Top Nollywood actress Funke Akindele is still grabbing news headlines for the wrong reason.
Funke Akindele, who is well loved by Nigerians and does well to avoid controversy, disobeyed government lockdown order by throwing a house party in celebration of his husband, JJC Skillz, who recently turned a new age.
The birthday party was held at the residential home of the couple on Saturday, April 4, 2020, with the likes of Naira Marley and Eniola Madmus in attendance amongst others.
Mrs. Akindele was swifty arrssted by the police on Sunday as her conduct is said to have derailed measures put in place by the government to slow the spread of coronavirus in the country.
However, it’s still not known if the movie star violated Lagos State Government’s order of not having more than 25 people in a single gathering.
She has since emerged as the number one trending topic on Twitter as Nigerians took to the micro-blogging platform to drag the actress and her husband after video clips from the house party was shared online.
Check out their reactions below:
Funke Akindele and her husband are selfish and wicked, how can a sane person host a party during a social distancing phase? Doctors and Nurses are stressing out and dying and they do this? She needs to be called out and held accountable https://t.co/CyOoxtHRqr

Funke Akindele messed up though.. It's like she's making a mockery of the whole Coronavirus thing.
Question is if there's truly a total Lockdown in Lagos , How did all those who attended get to the venue? 🙄🙄🙄

Careless behaviour from the likes of Funke Akindele is the reason this lockdown will be extended and it'll hurt those of us diligently adhering to the rules. Selfish for an NCDC ambassador.

Funke akindele, should be questioned by the police and fined!
She was the same person telling us to avoid gatherings.

Funke Akindele throwing a party amidst this whole pandemic is very irresponsible and disappointing to say the least.

@NCDCgov used Funke Akindele in a video to sensitize people about the need to stay at home, wash hands and practice social distancing.
The same Funke Akindele’s organized a crowded house party with Naira Marley, Eniola Badmus who returned from the UK. https://t.co/WWs9ZtWrQg

I love Funke Akindele. But she and her husband shouldn't have thrown that house party.
…and please, they aren't the only irresponsible culprits here.
Everyone who attended that party is mad as well.
Can't people live without partying? pic.twitter.com/pldL3Gwuri

It's gross irresponsibility for Funke Akindele, who should know better as an ambassador of the @NCDCgov, to throw a party in this delicate period. Practice what you preach ffs! What message are you passing to your followers? "Coronavirus is not that serious"?

What Funke Akindele and the husband did was highly irresponsible, I expected both of them to know better. How can you organize a house party with so many people in attendance at this time when social distancing is very important. It’s disappointing really

Funke Akindele and her husband are certified idiots.
This is beyond unreasonable, it's disgusting.
