Nigerian Comedians are known for their no filter and jabs which even Artists in the Nigeria Music Industry have been victims of.
Most times these jabs could have resulted in physical altercations sometimes
Recently, the world was thrown into shock after Popular actor, Will Smith slapped Comedian Chris Rock during the 2022 Oscars.
This event has resulted in us at Mp3bullet.ng making an article of the few times Nigerian Comedians have thrown shades at Nigeria Artists.
- Nigerian Comedians who are also into Music
- Nigerian Artists who debuted their acting skills in a comedy skit
Yung6ix and Akpororo
In 2017, trouble broke out between Nigerian Rapper, Yung6ix and Comedian Akpororo.
Expectedly, the joke did not go down well with Yung6ix, who took to his Instagram page to write, “This life sha…Akpororo that I see as a big brother hating on me. You’ll never know who wants to see you fall. God is with us.”
While the rapper made a social media post to douse the tension, his then DJ, DJ Timmy mouthed off and threatened the comedian not to come to the south side and he seemed to be beating war drums.
He also accused Akpororo’s wife of a sex slave back, although he later apologized in 2020 after a falling out with Yung6ix, claiming that he didn’t know the Comedian’s wife and was making the claims up just to tarnish her image.

Simi and MC Morris
In 2021, Canadian based comedian, MC Morris called out Simi on Instagram in a lengthy post themed, ‘You Bit The Finger That Fed You’, claiming he brought the singer to the limelight and was displeased with the way she turned her back on him.
The comedian took to his Instastory to allege that he sacrificed his time and financial resources to make sure Simi gains popularity because he believed in her.
However, Simi took to Instagram to warn netizens who believe everything they see on the internet. She cooked up a story about an accident she claimed to have witnessed and ended the post by telling fans that it wasn’t true just like MC Morris’s post.
Aramide and Ebiye
Instagram comedian, Ebiye has found himself in a lot of controversial issues over the span of his career. In 2018, he was dragged for making some distasteful comments after Singer, Aramide.
Aramide won the Headies Award for the Best Alternative song category in 2018 beating artists like Adekunle Gold, Nonso Amade, Johnny Drille, Reminisce, to clinch the prize.
Reacting to the Award, Ebiye shared a picture of Aramide receiving the award, commenting that she may have slept with someone to get it.
Since realising just how big a blunder he committed, Ebiye later took to social media to apologise for his post, pleading for forgiveness.
He even commented on the post shared by Instablo9ja, apologising all over again and praising Aramide for her remarkable work.

Davido and Funnybone
In 2020, Cynthia Morgan dropped a shocking revelation about how her career was destroyed by Jude Okoye, her former record label boss.
Davido was one of the persons who reacted and extended an olive branch by offering to be on a song with her despite the dancehall singer calling him a [email protected] boy years ago.
Later, both singers announced that their collaboration was already in the works.
However, Comedian, Funnybone found it strange that no one reached out to her all these years. He then took to his Instagram story to share his opinion about people reaching out to Cynthia Morgan.
“How come nobody asked after Cynthia Morgan all these years? Even the colleagues she had something with. Suddenly everybody is now shouting Cynthia call me call me, Las las we are all on our own o, God I dey your hand oo. Amen.”
Davido responded saying the most important thing is that she has spoken and people are ready to help her get back to her feet. “The most important thing is that she has spoken and people are ready to help and she can be able to rewrite her steps and have another chance! THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS !! …”

2Baba and Gordons
In 2017, 2Baba backed out of the One Voice Nigeria protest he had earlier organized and Comedian, Gordon had said the singer cannot express himself succinctly, hence, he shouldn’t have attempted to rally Nigerians to protest.
He said music was the only way 2baba could express himself and as such, he should have used that medium to protest against government policies.
Speaking in an interview with GoldmyneTV, Gordons described 2baba as the “only illiterate who can sing correctly.”
After a Series of criticisms later, Gordons put out a video saying he had called the musician to apologise.
The comedian said he was only doing his job and never intended to “insult” 2baba.
He said: “I just did an SMS of an apology to 2face and his family because sometimes, people misunderstand why we do what we do.
“I’m just a comedian, I’m just like a gynaecologist who’s doing his job. It doesn’t matter who comes, I will do my job.
“This is not intended to insult 2face or his family. He has even said it before in his songs. But I understand the situation we are in and I felt that was a little bit below the belt and I had to apologise. This wasn’t intended to bring a fight.”
