Popular comic actor, Ayodele Ajewole aka Woli Agba, on Friday slammed individuals who criticized skit makers over a visit to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Several Nigerian content creators visited the Vice President on Thursday where they discussed plans for youths in the country.

This act irked Nigerians, especially the youths, who questioned why the comedians who should speak truth to people in power were dinning with politicians.

However, another notable comedian, Debo Adedayo aka Mr. Macaroni, was conspicuously absent at the meeting.

Mr. Macaroni’s absence from the forum fuelled rumours that he was not invited because of his constant criticism of the government.

The comedian was physically assaulted during the #OccupyLagos protest in February.

He has remained one of the most outspoken social media content creators in recent times.

Woli Agba, who was surprised at the criticism that trailed the skit makers’ trip to the seat of power, took to his Instagram page to make clarification on the visit to the nation’s number two citizen.

Here is what he wrote:
