This is obviously not the best time for popular comedian, Akpororo who during A.Y’s Easter show, gave a joke that was considered way too expensive.Although some, including women may have laughed at the joke, it however didn’t go down well with others, especially Nigerian Info FM’s On Air Personality, Fola, who took to Twitter to lash out at the comedian.Apparently sensing the build of the tension his joke created, Akpororo took to his Instagram page to issue an open apology to the women folk.
According to him, his joke was borne out of an intent to make his audience laugh and not to degrade the womenfolk. “Ladies and Gentlemen, my attention has been drawn to one of the jokes I did recently. I want to take this space to formally apologize to all who have been offended by the joke, especially the womenfolk. It was never my intention to put something as offensive as rape on a pedestal. I hold women in high esteem and this is drawn from the love and care I have enjoyed from my mother and sisters over the years and will never promote anything that would be detrimental friends to their wellbeing. I was only trying to crack up my audience. PLEASE FORGIVE that same Akpororo that you have helped to grow in the industry,” he wrote.
