Chinedu Ani, popularly known as OAP Nedu, a popular Nigerian on-air personality, and comedian, has apologized for his recent remark regarding marriage.

This is in reaction to the recent controversy involving Moroccan player Achraf Hakimi, whose wife, Hiba Abouk, allegedly filed for divorce and wanted half of his property, but received nothing since his assets were in his mother’s name.

Nedu has stated on his social media profile that “marriage is dead.”

He said, “I no know if una don see that video or the message or the pictures of that PSG footballer wey them dey call Hakimi wey e be say him be 24-year-old and his wife dey ask for divorce. And the divorce wey she dey ask for, she dey talk say 50 percent of wettin the guy get make them give her.

“You see say marriage don die? In fact, if people believe anything for marriage before, the thing wey dey go on now with marriage for inside the whole world, people no want enter marriage again. Na most women, some of una, na e dey make some people no want enter marriage because una don turn the thing to poverty alleviation scheme.”

This speech drew fury and condemnation from his fans and followers, many of whom perceived it as a denigration of the institution of marriage.

Following the backlash, Nedu has now taken to his social media platform to apologise for his remarks. In a statement, he wrote, “Sincere apologies to those hurt by my Hakimi video. It’s totally taken out of context. Regardless, I apologise. Na una dey pay me a salary, so whatever doesn’t sit well with y’all won’t be entertained by me. God bless Una. Love and light.”

Some have praised Nedu for accepting responsibility for his statements, while others believe his original remark was in poor taste.

Notwithstanding the controversies surrounding him, Nedu has a significant fan base and is one of Nigeria’s most renowned comedians and media celebrities. His apology serves as a reminder of the significance of being conscious of our words and the impact they can have on others.
