The 52-year-old spoke about his resolve to endorse the Labour Party presidential candidate during his comedy show on Sunday.

He said though he knew nothing about politics, his decision stemmed from the fact that he wanted “Nigeria to become better”.

AY also said Nigerians contributed to the decision he made because they kept insisting that his “voice must be heard”.


“I supported Peter Obi, as I am here, I still stand before you and say, I do not regret supporting Peter Obi. Na where my problem start be this o,” he said.

“The decision I made to support Peter Obi not because I am a politician but because I want change, but because I want Nigeria to become better. I know nothing about politics but nobody advised me.

“But guess what? People kept on saying to me, AY, your voice must be heard, you have over 25 million followers cut across the social media strata, your voice must be heard.


“Omo, na him they hear my voice o. As they hear my voice, my house burn. Yes, your voice must be heard.”

AY was one of the celebrities who endorsed Obi during the presidential election in February 2023.

He also hosted the LP presidential candidate in a live question and answer show.
