49-year old Nollywood actress, script writer and movie director, Shan George, took to her Instagram handle to share her HIV status after undergoing a recent lab screening for HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
She wrote thus: “Test Result! Don’t get it twisted, this doesn’t mean I’m holy, and it’s not a pass into heaven. It does feel awesome tho. (Go do yours).”
As one would expect of internet publicity, Shan George received several encouragements as well a serious tongue-lashing from fans who were curious as to know why she would want to share her HIV status with the world.
Fans also were curious to know if she would have shared her status if she was HIV negative.
Some went as far as saying that Shan George was trying to follow in Cossy Orijiakor’s steps, thereby making it a trend which was rather unnecessary.
Shan George got married at the age of 16. She is a proud mother of two. She has won many awards in her career and still remains relevant in the entertainment industry.
