Ace comedian, Ayo ‘AY’ Makun, has responded to the tweet from Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, in which the actor referred to him as ‘classless’.
This came as a result of a comedy skit done by the comedian, which replicates Iyke’s ‘deliverance’ session at TB Joshua’s Synagogue church.
AY has said that the skit was designed to be a joke, pointing out that there would not be an entertainment industry, if everyone starts reacting to jokes or how actors portray characters in movies – like pastors, doctors or lawyers.
According to HipHopWorld report:
“It was designed to be a joke, it’s still a joke”, Makun said. “I’m a standup comedian and we make people laugh for a living and comedians are social commentators”.
AY also apologized to Jim Iyke for the skit, but didn’t fail to affirm that he’s NOT ‘classless’.
“I’m sorry about it, it wasn’t designed to be detrimental in any way but if you see it that way, bro., I got nothing but love for you…I’m not classless and I know you know that”, he said.
The skit also features Jara presenter Helen Paul, better known as Tatafo.
Iyke had earlier tweeted at AY, saying: “Peo (sic) cross lines sometimes for relevance. It disappoints even more if it comes frm peo (sic) u deemed to hv self respect #Classless.”
