Jason Njoku, CEO of IrokoTV, says he is on oxygen support after testing positive for COVID-19.

He broke the news On Wednesday via Twitter after sharing a picture of himself plugged onto a ventilator.

“Thanks all for your wishes. The kids all tested negative so they’re fine. Mrs. Mary Njoku other than minor fatigue is fine. Me? This thing beat me up at home for a week,” the father of three said.

“Since Monday I’ve been hospitalized with hardcore fever & need oxygen to support my breathing. It will pass.”

Last week, Njoku had revealed that he and his wife had undergone a test for COVID-19, which came out positive.

He had similarly shared a photo of a medical attendant inserting a swab down his throat, writing: “My enemies are hard at work in 2020. Mrs. Njoku and I tested positive for Covid19.

“I’m not feeling great but Mary is well. Literally no idea how I caught it.  But we shall see this pass too.”

Njoku had launched IrokoTV in 2011. The platform web-based provides paid-for Nigerian films on demand.

Speaking on how he juggles family with building his brand during an interview, Njoku had said: “When my children were much younger, I was living on a plane, traveling across so many time zones.

“I missed them, and Mrs. Njoku, very much. I travel a lot less now, so I would say my favourite time of day is when I get home from work and I hear what they’ve done at nursery, we play and laugh and have dinner together.”

US rapper Nicki Minaj detained over soft drugs

US rapper Nicki Minaj has been detained at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on suspicion of possessing soft drugs, Dutch media reported Saturday.

The singer was due to perform a show in Britain later Saturday and posted images on social media of her being questioned by officials.

Police confirmed to AFP that they had detained a 41-year-old American woman but declined to confirm directly that it was Minaj.

“We never confirm the identity of a person in custody but I can confirm we have arrested a 41-year-old woman suspected of trying to export soft drugs to another country,” Robert Kapel, a military police spokesman, told AFP.

“The interrogation is still ongoing,” Kapel added.

The rapper posted on X that authorities told her they had found cannabis in her luggage, which she said belonged to her security personnel.

“Keep in mind they took my bags without consent. My security has already advised them those pre-rolls belong to him,” she wrote on X, referring to marijuana joints.

“Now they said I have to go five mins away to make a statement about my security to the police precinct,” she said. “It’s to try to make me late so that they can write negative stories.”

A common misconception outside the Netherlands is that dope is legal in the country, home to world-famous coffee shops (which actually sell pot) that are a huge draw for cannabis smokers.

The consumption of small quantities of cannabis is technically illegal but police choose not to enforce the law as part of a “tolerance” policy in place since the 1970s.

Transporting the drugs to another country is illegal.
