#LagosDecides: Mr. Macaroni Massively Defeats Sanwo-Olu, Wins Polling Unit For Labour Party

Nollywood actor Adams Kehinde, also known as Lege Miami, has been sued by Nigerian Skit maker, Mr Macaroni over defamatory statements.

This comes after Lege Miami via his social media handle made defamatory and derogatory comments about the comedian following his message to Nigerian youths on the 1st of March.

Recall, Macaroni had urged the youths to remain united and not get triggered by the inter tribal war promoted by politicians “who will always be friends.”

Reacting to the comedian’s statement, the actor took to his Instagram page to call out the skit maker for trying to paint President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government in a bad light.

He also questioned Macaroni for giving out the wrong information and always involving himself in youth affairs when he’s not a youth.

In his words, “Debo what’s your problem, ki lo fe. Your Oga don do one, you wan start another thing. If our government is no good, the Hausas wouldn’t support us. Some parts of Igbos supported us and this is Lagos State. You are giving them the wrong information.

“Mr devil what’s your information, can’t you leave the youths alone? Are you the only youth? You are even older than me so you aren’t a youth anymore. You are old, stop all the things you are doing. [sic]”
