Lagos - Comedian Akpororo has apologized after making a distasteful joke on rape during the AY Live show last week.
Akpororo took to instagram to publicly apologize for the joke, he said:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, my attention has been drawn to one of the jokes I did recently.
I want to take this space to formally apologize to all who have been offended by the joke especially the womenfolk. It was never my intent to put something as offensive as rape on a pedestal.

I hold women in the highest esteem and this is drawn from the love and care I have enjoyed from my mum and sisters over the years and will never promote anything that would be detrimental to their wellbeing. I was only trying to crack up my audience.
PLEASE FORGIVE that same Akpororo that you have helped to grow in the industry."
