How Supporting Peter Obi During 2023 Elections Caused Problems For Me – Comedian AY


During his AY Live Easter Sunday show, Nigerian comedian Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY, opened up about the challenges he faced after publicly supporting Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi in the 2023 election.

AY explained that his decision to endorse Obi was driven by a desire for positive change in Nigeria, rather than political motivations. However, he faced significant pressure to use his platform to speak out during the campaign.

The comedian revealed that following his public support for Obi, his Lagos mansion mysteriously caught fire, leading him to believe it was a consequence of his political stance.

Reflecting on his experience, AY emphasized the power and influence of the government, urging Nigerians to recognize the authority they wield and the potential consequences of challenging it.
