Some are even asking that all guests of the Bellos at the birthday party should be quarantined while some are asking that they should be arrested.

However, yesterday, Funke Akindele and husband, JJC Skillz, threw a birthday party with lots of people in attendance.

Some were even more disappointed in Funke Akindele because she was one of the ambassadors used by NCDC to create awareness about the deadliness of coronavirus and how to curb its spread.

Similarly, Dettol Nigeria, said, "We have been made aware through social media that Funke Akindele recently, acting in her personal capacity, had a celebration which is against the caution to the public on social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic".

Those seen in the video include singer Naira Marley and actress Eniola Badmus, and some Nigerians have questioned whether they have been living with Akindele and her husband. She also later apologised for hosting the party. We don't know the reason for that.
