Afrobeat sensation David Adeleke, widely known as Davido, has responded to comedian AY’s recent public apology in the wake of an insensitive joke made during a stage performance.
AY, during a recent show in Warri, made remarks that were considered offensive, insinuating that Davido had impregnated multiple women with his small manhood while he, AY, had been struggling with his larger one for over 13 years.
This joke sparked considerable backlash from the online community, as many criticized AY for publicly disrespecting a fellow entertainer.
In an effort to make amends, AY posted an apology on Instagram, acknowledging the misunderstanding and the negative attention his words had garnered.
He expressed regret for the poorly delivered joke and extended his apologies to Davido. AY’s message read, “I am very sorry for the way that joke came out in Warri. You have every right to be angry after seeing how it was used by blogs. Please understand that we are all constantly learning in the entertainment business. I deserve any backlash coming my way for the poorly delivered joke in Warri. So, no excuses at all, my Aburo. No reason for them. I remain your number one fan, and I love you, @davido.”
In response, Davido displayed his magnanimity by assuring AY that all was well. He wrote, “Nothing spoil baba mi,” indicating his willingness to forgive and move forward from the incident.
