"I just want to take this video to announce that I have tested positive for Covid-19. I feel fine, honestly I have very mild symptoms. The only thing I’m experiencing is just I can’t smell or taste anything."
Ama encouraged her followers to adhere to Mzansi's lockdown regulations.
"I just have to tell everyone to stay indoors, if there’s no reason to leave your house, don’t. If you’re leaving your house make sure you guys sanitise, keep your distance, wear your mask and guys we’re gonna get through this. Like the saying goes: tough times never last, only tough people last, so we’ll be fine."
The star's Twitter followers flooded her timeline with messages of support after her revelation.
In other Covid-19 news, Briefly.co.za reported that Kabelo and his wife Gail Mabalane - who also stars in Blood & Water, have taken to social media to let Mzansi know that they have recovered from Covid-19.
The couple expressed that they had to use their mental health and spirituality in order to beat the coronavirus. Kabelo and Gail emphasised the realness of the virus and said they are grateful that the worst is over.
Kabelo, who is a musician, said he tested positive a few weeks ago. He explained that when the country moved to Level 3 lockdown, he let his "guard down".
The star said he wore his mask and sanitised but not as "vigorously" as when the country was still on the stricter Level 4 and 5 of the Covid-19 lockdown.
