Comedian AY Responds to Backlash Over National Honour Conferment by Former Nigerian President

…By Larry John for TDPel Media. Nigerian comedian and filmmaker, Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY, has addressed the backlash he received after accepting a national honour conferred by former Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari.


The conferment took place just 24 hours before Buhari handed over leadership to Tinubu.

In response to the criticism, AY took to Twitter to explain his perspective.

Country Over President or Political Party

AY emphasized that those urging him to reject the award were missing a crucial point.

He stressed that receiving a national conferment is one of the highest forms of recognition for contributing to the development of the nation.

The Significance of National Honours
