Nigerian actress Funke Akindele-Bello has been arrested after hosting a birthday party for her husband during a lock-down in the country despite being the face of the ‘Stay Home’ campaign.
The actress was also called out for hypocrisy as she was one of many celebrities who advised people to stay at home in a campaign by Dettol Nigeria to raise awareness about proper hygiene and social distancing. A lot of people where out raged at the fact that she adviced people to social distance but dint do the same.
I hear you all and I acknowledge all your honest feedback.
I also thank you for your concerns, well wishes and calls.
I am sorry and hope this video offers some explanation.
