Nollywood actress, Rita Edochie, recently took to her Instagram story with a video of a young man who bared his mind as regards her recent issue with the late comedian, Ada Jesus.
Edochie expressed appreciation to the young man for speaking the truth and capturing her mind and that of her family in his submission.
The individual started off by calling out youths who no longer have respect for older folks simply because they can freely express themselves on social media.
According to him, a lot of people wouldn’t have taken kindly to the comedian if their mothers were also made to go through the amount of ridicule she put Edochie through.
"If it’s not for the hypocrisy of most of you Nigerians, if you placed your mother in that woman’s shoes, if that little girl of that age, would come out to say all those manners of things about your mother, tarnish her image, for someone of that calibre…
"Imagine Ada Jesus coming out to say that your mum comes to ask her to connect her to men, how would you feel?"
He went on to highlight some notable achievements of Edochie while noting that they are things she all achieved before Ada Jesus emerged in the industry.
In a different portion of the video, the young man said it was inevitable for Edochie to pour out her anger at Ada Jesus when she came to beg for forgiveness.
He, however, said Edochie did the right thing by sleeping over her anger and returning to say she has forgiven the ailing comedian.
The young man added that both Rita Edochie and Prophet Odumeje are humans first before their status which is why they reacted the way they did.

From indications, the video was recorded before the passing of the young comedian.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the veteran actress reacted to the sad news of Ada Jesus' passing despite the backlash she received from Nigerians.
The actress posted a five-minute sermon video where a Winners Chapel pastor preached about the importance of prayer because life is warfare and not fun fare.
According to the pastor in the video, ‘only the violent taketh it’ because violence is the key for triumphant living.
