Don Jazzy, CEO of Mavin Records, has hailed Funke Akindele, Nollywood actress, for owning up after her ordeal with the Lagos government.

Akindele, 42, was earlier sentenced to 14-day community service with N100,000 fine alongside her husband after she violated social distancing directives towards containing COVID-19 spread.

But on Tuesday, the movie star had broken the silence about her ordeals with police authorities, saying God’s plan is bigger than one’s mistakes.

Taking to his Twitter page on Wednesday to react to Akindele’s comment, Don Jazzy said she has now paid the price and earned his respect for owning up after such mistake.

“I’ve always admired your talent and hard work. But I now have more respect for you as a person. You made a mistake and you owned it. It takes courage and you showed us you’re courageous,” he wrote.

“As humans, we must make mistakes. My prayer is that I don’t make one that will cost me my life or reputation. You made yours and the whole world has seen. Thankfully, it didn’t cost you your life or anyone else’s.

“Just 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 a good example that you have always been to us all. Amen. One more thing, I don dey act now o. Thanks!”

After Akindele’s conviction, she had addressed her fans — in a bid to create more awareness about the COVID-19 pandemic — admitting that she had learned lessons from the incident.

“Thank you so much for all the loves, supports, feedbacks, and calls. These past few weeks have been a learning curve, but we must keep moving forward,” she had said.
