Nigerian actress, Rita Dominic, has debunked the viral news of the birth of twins after reports on Wednesday by different media outlets suggested that the recently married actress has put to bed a twin.
With congratulatory messages trooping-in on different social media platforms, the 47-year-old took to her Twitter page to debunk the rumour, she shared a graphics interchange format (GIF) with a surprised face and the tag #FakeNews.
A business partner and friend of the actress, Mildred Okwo, also took the time to debunk the rumour.
She said, “You see somebody on set today, and the next day they have twins; I do not understand. If Rita has had a child, would I not send a press release to you guys? Common, it does not make sense. Can you imagine? She took a picture while on a movie set. She posted a picture; she is on a movie set; maybe I should call her to find out if she has given birth.
“It is bloggers that are peddling fake news. Kindly ignore them. If she has a child, there is no way that I would not make the announcement and I will definitely not talk to bloggers.”
