Funke Akindele and husband JJC Skillz under fire for ‘enabling’ Coronavirus spread

The Nigeria Twitter community are really mad at Nollywood actress Funke Akindele and her husband Rasheed Abdul Bello, popularly known as JJC Skills, for hosting a birthday party during the Coronavirus lockdown mandated by the federal government in Lagos.

The party was in honour of JJC Skillz’s birthday and was held at the couple’s house. Also spotted in attendance were controversial Nigerian singer Azzez Fashola aka Naira Marley and actress Eniola Badmus.

The ironic part of the whole thing was that Funke Akindele is the face of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the government body charged with coordinating Nigeria’s response to the current Coronavirus pandemic.

This fact was not missed by some Twitterers who shared a clip of the message from Funke advising people to practice social distancing.

We wonder what the NCDC will have to say about it. And Dettol for that matter. Funke Akindele is also an ambassador for the brand.

So, Nigerians are rightly disappointed and many of them have taken to Twitter to berate the couple for what some see as enabling the spread of Coronavirus and blatant flagrant of the directive by the Lagos State government banning gatherings of more than 20 people.

Nether Funke, JJC Skillz, Dettol nor NCDC has reacted at the time of writing.

Here is a sample of what Nigerians are saying:
