AY Makun Responds to Seun Kuti’s Allegations

Well-known stand-up comedian AY Makun has reacted to the allegations leveled at him by controversial afrobeat artist Seun Kuti.

Seun Kuti’s Allegations:

In the early hours of yesterday, Seun Kuti made some allegations against AY comedian as he disclosed why he threw a party when the comedian’s house caught fire earlier this year.

The Alleged Insult:

According to Seun Kuti, AY made several jokes about him and his daughter, referring to his daughter as a dog.

Seun’s Statement: Seun’s statement: “They said I laughed when AY Makun’s house burned down, but if you follow me often, you’d know that the day his house caught fire, I went live without delay.”

AY’s Response:

Reacting to the allegations, AY stated in a video that he never referred to the daughter of the artist as a dog. He explained that he uses trending issues for most of his jokes and that the video Seun referred to as the skit in which he called his daughter a dog is untrue.

AY’s Explanation:

According to AY, he used the Hilda Baci dog-eating issue for a skit when she was called out by a dog lover for cooking and eating dogs as a delicacy.

Throwing Shade:

AY further threw a subtle shade at Seun Kuti, stating that his late father, Fela, used to mock politicians during his days as a way of creating content; hence, his style of comedian is a style he learned from the artist’s father.
