Comedian, Dee One, was dragged online during the week after he uploaded a video in which he argued that Nigerians did not deserve to have 24-hour electricity supply.However, he told Sunday Scoop that he was just joking.
“It was sarcasm. There is nobody that doesn’t need electricity. Those bashing me for that post are very stupid because I’m not the government. If they want to bash anybody, it should be the government.
I always tell people to use their gifts to address serious issues. Poor electricity supply is a very big problem in Nigeria and it’s part of the things setting us back. If people can channel their frustrations to the government with the same vigour (they attacked me online), I believe things will be much better. It’s only in Nigeria that we take comedians seriously and we take politicians as jokers.
