Exclusive: Olisa Adibua apologises!

The Beat 99.9 FM’s On-Air-Personality, Olisa Adibua has issued an official apology for violently attacking a colleaque, Adewunmi Oyekanmi. See below for the exclusive apology obtained by YNaija.

As has been widely reported I was involved in an altercation with a work colleague during the week. I am deeply regretful of what transpired and have taken full responsibility for my actions. I have privately apologized to my colleague, the team that I work with and I am taking this opportunity to apologize to the public at large. As humans we all make mistakes and I made a major one which is completely out of character. I over reacted to a situation and that is something that will never repeat itself.

Despite being at the centre of a media feeding frenzy, I’ve been silent in order to allow the organization, to which I’m affiliated with and at who’s premises the incident occurred, to carry out its investigations and come to a conclusion but most importantly to allow the aggrieved party (Mr. Adewunmi Oyekanmi) time to accept my heartfelt apology.

While the events have been distorted, I am very apologetic about the situation but picking holes in the media reports or pointing out the falsehoods will not be useful, however, any kind of loss of control is not excusable and I have since tendered an unreserved apology to ‘Dewunmi. I have always preached against violence and so this is a time for some reflection. Again, I apologize and I thank ‘Dewunmi for accepting my apology.

I would like to thank the hundreds of people who called me and those who sent in messages For more than 20years now, I’ve operated in the Electronic media sector without a blemish but by this action, I have let myself down and most importantly I’ve let Family, Friends and the millions of people who look up to me, down.” To those who have been clamoring for my response, I thank you for your patience and understanding.

Thank you very much and God Bless.

Olisa Adibua

  1. Am lost what happened? I don't like Olisa but he just tendered a good appology guys easy on him. Even if he is acting, he is acting well! Easy people!

  2. What he did was wrong,he apologised,the victim accepted his apology,the company has taken disciplinary action,CASE CLOSED. We all make mistakes,let's not end a man's career of 20years by judging him,we all make mistakes(don't 4get chris brown).let's focus on the real issues JOS,BOKO HARAM,BOMBINGS when did so much HATE start in our country?,may we not become the next afghanistan(yes it is that serious).

  3. Olisa is simply animaistic and a bad example to d pubic. He claims he has been fighting against violence but carried out an attack like dis on fellow colleague den he is nt fit to b in d soiety.he shld be locked out completely

  4. There is absolutely no excuse for what he did. An apology doesn't cut it. He has to face the consequences of his action.

  5. I didnt know he could apologise! My opinion of him has changed small…

  6. You r fool 4 dis one… Can u touch any asika or just a prominent persons son lyk dat? Even if he straffs ur mama… God will judge you, apology ko, aproko ni.. U must see dis one #olofo

  8. i think he should go screw himself.
    I think he should be sacked
    i think no sponsor should touch him again. He's damaged goods.
    I don't hate him because he behaves all gayish, but he has to learn to respect people.
    This is what a second rate broadcaster degenerates to when he has an over inflated sense of ego

  9. People make mistakes, wisg wunmi a speedy recovery…life goes on! And for those always looking for the slightest opportunity to bring one down, God sees
