Reactions As Funke Akindele Talk to Nigerians on the Need to Adhere to Social Distancing

Prominent Nollywood actress Funke Akindele who was fined by a magistrate court in Ogba, Lagos, for violating the coronavirus lock down directive (when she held a party during the lock down imposed to tackle coronavirus) of the Lagos State Government has released online video talking to Nigerians on the need to maintain social distancing and avoid contracting COVID-19 by adopting other recommended measures.

Recall that the actress was arraigned alongside her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello (JJC Skillz) before magistrate Aje Afunwa by the Nigerian Police. Funke was widely criticised online for the party in her Lagos mansion, held to celebrate the birthday of her husband. She came out to defend her actions saying that everyone who was there had been living in her house for several days.

“Nobody came from their house to party with us,” she said in a video shared on her Twitter feed.

However, Funke went steps further to apologized and promised to practise social distancing: Several weeks after the judgement, ”Funke has broken her silence, she came back strongly” as observed by those who reacted to her recent online video via twitter.
