A police report yesterday revealed that 31 revellers were arrested at Funky Lab in Windhoek on Saturday night, with well-known personalities Sunny Boy, Top Cheri and Jossy Joss as well as night club owner Thomas Nakasole among those detained.
The incident took place at about 22:30 at the club situated in Independence Avenue.
The celebs and other partygoers were arrested for contravening the regulations of the coronavirus state of emergency, which prohibits public gatherings and the selling of alcohol.
“The suspects were arrested, charged and given admission of guilt of N$2 000 each,” the police statement read.
Some suspects released on Saturday night were re-arrested yesterday morning for being unprocedurally released and had to be formally charged.
From bad to worse
A few days ago, Sunny Boy made headlines for an alleged cheating scandal which threatened his long-time relationship with fiancé Nelaolange Iyambo.
At the time, the musician announced that he would share his side of the story at Saturday night's event.
Screenshot evidence seen by Namibian Sun confirmed that Top Cheri was among the arrested.
“Hey guys, yes, I'm arrested and I'm still currently here. But I am okay. As soon as I am out, I will communicate with you guys. But please don't panic,” read a message by the Hangover hitmaker in a fans WhatsApp group.
Attempts to reach Jossy Joss for comment proved unsuccessful as the radio personality's phone remained unreachable.
