Popular Nigerian comedian, Freedom Atsepoyi, professionally known as Mr. Jollof, gave a response to those criticising him for supporting APC National Leader and presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The comedian came under serious criticism on social media days ago after he shared a video of himself meeting the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and declaring his support for him.
Shortly after the video from the meeting went viral, Nigerians dug up an old video of Mr. Jollof criticising Tinubu in 2020 over his presidential ambitions.
Well, reacting to the backlash, Mr Jollof has now averred that everything he said about Tinubu in the past was out of “ignorance”.
According to him, he was blind but now he can see.
“Whatever I have said about Asiwaju, I was blind, now I can see, I was a baby then”, he said in part.
Sharing the video on his Instagram page, he wrote,
“Election na competition go and sell your candidate !!! See you on Election Day 🗳 I am BATTIFIED”.
