Sydney Talker’s Covid-19 Prank, and How Everything Backfired.

Nigerians are angry, and are demanding that Instagram comedian, Sydney Talker, be punished as well as boycotted; after a prank gone wrong.

Did you miss the gist?

Here’s a quick brief:

Last week, Sydney Talker, posted a supposed prank call to Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC); complaining of having symptoms of covid-19.

However, after receiving a lot of backlash for making pranks with a pandemic; as well as putting a strain on the already overworked NCDC; Sydney came out to say that he was indeed having symptoms, and the call was no prank.

This claim was accompanied with videos of him having trouble breathing, coughing; and even going to several hospitals.

After lots of pressure to post his tests results, Sydney posted it online; and apparently he had been issued his results, which is negative; since the 26th of March; a day before he flooded social media with videos of him being unattended to.

Sydney still maintains his stance, even though the truth is glaring; and Nigerians are furious:

What do you think about the whole situation?
