Timini, who is mostly type-cast for the bad boy and ladies man role in his movies, wrote on his official Twitter page: “We need a full national 24 hours lockdown on Valentine’s Day.”

Lately the trend setting the tone for online relationships and the PDA that comes with it has the tag – “His View / My View” and vice versa, so it is only expected that February 14, known as a public holiday for lovers to showcase affection for eachother will only bring more of such trends and the drama that comes with but according to Timini, he feels there is no need for such as he asks for a 24-hour lockdown on Valentine’s Day.

Although not giving apt reasons for such demands, Timini ended the tweet with the words: “This thing don dey spread too much.” probably alluding to the widespread of Covid-19 or what I will tag ‘The Lover’s Syndrome’ which basically gave birth to the aforementioned trend.

Many quite agree with Timini and his stance as can be seen in the following replies:
