Comedian Ebiye is cancelled, and he doesn’t know this yet.
last night, after Aramide was announced the winner for Headies Award Best Alternative Song category for her smash hit single, “Fun Mi Lowo Mi” featuring Sound Sultan and Koker, Ebiye took to his SnapChat to dismiss her effort.
“She can’t even believe it, lol she prolly f***ed for the award. #Headies,” Ebiye said.
The misogynist comment stirred outrage on social media, as it should. And seeing the damage he has done to his ‘career’, Ebiye rushed to Instagram to issue a statement, chalking his misogyny to ‘distasteful joke’.
“I made a distasteful joke about @aramidemusic last night at the headies. I am embarrassed by my comments and I am profusely sorry. Aramide is a hardworking artist who deserves every recognition she gets by merit. I sincerely apologize and pledge that such will not repeat itself again,” he wrote.
Adding, “I pledge to control my words in the future as things said and written cannot be taken back.”
Aramide has yet to dignify the statement with a response.
