Abuse of Coronavirus Safety Protocols At Yvonne Okoro’s Sister Wedding


There was gross abuse of coronavirus safety protocols at the traditional wedding of Roseline Okoro, the younger sister of popular Ghanaian-Nigerian actress, Yvonne Okoro.

Roseline tied the knot with her fiancé, Anthony on Sunday, April 11, 2021.

But videos from the star-studded wedding ceremony held in Accra, show violations of coronavirus safety protocols.

There was no social distancing and some guests were seen not wearing face masks.

The bride, the groom and another elderly man, probably Roseline’s dad or uncle were seen drinking palm wine from the same glass. Coronavirus, according to health experts spreads through saliva as well.

The wedding was attended by celebrities such as Kidi, Majid Michel, Stonebwoy and Medikal.

In one of the videos, Medikal was seen performing with a ‘thick’ crowd around him, with some persons not socially distancing nor wearing nose masks.

The ministry of health and Ghana Health Service Covid19 protocols mandates the wearing of face masks and social distancing at such events.

Recently, a similar ceremony in Norway landed the Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, in trouble.

She had been reported to have broken the coronavirus safety protocols at her birthday celebration and has since been fined 20,000 kroner (£1,713).

The violation came to light in a report by the public broadcaster NRK, which triggered a police investigation.

The Prime Minister has since apologised several times for organising the event for her 60th birthday with 13 relatives at a mountain resort in late February 2021, despite a government ban on gatherings of more than 10 people.

It remains to be seen if law enforcement personnel in Ghana who have been arresting poor citizens on streets for not wearing face masks, will take an interest in the violations of the safety protocols at Yvonne Okoro’s sister wedding.
