“I just did an sms of an apology to 2face and his family because sometimes, people misunderstand why we do what we do” he said.
“I am just a comedian who is doing his job…This is not intended to insult him or his family. He has even said it in is songs. But I understand the situation we are in and I felt that was a little bit below the belt and I had to apologise. This wasn’t intended to bring a fight” the comedian explained.
