So this was what started it.

Molara Wood (you should know her – she is one of Nigeria’s finest culture critics and former arts coverage leader at NEXT) tweeted something ‘intellectual’ about hair and ‘bleaching’ creams and you know high-minded talk about harmful images.
She was supported in this conversation by Kadaria Ahmed, one of Nigeria’s finest interviewers, whose credits including presidential debates and high-profile political gets. She has once worked for the BBC.
The whole thing was about an unfortunate sequence on Africa Magic’s Jara.
Sadly they came for the wrong person. Uti Nwachukwu, actor, presenter, not here for all highfalutin something. He took everything literally, and gave it all back literally.
ESPECIALLY when they came for his sartorial brilliance. Because, you can’t abuse Uti’s style and just go like that.
The whole thing went downhill from there. Like down, down, down hill.
We don’t even have the heart to reproduce the whole thing. Some people who do have the whole exchange from top to bottom HERE.
