I won’t offend you again – OAP Nedu apologises for implying that most women are gold diggers
Controversial On Air Personality, Nedu Wazobia has tendered an apology on his comment about women turning marriage into poverty alleviation scheme.
He had shared his opinion on the divorce saga of Moroccan footballer, Achraf Hakimi and his wife, Hiba Abouk.
Nedu chided women in a video shared on his Instagram page, saying that most of them make people to lose interest in marriage. He asserted that love in marriage is dead.
The TV presenter said: “I don’t know if you people have seen that video or the pictures or the message of that PSG footballer called Hakimi who claimed to be 24-year-old and his wife is asking for a divorce. And demand 50 per cent of his property.
“You see that marriage is dead? In fact, if people believed anything in marriage before, with what’s happening in marriage in the whole world, people wouldn’t want to get married anymore.
Most women, many of you, make some people not be interested in marriage because you have turned the thing into a poverty alleviation scheme.”
He received heavy criticism on social media over his comments as people called him insensitive, and said he must not speak on every relationship matter.
Nedu decided to apologise in a series of posts on his Instagram story, noting that his salary comes from their pocket.
The OAP stressed that he would discontinue saying things that people generally do not like.
He wrote: ”Sincere apologies to those hurt by my Hakimi video. It’s totally taken out of context. Regardless, I sincerely apologize. It’s you guys that’s paying my salary, so whatever doesn’t sit well with you all won’t be entertained by me. God bless you all. Love and light.”
