She was widely criticised online for the party in her Lagos mansion, held to celebrate the birthday of her husband.
Akindele has appeared in a Nigeria Centre for Disease Control video to raise awareness about coronavirus
She defended Saturday’s party, saying that everyone who was there had been living in her house for several days.
Nobody came from their house to party with us,” she said in a video shared on her Twitter feed.
However, she did apologise and promised to practise social distancing:
Those seen in the video include singer Naira Marley and actress Eniola Badmus, and some Nigerians have questioned whether they have been living with Akindele and her husband.
It is not clear how many people attended the event in Lagos, where all gatherings of more than 25 people have been banned.
As well as the fine, the couple have also been ordered to do 14 days of community service stipulating that they should both visit 10 important public places within Lagos state to educate the public on the consequences of not complying with restriction orders imposed by the government.
They were also told to submit the names and contact details of everyone else who attended the event.
