He later apologised by saying: “I made a distasteful joke about Aramide last night at the Headies. I am embarrassed by my comments, I’m profusely sorry.

“Aramide is a hardworking artist who deserves every recognition she gets by merit. I sincerely apologise and pledge that such will not repeat itself.”

In spite of his apology, many Nigerians on Twitter descended heavily on him.
