Seyi Awolowo, an evicted Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate, has rocked the internet once more as he retracts his misogynistic statement.
Seyi Awolowo revealed in an interview with Olorisupergal that his statements were taken out of context just days after crying on Ebuka’s show and pleading for forgiveness from Nigerians.
Though he has apologized, he believes that his statements were misconstrued and that many people reacted without fully comprehending what he was saying.
He probed Nigerians asking if they listened to what he said, or took his words out of context to support their motion.
“Did they actually listen to what I said? Was it taken out of context to support their motion or to be misunderstood? Or is it that they just wanted to respond or did they understand what I was trying to say? Yes, I do apologize for the negativity that was been brought out from my statement but really”.
This is coming just hours after he shed tears as he publicly apologized for his misogynistic statement.
During his media rounds with Ebuka Uchendu, he expressed his regret at his statement as he noted how apologizing is the only thing he can do for now. See video here.
While many agreed that his words were taken out of context, others blasted him for switching things up and trying to make himself a victim.
