Last week, Kate Henshaw, a popular Nollywood actress called out comedian Akpororo for using her name and image to promote his forthcoming show, Akpororo vs Akpororo, without seeking her approval.
To express disgust at his action, Kate went on social media and put up a post where she issued the comedian 48 hours ultimatum to apologise and withdraw her name and image from all his publicity materials.
Sensing trouble was lurking, Akpororo made a public apology to the actress on the social media. “Good evening ma, before anything else I just want to say I am very sorry ma for the misunderstanding. I am so sorry for not following up after our last conversation about my show when you were out of the country the other day. I will never disrespect you or even take you for granted for any reason, I respect you so much ma, please pardon me ma. Thanks and God bless you ma,” he wrote.
In a telephone conversation, Kate who spoke to Sunday Scoop, through her manager, Funke Kuti, said she has forgiven Akpororo and will attend his show .
According to Funke Kuti, Kate is a big sister to Akpororo, so she has forgiven him. “The apology has been accepted. It was a misunderstanding. She has forgiven him. She will be at the show. One thing Kate does is, she supports and encourage up-and-coming entertainers. She is a big sister to him.”
