The pair of controversial media personality, Kemi Olunloyo and stand-up comedian Seyi Law have both decided to settle over a lingering rift between them which became public after Kemi called his daughter (Tiwa) obese.
Kemi took to her Instagram page, sharing a video of her showing a picture of Tiwa saying she had forgiven her dad and noted that she will not taint her (Tiwa’s) childhood with bickering and hate.
“Special message for Tiwa @seyilaw1’s daughter… Seyi blocked me after the beef started yet he talks about me to all media and I can’t read his postings about me except on Lilian’s @lnstablog9ja or way too many tagging me,” Kemi wrote.
The blogger also added that; “Seyi you are now free to go in peace. May God bless Tiwa. She will read this one day. When I become 73yo, she will be 20yo on the internet. I will not taint her childhood with bickering and hate. I respect myself as a social critic. Nigerians do not understand that concept asking a Journalist to contact celebrities privately. It is not done. We use public figures to illustrate many things. Obesity leads to high blood pressure, Diabetes, heart disease and more. It will not be in your portion IJN.”
After reading her message, Seyi Law also took to Instagram penning a long message in reply to Kemi.
He said he is happy that both of them can now put the saga behind them and also informed that he is sorry for saying so many negative things about her during their heated exchange on social media at the time.
Seyi Law wrote; “Aunty Kemi, I am happy we can put this matter to rest and I must sincerely say, I have no personal issue with you except for Tiwaloluwa. When you release your first post, I liked it until the blogs blew it out. I never for once mentioned your children in any of my post and your PH issue, I said I was happy at first, but realised we all make mistakes and deserve forgiveness. The same blog made it look like I was mocking you and then you know what happened from there. I am sorry I said too many things and do hope you forgive.
“If you ever heard anything after this, trust me they were interviews I granted before this month. I am glad we can lay this to rest. I wish you well in your Gubernatorial quest and hope we can always be happy for each other. Thanks for your concerns. God bless you.”
In the heat of their rift, Kemi condemned Seyi Law for his supposed jubilation over her arrest and detention during her defamation case, calling him an “imbecile of a comedian”.
In his reply, Seyi came hard on Kemi, saying she ranted like a “rabies infested dog” and was only being jealous because she wished that she could have a lovely face to wake up to, and go back home to see like Tiwa, his daughter, hence, her bitterness towards his baby.
