In the early hours of today, Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele-Bello came under fire on social media after pictures from her husband, JJC’s birthday party surfaced on the internet. The mother of 2 has humbly admitted what she did was wrong, thereby apologizing to Nigerians who felt misled because she organized a gathering after preaching social distancing.
In the video the 42 year old shared on her Instagram page, she explained she that she did not intend to mislead people stating that the people present at the birthday are those that stay in her estate and no outsider was invited.
She added that she made a mistake by putting it on social media and portraying that it was a party.
In her words “I am sorry once again, I appreciate the love and i promise to always support the government in creating more awareness to eradicate the pandemic “.
She captioned the video ” Dear Friends, I really have to do this!!
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.
Please stay safe. And God bless. @lagosstategovt“
