In a now-deleted tweet, the actress responded to a Nigerian who stated that losing her endorsement may be as a result of “plain stupidity” and not a matter of “witch hunt”, said:

“Uncle don’t create unnecessary sensation. #omoghettothesaga was to be filmed Before the lockdown and some of us had been camped in Amen estate.

So we had to stay in there. So we are safe and happy!! Let’s not be NEGATIVE!!”

She further stated, “We all have been together for over two weeks. We are safe and take all precautions”.

In addition, JJC Skillz also took to Instagram Live to address the situation, saying: “Yesterday we had a bit of an unexpected turn-up. But we thank God. A lot of people are ranting and talking online. It’s your data. You’re very free. Please, go ahead. But, I could tell you guys, we’re safe and sound… Everyone that came to the party has been in Amen estate for about a month now…”
