January 21, (THEWILL) – Freedom Atsepoyi, aka Mr Jollof, has apologised to his fans in Nigeria and the diaspora for engaging in a war of words with Ayodeji Balogun, professionally known as Wizkid, since the singer announced his tour with his colleague, Davido.
Wizkid took to social media to announce his intended tour with Davido after his More Love, Less Ego tour.
After the announcement, Mr Jollof reacted and accused him of riding on Davido’s relevance.
Not allowing it to slide, Wizkid also reacted to Mr Jollof’s outburst and stated that any man begging to feed his family is a house help.
Meanwhile, the comment did not sit well with Mr Jollof, as he described the relationship he has with Wizkid as mutual and nothing more.
The two engaged in a back-and-forth, but Mr Jollof became tired and threw in the towel. He took to Instagram to apologise to his fans for engaging in the show of shame.
“As you are all aware, the Mr Jollof platform over the years has been identified as a social critic in all spheres, saying it as it is with no intention to destroy anyone’s reputation or source of income.
“My recent message towards Ayo Balogun, Wizkid was borne from a place of deep love for the artiste, though not received in that manner, which led to an online outburst and banter.
“I would like to reiterate that Mr Jollof brand is one to support young entrepreneurs both growing and established. It is heartbreaking when the positive energy with which I render such support is regarded as inconsequential and downtrodden.
“I, Freedom Atsepoyi, aka Mr Jollof, want to use this medium to sincerely apologise to Mr Jollof’s audience in Nigeria and the diaspora, who are disappointed about the brouhaha in the last two days on the social media space, kindly pardon my emotions.
“Love and Light”, he wrote.
