Comedian Ebiye has apologized to singer Aramide for suggesting in a joke that she got intimate with someone to win at the Headies.
Aramide beat Adekunle Gold, Johnny Drille, Reminisce and Bantu to emerge winner of the “Best Alternative song” award.
Ebiye decided to take inspiration from her victory, by joking about her sleeping with someone to win the award. The joke was not laughed at and the comedian was dragged on social media.
Reacting to his joke, he apologised on Instagram.
“I made a distasteful joke about @aramidemusic last night at the headies. I am embarrassed by my comments and I am profusely sorry. Aramide is a hardworking artist who deserves every recognition she gets by merit. I sincerely apologize and pledge that such will not repeat itself again.
I pledge to control my words in the future as things said and written cannot be taken back. ❤,” he wrote.
