Seyi Awolowo has gone out to clarify his sentiments, just days after apologizing for his rude and insulting remarks against women. During a recent live video interview, he argued that his statements had been “taken out of context” and questioned people’s opinions on the subject.
Seyi Awolowo had previously been chastised for remarks deemed insulting and offensive to women. He apologized in reaction to the backlash. During the live video interview, he did, however, express a wish to clarify on his motives behind such words.
While he acknowledged the need to apologize for any negative impact his statements may have had, Seyi Awolowo also stated that he believed the context of his words had been misunderstood. He further explained that he felt strongly about addressing the behavior of certain individuals he had referred to as “badly behaved women.”
In his own words, Seyi Awolowo stated, “I think I’m old school and I was raised a certain way. I don’t think I should compromise it for anything in the world, especially trying to make excuses for people.”
This suggests that he still stands by his initial sentiments, though he regrets any offense his words may have caused.
Seyi Awolowo also spoke on his respect for women, highlighting his close relationships with them. He mentioned that he was raised by a woman, namely his mother, and that he counted many female friends among his closest associates. These connections, he explained, were the basis for his belief that his comments had been misconstrued.
