Funke Akindele Under Fire Over House Party

Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz

Popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akimdele was lambasted by several Nigerians on social media, for organizing a house party during this COVID-19 times.

Her husband and producer, JJC Skillz was also subjected to criticisms, as the couple organized the house party in celebration of Skillz 43rd birthday.

The vitriol began after JJC posted videos from the house party celebration, videos featuring a large crowd merrymaking.

Last Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari declared a lockdown of Lagos, Ogun and Abuja in a bid to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Many States have banned public gatherings and urged its people to practice social distancing in order to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Ironically, Funke Akindele also happens to be a brand ambassador for Dettol and NCDC, major drivers of keeping good hygiene in the country.

As a Dettol ambassador, Akindele was heavily involved in the ‘Clean Naija’ initiative, an initiative which aims to create awareness, educate and drive behavioural change among Nigerians in order to achieve a cleaner nation through the continuous habit of hand washing.

To most, having a house party contradicts the works she has been doing to help mitigate the spread of the virus.

Some of the reactions from Nigerians can be seen below;
