Comedian AY Clears The Air On His "Incentive Comment" About D'band & Wife

Broadcaster, N6, recently criticised comedian Ayo Makun, aka AY, for allegedly making an insensitive comment when D’banj uploaded a video of himself having fun with his wife in Dubai on Instagram.

Reacting to the video, AY wrote, “Things like this only tell me that we are coming for a naming ceremony soon. Celebrations will never depart from your home. You’ve passed God’s test. Happiness is free.”

While the post looked harmless, N6 and his co-host, Joyce Onyemuwa, felt otherwise. According to them, it was wrong for AY to insinuate that the death of D’banj’s child was God’s test.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, AY said he didn’t think anything was wrong about his post on D’banj’s page when he read other people’s views.

He said, “It was not necessary (referring to the OAP’s comment about him). Immediately, I saw the comment, I read other people’s views. Once I noticed that other people’s views and how they saw the whole thing contradicted the person who was trying to get attention by slamming me, I didn’t care. He got the backlash at the end of the day.”
