The comedian AY responds to rumors on the birthday letter he sent to his “son”

Ayo Makun, a well-known actor and comedian, has spoken his thoughts over the regrettable direction social media has taken lately.

This occurs after the comedian sparked a number of online rumors by wishing a 17-year-old child, whom he addressed as his son, a happy birthday.

Internet users deluged AY’s comments area with disparaging words, questioning how he could have a son outside of marriage, without bothering to take action to find out who the boy is.

It was learned hours later that the “son” that AY had celebrated was actually his nephew, who was the older sister’s son.


In response to the derogatory and disgusting remarks, AY finally stated that social media has become a forum for people to show off their ignorance.

AY said, “It’s funny how people are quick to believe gullible remarks of a foolish person as opposed to the wise one,” in his lengthy statement.

He wrote…

“Social media is now the new king Kong, where feelings are now more important than objective facts. If a foolish person comes out and says something that unlocks the feeling of an audience, he or she gets praised. But if a wise person comes and says something that is contrary to how people want to feel, he or she gets persecuted.


Social media is a place where you dont need formal training to know how to be a fool. You just have to be born foolish and be free enough to express your foolishness.


It’s a place that gives you confidence even in your ignorance. It is the only place where you can freely express the nothingness of your not knowing close anything before your interferences.


The funny part is that a lot of people carry their ignorance with a lot of class and a lot of confidence based on what they see or feel.


But we must also understand that each community is entitled to have a fool or a community of fools that recognizes and accepts the foolishness of others as a brand to submit to. Such foolishness does not stop you from being a man or woman. It does not even stop you from not having fans and followers cut across the strata of different foolish endeavors.


Having said that, more foolish people will continue to evaluate their performances in the space by creating sensationalism and negative viral content for the entertainment pleasures of their different audiences. But as long as foolish individuals do not care about the stress, pain, anxiety, loneliness, and depression they bring you, the more it is also very important for them to enjoy the consequences of their actions.
