Victoria Inyama, a Nollywood actress, has revealed that she tested positive for the COVID-19 disease.


She broke the news in a video-backed statement shared on her Instagram handle on Sunday morning.

In the post, the film star can be seen plugged onto a ventilator with a drip line running through her arm.

“I couldn’t have been more careful with the kids going to school etc. I would rather go through this than my children. What a Christmas and New Year. What a 2021! COVID is a terrible terrible virus,” the actress wrote.


“I can’t even explain. So exhausting, 3 weeks and still counting. Thanks to @ldn_ambulance Kent zone, @darent_valley_hospital @tiko4guvnor @drtonero @wonuola.akintola. This too shall pass.”

In a picture that accompanied the post, which appeared to be the COVID-19 test result from a UK hospital, the mother of three was asked to self-isolate and stay at home until January 6.

“Account ID 1b7bdb00. You have tested positive for COVID-19, so you must stay at home and self-isolate until the 6th of January (including this date). If you still have a fever until the 6th, you should continue,” the text read.


Born in Enugu, Inyama began acting in 1990. She later married Godwin Okri, her husband, and relocated to the UK.

Some of the movies for which she is known are ‘Silent Night’, ‘Danger Zone’, ‘Odum’, and ‘Love from Above’. Other Nollywood films she has also starred in are ‘Iyanga’, ‘Eze Nwanyi’, Glamour Boys’ as well as ‘Barraccuda’.
