COMEDIAN, Francis
Agoda, has defended his
colleague Ayo Makun over
the criticism of his Big
Brother Naija joke.
During his AY Live show,
the comedian joked about the
sexual assault controversy
involving Kemen and
TBoss, ex-Big Brother Naija
housemates.
Subsequently, enraged
Nigerians took to social
media to lambast him for
joking about a sensitive topic.
The comedian has since
apologised and also
explained the inspiration
behind the joke.
Reacting to the matter,
Agoda popularly known as
IGoDye said comedians are
allowed to create humour
out of tragedy.
He said many Nigerians
pretend to be saints when in
actual fact, they are not.
“The effect of any joke is
to evoke laughter which
is a practice embraced
worldwide,” he wrote.
“The idea of comedy is to
create humour out of tragedy.
Our problem in this country
is that we act like saints in
the eyes of those who still
pretend to be saints.
“The joke on BBNaija
Housemates by @
aycomedian was just to
entertain without any form
of malice.
“So I wonder why we go
out to make issues out of
none issues when we are
bedevilled with various
challenges that need
attention.”
