Celebrated drama actor Sam Bagenda aka Dr Bbosa, of The Ebonies drama group, on Monday, November 30, 2020, came out and trashed reports that have been circulating on social media that he was suffering from Covid-19.
Bagenda, who was speaking during an interview on local television, said that he is as healthy as one can be and it is not true that he was suffering from COVID-19 like it was being reported.
“I thank all my fans who tried to reach out but I want to reassure them that I am not sick emotionally or physically. I don’t know why someone went and created that story but it is not true.” Bbosa said.
The beloved actor, who become wildly popular in the ’90s through two popular drama TV shows ‘That’s Life Mwattu’ and ‘Bibawo’, revealed that one of his female fans who has high blood pressure fainted on hearing the fake news that he was on his deathbed.
Bbosa cautioned Ugandans to observe Ministry of Health guidelines by saying that; “COVID is real. I wear my mask almost all the time and I have only removed it to talk to you for this interview.”
