Comedian Alibaba also took to Twitter to defend Kunle Afolayan
He said: @kunleafolayan WHEN I TALK SAY NA OUR PROBLEM BE THESE, SOME YORUBA EGBONS TOLD ME TO SHUT UP. THEN AMAKA IGWE CAME TO MY RESCUE. I FEEL YOU
BY THE WAY I KNOW @kunleafolayan HE IS A DETRIBALIZED GUY… HE WAS JUST IN THE THROES OF PAIN FRON THE LOST REVENUE. HE HAS APOLOGIZED
Kunle Afolayan then offered an official apology to the Igbo people he initially insulted
In his words:
I am a patriotic Nigerian and that I portray in all my movies. Phone swap is even more of Igbo film than any other tribe. Again. I am sorry
Finally, I stand to say my grievances has got nothing to do with the trending Oba’s statement. It all came out of frustration. Sorry guys.
Nigerians let’s be sensitive to each others’ feeling. Let’s get rid of all these insults. It will take us nowhere. Nigeria can never be united with tribalism and hatred.
God bless us.
