Nigerian Actress Funke Fined for Partying During Lockdown

Nollywood actress Funke Akindele in a video on her Instagram page, explained that the guests at the party had been in the estate before the lockdown, later apologising for hosting the shindig. The actress and her family has come in for heavy criticism for flouting government directives on total lockdown and self-distancing, to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Akindele and her husband will now have to each pay a U.S.$260 fine and do 14 days of community service.
