Johannesburg – Actress Ntando Duma has shrugged off criticism after she hosted a lavish birthday party for her daughter, while the country is still under lockdown.
With deaths and infections due to the coronavirus rise at an alarming rate, personal visits to family and friends also remain prohibited. Ntando, however, took to Twitter to share snaps of the party she and Junior da Rocka had thrown for their daughter, Sbahle.
Images from the cute Frozen-themed party showed space for eight people, and at least four adults, including Ntando and Junior.
While most fans were impressed with the decor, others pointed out throwing a party was irresponsible and hospitals were struggling to cope with Covid-19 infections.
Ntando responded to the criticism, confirming that she had family over for the celebration, but said everyone “had stayed covered and protected while at it”.
“For those who were/are concerned and in disbelief that we (Sbahle’s dad and I) hosted our daughter her dream birthday celebration during lockdown. Yes! We definitely did that with family members as we stayed covered and protected while at it,” said Ntando.
She added that those concerned must “focus”.
