Renowned professor and educationist, Prof Akindele Adetoye has apologized for calling music star-turned-activist, 2face Idibia an illiterate over his planed nationwide protest.
Mr. Idibia had few days ago announced to lead other Nigerians on a national protest against the ongoing hardship in the nation caused by the economic recession.
Irked by Idibia's announcement, Prof Adetoye took to his social media pages where he slammed the singer for organizing anti-Buhari protest even when he could not control his third leg.
He wrote, "You are a bloody illiterate. You had sex with all manners of girls without using condoms. You impregnated them and made babies all over the place. You now want to lead protest against the government because of lack of governance! Have you governed your own personal life? Charity, they say begins at home. Nonsense!"
His statement did not go down well with many Nigerians, especially the fans of the singer who came hard on Adetoye, describing him as an 'educated illiterate.'
The professor, Tuesday night pulled down the post and apologized to 2face and the Nigerian community for branding the singer 'illiterate.'
He wrote, "Good day brethren, I put up an update yesterday that incurred the wrath of some of my friends and the population at large for what some considered its harshness to another member of the Nigerian community.
"In hindsight I believe I was indeed harsh. I believe I am wrong to have come at him in the manner in which I did. He's in love with our nation like I am and like the rest of us. It was in finding a lasting remedy to our national malaise that I believe my passion took the best of me, and it was in that regard that I erred.
"I apologize for that and I apologize to those whom my update affected in any manner. I was wrong and I am sorry. Thank you and God bless you all."
