Funke and her husband, JJC Skillz had a birthday party at their Amen estate home in Lagos state last night and was attended by quite a number of people which contravenes the social distancing order of the Lagos state government. She was picked up by men of the Lagos state police command while her husband and singer, Naira Marley have been asked to come forward for questioning.

In the video, she emphasised on the need for Nigerians to practice proper hygiene such as washing of their hands and social distancing.
