Nigerians have expressed their disappointment in actress, Funke Akindele and her husband, Rasheed Bello, also known as JJC Skillz, for holding a party in her house despite official warnings against socialising inorder to curb the spread of the corona virus crisis. They are also calling for the arrest of the celebrities, for flouting the state and federal government orders, adding that Funke Akindele, who is one of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) ambassadors and who once ran an awareness campaign for the organization should have done better.

The party, which was held in the couple’s Amen estate home, done in celebration of JJC Skillz’s birthday had in attendance actress, Eniola Badmus, Naira Marley and a host of others. Reacting to the outrage, the Omo Ghetto star  claimed the party was part of the scenes of her upcoming movie, Omo Ghetto The Saga.
