NIGERIAN music producer, Don Jazzy, is full of admiration for Nigerian actress Funke Akindele-Bello after she apologized for a mistake.
The actress and her husband were arraigned before the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Ogba by the Lagos State Government for violating the lockdown order to check the spread of coronavirus.
Funke and her husband Abdul Rasheed Bello were arrested for hosting guests in their upscale residence in Lekki.
They were fined $260 (£210) and sentenced to hours of community service for their act.
Funke Akindele-Bello admitted her mistake and apologized to Nigerians for her action.
Following her apology, Don Jazzy says the actress has earned extra respect from him.
The music producer said that the actress showed courage by accepting her fault and apologizing for it.
"I have always admired your talent and hard work but I have more respect for you now as a person. You made a mistake and you owned it. This takes courage and you have shown all of us that you are courageous. As humans, we must make mistakes. Only God is perfect. My prayer everyday is that I don’t make a mistake that will cost me my life or reputation.”
”You have made yours and the whole world has seen. Thankfully, it didn’t cost you your life or anyone else’s. Just a tiny reputational damage that in my opinion you have already restored because you have paid the price with jara on top.”
”If you dey shame, stop am o, because as TuBaba talk, “nobody holy pass”. I pray that henceforth, you continue to be the good example that you have always been to us all. Amen. One more thing, I don dey act now o. Tenks! #IDJA cc @funkejenifaakindele”, Don Jazzy wrote.
Meanwhile Burna Boy also advised Nigerians to use the same energy they used to criticize Funke to hold leaders accountable for their corrupt acts.
