Popular Nigerian comedian cum actor, Ayo Makun, AY has stated that he didn’t mean any harm whatsoever for music mogul, Dbanj and his wife, Lineo after he made comments on their vacation.
Nigerian broadcaster, N6, recently criticised the comedian for allegedly making an insensitive comment after D’banj uploaded a video of himself having fun with his wife in Dubai on Instagram.
Reacting to the video, AY wrote;
“Things like this only tell me that we are coming for a naming ceremony soon. Celebrations will never depart from your home. You’ve passed God’s test. Happiness is free.”
Though the post looked harmless, N6 and his co-host, Joyce Onyemuwa, felt otherwise – according to the media personalities, it was wrong for AY to insinuate that the death of D’banj’s child was God’s test.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, AY said he didn’t think anything was wrong about his post on D’banj’s page when he read other people’s views.
“It was not necessary (referring to the OAP’s comment about him). Immediately, I saw the comment, I read other people’s views. Once I noticed that other people’s views and how they saw the whole thing contradicted the person who was trying to get attention by slamming me, I didn’t care. He got the backlash at the end of the day.”
