Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham has distanced herself from a claim that she has been signed an ambassador for the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
It was rumoured yesterday that she was signed as a replacement for fellow actress Funke Akindele who was dropped following the illegal birthday party she had hosted during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Social media users had berated Abraham, accusing her of profiting off Akindele’s misfortune.
Clearing the air, Abraham wrote: “It has just been brought to my attention that blogs are reporting that I am now NCDC ambassador. Implying that I have been used to replace a senior colleague.
“That line of thought necessitates I put this out there. I am not an ambassador to NCDC. I do not like the narrative that I am trying to take advantage of a bad situation.
“Please, I support the campaign against Covid-19. I appeared on a video campaign against the pandemic but please let’s not drag anyone down. Thank you.”
