The movie star and her husband JJC Skillz in the early hours of Sunday was heavily criticized by fellow Nigerians on social media. The counterblast to the celebrity couple was due to the house party they help recently in celebration of JJC Skillz’s 43rd birthday. In a video clip that went viral on social media, the couple were seen dancing to singer Naira Marley’s “Tesu Mole” song.
Nigerians angrily called for the arrest of Funke Akindele and her husband JJC for breaking the rules of “social distancing” to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 after which the said video went viral online. However, in another video on Sunday afternoon, Funke explained that the people seen in the video were workers in her studio who live outside Lagos but were caught up with the lock-down when it was announced by the federal government unexpectedly.
Dear Friends, I really have to do this!! I hear you all and I acknowledge all your honest feedback. I also thank you for your concerns, well wishes and calls. I am sorry and hope this video offers some explanation. Please stay safe. And God bless. @lagosstategovt
