Comedian, Alibaba responds to allegations of “dining” with politicians
By Patricia Uyeh,
Nigerian King of comedy, Ali Baba who was spotted at Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s daughter’s wedding recently and he was called out by fans, who referred to him as hypocrite.
Responding to this, Alibaba said that nobody has the right to call him out because he is first a standup comedian, talk show host, actor, ideas consultant and businessman, which means his business is to provide any of the requested services mentioned.
Taking to Instagram, he wrote;
“I have addressed this issue before but it seems some people’s stupidity or ignorance is on a dynamic climb. Let me first say that I am a service provider. I am an MC, Stand-Up Comedian, talk show host, actor, ideas consultant and businessman. Which means my business is to provide any of the requested services listed. That said I am a Nigerian and a vocal one too.
“I use any platform I am on to talk about the things I observe and experience. I have not stopped being a citizen. So whatever party is in power, can use my services and get served when they step out of line. That cannot change. So I was an MCee at the Sarakis wedding. And the idiots woke up to their refrain again.
“There he goes again dining and wining with the people he criticizes. Hypocrite!!” Wow! The wedding was not covered by photographers? Were there no caterers? Were there no event planners? Did they not use an airline to fly into Lagos? How about the decorators? There was media coverage.”
