Popular comedian and activist, Debo Adedayo, popularly known as Mr. Macaroni, has said that regardless of criticism over the styles adopted for his comedy sketches, he won’t stop using women for his content.
Apart from female content, the sketch creator noted that his other comedy series will also continue unabated, adding that he is open to constructive criticism.
Mr Macaroni’s clarification may not be unrelated to recent concerns raised on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, by some Nigerians that the comedian’s skit was always female-based, lacking diversity .
But in a series of tweets on his Twitter page on Sunday, the comedian reaffirmed that his “freaky-freaky” streak isn’t just about his stuff and so he won’t be stopping the show because of the backlash.
He tweeted: “To whom it may concern: Mr. Macaroni will not stop using women in his content. Thank you for understanding. You do well
“Furthermore, Mr. Macaroni won’t stop depicting real-life situations in his content. All of Mr. Macaroni’s content is also open to constructive criticism. We won’t always agree on everything. But we can always do better. Thank you ❤️
“Let me take this opportunity to address those who are always pushing the narrative that most of my content is with women. The first thing you need to know is; it won’t stop!! I play other characters Why say na only the one with a woman you are looking at??
“Serial Philanderer Series; In-law series; Professor HardLife series; Politician Series; Debo Series and Social Issues Series.
“These are all different series and content that portray our reality. So don’t think for a second that I’m going to stop doing weird stuff because of you.
