“She was not pressured to make any statements” – Nedu retaliates as he issues strong warnings to Yvonne Jegede

Media personality Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, better known as Nedu, has slammed Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede over their disagreement on podcast results.

Recall that Yvonne Jegede’s statement about Yul Edochie’s polygamist nature sparked outrage amongst the fans of the actor’s first wife and women who found her comments offensive.

During a podcast session with Nedu and the Honest Bunch crew, Yvonne Jegede made a comment about netizens supporting Regina Daniel’s billionaire husband, Ned Nwoko, but criticizing Yul Edochie for taking a second wife.

Following the backlash that trolled the explosive sit-and-talk show, Jegede apologized to her fans and May Edochie, whom many believed was incited.

However, this apology did not sit well with Nedu, who criticized the actress for not owning up to her words and apologising.

While responding to Nedu, Yvonne Jegede spilled about the times the show host and content creator was always on her DM, telling her how much he liked her and also requesting that she hang out with him.

Nedu retaliated by issuing a press statement contradicting Yvonne Jegede’s claims that the show was not based on her new movie.

He acknowledged the public outcry over the actress’s personal thoughts and made it clear that she was not pressured to make any statements during the show.

He also stated that the show’s producers are not responsible for any opinions or positions shared by Yvonne Jegede during the show.

While urging her to desist from name calling him, Nedu disclosed that Yvonne was the one who reached out to their team to publicize her new movie.

“It has come to our attention that a recent guest on The Honest Bunch podcast, Yvonne Jegede, has resorted to publishing insulting and defamatory material on social media, following what appears to be public outcry against personal thoughts and positions shared by said guest on the show.

We would like to make it clear that Yvonne Jegede was not pressured to make any statements on the podcast, and that neither Nedu nor the producers of The Honest Bunch, nor Glitch Africa Studio, takes any responsibility for personal thoughts and positions shared by Yvonne Jegede.

We would also like to state clearly that Yvonne Jegede appeared on The Honest Bunch as part of her publicity drive for her upcoming movie. While this was a paid-appearance, it does not in any way afford Yvonne Jegede the right to defame or slander Nedu or the producers of The Honest Bunch.

We strongly advise Yvonne Jegede in good faith to desist from further aggravation, personal attacks, name-calling and vituperation.
