However, the party got Nigerians talking and called for her arrest as its disappointing for such an act, the height of it all, being the Ambassador of NDCD. Many tweeted, read;
@iamremraj, “I am not sure these guys understand what healthcare officials have been going through/are presently going through containing this scourge. This #funkeakindele party makes a mockery of the efforts & sacrifices of these gallant men & women. This is the height of irresponsibility”.
“‘Actress, #funkeakindele and her husband should be arrested for throwing a party, amidst National Lockdown’’- Angry Nigerians. #funkeakindele #DearMrPresident #CoronavirusPandemic”, @Yourdailysourc3

In the video, which is almost two minutes long, JJC Skillz says it was his birthday and he had to invite friends to celebrate with him at their home located at Amen Estate, Lekki-Epe Expressway.
“Na here we dey, those of us wey get mind (sic). This is the best estate to be stuck in during the lockdown. It is my birthday”, he said.
However, Funke Akindele apologized for her action as all the attendees have been in her house for a movie shoot for about 2weeks no, according to her. But then, Nigerians never believed as Eniola Badmus came back from the UK recently.
