Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has weighed in on the feud between Nigerian comedians, Bright Okocha and Ayo Makun, popularly known as Basket Mouth and AY respectively.
The actress, who brought in the issue of tribe, stated that she had learnt something about the Igbo people.
According to her, if Basket Mouth were to be a Yoruba and AY were to be Igbo, the Yoruba tribe would defend their son.
She went on to say that Igbos are not tribalistic, citing the fact that they attacked Basket Mouth, who is also Igbo, on social media because of what AY, a Yoruba man, said about him.
According to her, “I have learnt something about the Igbo. AY is an Yoruba man who accused Basket Mouth, an Igbo man of not paying him on time for a show he did for him in the past. Igbos started attacking their fellow Igbo man, Basket Mouth on Social Media because of what AY, a Yoruba man said about him.
“If Basket Mouth were to be a Yoruba and AY were to be Igbo, Yoruba will start defending their son. I am a Yoruba woman but we have to be telling ourselves the truth.
