action against the individual, which he referred to as “Seun”, for endangering the lives of others by his action.
Funnybone recounted how he was bugged by calls from family and well-wishers — after the 2020 AMVCA — who feared he might have been showing symptoms of the coronavirus.
“Fourteen days after AMVCA and I kept getting calls from family and friends asking me the same question, Stanley hope you are good? Are you coughing?,” he wrote on Instagram.
