Nigerian celebrities turned up to a glitzy award ceremony wearing glittery, jeweled face masks amid the coronavirus pandemic.
That is despite medical experts advising that face masks do not provide effective protection.
At least one of the stars said they were using the mask to make a statement rather than to prevent the spread of the virus.
Nigeria has reported just two confirmed cases of coronavirus and no deaths.
The first case of the coronavirus in sub-Saharan Africa was an Italian who flew from Milan to Lagos in February.
The Big Brother Naija finalist Omashola Kola Oburoh said he turned up to the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) awards in a glittery mask as a protest.
“Fashion can also be a Protest/Educative, not just a Statement…… let’s join hands to fight Covid19,” he said in an Instagram post.
