- Comedian and actor Mr Macaroni has finally spoken up amid growing outrage against his colleagues for visiting VP Yemi Osinbajo
- The entertainer explained that he has tried to stay mum on the matter but his conscience swayed him into speaking out
- Macaroni said he got an invite like his colleagues but decided to decline the invitation because he is unhappy with leaders of the country
- He, however, stressed that his colleagues should not be crucified for making an attempt to drive agitations for positive change
Nigerian comedian, actor and skit maker, Debo Adebayo aka Mr Macaroni has finally eased the minds of supporters and shared his two cents regarding the visit of his colleagues to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that several comic stars under the aegis of Nigerian Skits Industry Awards (NSIA) were in Abuja to present Osinbajo with an award.
However, after photos surfaced on social media, Nigerian youths were quick to lash out at the young comedians for seemingly back-pedalling and dining with those in power.
Noticeably missing among those who visited was Mr Macaroni, and in his reaction post, the humour merchant said he isn’t aware of a skit makers association.

The entertainer assured concerned parties that he was never sidelined while disclosing that he also got an invitation to show up in Abuja by the organizers of an award ceremony. He, however, made it clear that the invitation was declined.
"The reason I declined is simple. As a citizen, I’m not happy with our leaders and I do not want to associate with them. It’s ok if others believe that sitting with the government will change certain things and decide to try it out. I don’t think they should be crucified for that," he wrote.

I believe they went to demand for better governance
Speaking further on the matter, Mr Macaroni stated that those in power are aware of the agitations of the youths and as such, a sit-down will make little or no difference.
Mr Macaroni said while he doesn’t know full details of the meeting his colleagues had, he believes that they made demands for better governance.
"I don’t know what was discussed in that meeting as I wasn’t there. But I don’t believe that those went would go there to say anything other than demanding for better governance and leadership as we have all been doing this while."
