Singer Yhemolee apologises to Nasboi over insensitive comment



Singer Idowu also known as Yhemolee has apologised to skit maker, Nasboi, over his comments on Isbae U podcast, ‘Curiosity Made Me Ask’.

The singer on the podcast had jokingly warned Isbae U not to go into the music industry like his colleagues because he has no voice for it.

He had criticised skit makers who are venturing into music. He had danced and sang Nasboi’s song ‘Umbrella’ featuring Wande Coal while making his point.

In response, Nasboi described the comment as insensitive. He said he respected Yhemolee and would not have expected that his colleague would try to destroy his art over ‘clout’.

His post read, “That’s no fucking PR from Yhemo men! I respect him and I don’t need to be disrespected that way. 

“My colleagues did their best in trying to promote my music and some other colleague is here talking my shit down and you think is PR? I don’t chase stupid clout.”

Yhemolee responded in a statement he released on his social media. 

The statement read, “Hi brother, First off I’m sure from the first time we met up till today, we have never crossed each other, and we have mutual respect for each other. I have supported your craft and featured in some of your contents. I totally respect your Talent and I can never water it down.

“Oh well if you felt some sort of way about a reference made in the content with baeU, you could have reached out to me like I’m doing right now and you probably would have had a clearer understanding or baeU himself would have made you understand the direction of the content with him.

“As against the tweet you just made, in which I take no offense even though I was never expecting such from you. But this is me saying I’m sorry about it and I hope it eases your mind and it would never repeat itself again. The content direction was more of sacarcm , banter and humor.

“I threw serious bants to baeU as well just as he did to me as well. Nothing was said from a place or resentment or disrespect or whatever and again I am sorry. I love your music, as a matter of fact I did help to share it on my socials as well. I enjoy it at my work place and i mentioned in the same video with baeU how much of a beautiful song it is.

“The banter was about comic acts tilting towards music, I never knew you to be a prolific musician or had history with music until after this song dropped. Forgive my ignorance. Thank you.”
