The YouTuber took to his YouTube channel on Wednesday to address the backlash he received following the interview, expressing remorse for any offense caused.

He acknowledged that he agreed to the interview with the intention of shedding light on the challenges faced by the black community, both in Nigeria and the UK.

“If what you have seen being circulated has made you uncomfortable in any way at all, I am sorry, deeply and sincerely sorry.

“And why do I say sorry, because for whatever pain that you feel, I feel even more, because if I meet you in person if we were able to sit in the same space, probably engage, there is nothing in my heart for you other than love, progress and positive support. People who know me in the world know that this is what I have got.

“There is no other motivation than to grant an interview to speak on the challenges that we genuinely face as a black community back at home and also in the UK.”
