Comedy, music and movies used to be works of art before they crossed from “the Abroad” and entered Nigeria. Now, anybody with an Itel 3310 will just record himself doing nonsense and say it is stand-up comedy. We have not even recovered from the video of Ogusbaba disgracing us upandan with BBC when he was promoting animalistic behaviour towards gay people; now we have another one releasing his toxic nonsense to encourage boys in the art of rape.
Just so we’re clear: Rape is not African! It is not Nigerian, and it is not even human! Anyone who promotes rape culture is borderline rapist/nut job.
Anyway, back to Babadebaba. His video has a story line of a girl who “eats” a guys money; enjoys the comfort of his house and bed. He uses this as justification for forcefully having sex with her, claiming that it is not rape, but the only thing that can be expected from a girl spending the night at a man’s house.
This “comedian” creates the right background for people who are sympathetic towards rape. Listen, awa mo yin!! We know you! Plus the rapist ooo, plus the sympathisers ooo, plus the comedian who makes a similar story plot ooo, plus those who see the video and support it by giggling away…we see you all! All are criminals and have no place in sane societies. Rape cannot and must not be justified under any pretext, you should not even indirectly find it sensible.
It is quite sad that one would find a society where such videos or publications are allowed to see the light of day. It is even more annoying that when these public figures are reprimanded, they respond with hogwash apologies that do not reflect any sincere understanding of the dangerous ideologies they are peddling.
BABADEBABA’S APOLOGY FOR “RAPE NONSENSE”
I want to personally apologise to those who find my “Rape Nonsense” video offensive.
I didn’t mean to project RAPE but the MORAL aspect of the video but it’s unfortunate that nobody cares about morals any more.
The video is about a girl who visited a guy who is not a pastor nor her blood relative and she stayed in his house for a week spending his money and sleeping in the same bed with him, denied him sex and he raped her.
I intended passing a passage that most men can’t control their sexual urge so in order not to get raped, don’t visit a guy u can’t sleep with. instead of Nigerians to see the MORAL LESSON, what they saw was RAPE because RAPE IS SENSITIVE. so we can’t say our mind again… na wa o.
With the reactions from the video, I can now understand why we have wayward children everywhere.. most times I go to club and I see a 16yr old girl smoking weed with tattoos all over her body and she still stays under the same roof with her parents without being beaten. I stay alone but I can never try having a tattoo because my father will kill me. as old as I am with my exposure , I don’t smoke nor drink just because my father will not be happy with me if he finds out.. u can confirm from any comedian.
It took me this long to apologise because some women organisations saw the skit and instead of them officially writing a letter(inbox), they were busy twitting and insulting me on my wall and I said to myself “if this is really an organisation, they should be organised enough to inbox me”. None of them even followed me on Instagram. they were just coming to insult and go so I know that they may not see this apology because they are not following me and I will not tag them.
I removed the video not because of the NGOs who went about insulting me but for those good people who took it upon themselves to call and inbox me when they don’t even belong to any NGO on rape matters.
I think the women NGOs should bring up programs to sensitise our girls on how to avoid being raped IN THE CONTEXT OF THIS SKIT.
ON THIS NOTE I WANT SAY “I AM VERY SORRY”
Ugh. The apology is actually worse than the offending video, if that were possible!!
We need to reject these people with all vehemence, Babadebaba should not be engaged in conversations. His blatant disregard for humans and women should be met with cold reaction. He does not deserve an audience until a full apology is obtained.
One Ladiispeaks on Twitter shamed our people last week, with his uncouth tweet at Michelle Obama about her picture with the White House Dogs. Awon omo adojutini gbogbo! Shameful lot!
He also came out with an apology that smells like rat poop and most of us let the matter slip. This same ladispeaks is one of the few who have publicly endorsed the video by Babadebaba. By the way, he’s changed his Twitter handle in order to evade the shitstorm that is surely coming his way. So should you wish to troll him >> @Ladiispeaks << don’t say we don’t do nothin’ for ya!
These “artistes and celebrities” are a remorseless and uncivilised lot.
