The star actress and her producer husband JJC Skillz early Sunday morning came under heavy bashing from Nigerians on social media.

The backlash that trailed the celebrity couple was due to the house party they recently held in celebration of JJC Skillz’s 43rd birthday.

In a video clip that went viral on social media, the couple were seen dancing to singer Naira Marley’s “Tesu Mole” song.

The house party was held at their home in Amen Estate, located in Ibeju-Lekki axis of The Lekki Peninsula, Lagos.

Following the video’s release, angry Nigerians called for the arrest of the actress and her husband for their breaking the rules of “social distancing” to prevent the spread of the virus.

However, in another video on Sunday afternoon, Funke explained that the people seen in the video were workers in her studio who live outside Lagos but were caught up with the lockdown when it was announced by the federal government unexpectedly.
