Instagram comedian Greene Apakagi aka Taaooma has apologised for her comment regarding her lastest visit to vice president Yemi Osinbajo.
The comedian had slammed those who questioned the reason for her visit to the presidential villa on Wednesday. She was also called out by rights activist Rinu Oduala who said she misled her fans into thinking she had their interest at heart.
In a lengthy post tweet on Friday, Taaooma apologised for her rude response to her fans, explaining that her gadgets were temporarily taken from her and other comedians who visited the vice president, thereby, preventing her from recording her conversation with the vice president.
While apologising for all that happened due to the issue, Taaooma added that she achieved her aims when she spoke to the vice president about issues affecting the youths.
Part of the tweet read: “I also declined at first as many others. But then, at the die minute, I gave it a rethink: What if I pull a Trojan? Gain access to the statehouse with this skit award thingy and say my mind on hot issues. unfortunately for us, after passing through many security checks all our electronic devices were collected.
“I couldn’t even go live or record videos. All I did was do what others didn’t want to. And trust me, the VP himself was shocked when I started speaking about those issues as that wasn’t his expectations. I’m really sorry if I have offended anyone by going that way but I achieved my aim.I said all I could straight to the VP. The VP’s media team were in charge of photos and videos. I might have fully declined if I knew that I won’t be able to go in with my camera or phone. The pictures were taken after were sent to the skit awards pr team.
“I hope when the video is ready, everyone will know I’m saying nothing but the truth and my conscience is clear.
once again, I apologise deeply to everyone who felt disappointed.”
In another tweet, the skit maker wrote: “Hey guys I’m apologsing once again. I had clear intentions and nothing more.”
