He said he felt “devastated” and “funny” and had gone into self-isolation at home for 10 or 14 days.


Announcing his health status during a Facebook Live video, Okri said: “Hey folks, this is coming to me as a rude shock. I had my Covid test on Friday, hoping to fly today, Saturday and it turned out it was positive.


“I’m so devastated, which means that I can’t travel for another 10 to 14 days. As I’m speaking now, I’m self-quarantined.


“I just want to tell folks that yes, for those doubting Thomases, that the damn thing is real.


“I’m feeling funny; even though I had my vaccines, double shots, I’m still almost like, hmm, that doesn’t mean that you’re immune.


“So, folks, there are a lot of people walking around with it, but they don’t even know.


Okri relocated to the United States in 1995.
