Coronavirus In Africa Is Fake, Ibrah One Claims

Ghana’s youngest millionaire Ibrah One has once again spoken his mind on the coronavirus and i’m beginning to wonder what he really thinks. According to Ibrah One, the virus which is currently in Africa is fake and as a matter of fact he has stopped wearing the mask whenever he goes out. He further disclosed that he laughs at people wearing the mask anytime he goes out because 95% of the masks are not up to standard. Ibrah was the same person who disclosed that the coronavirus was already in the country since we don’t have the equipment’s to detect them at the initial stages so i’m currently wondering why he is now saying it’s fake. A change of mind upon close study i guess. See Screenshot
