Watch him speak below,
The lawsuit is coming after Lege Miami called out Mr. Macaroni for his message to Nigerian youths.
The skit maker had advised youths not to engage in tribal wars and let politicians use them as a tool of destruction. In a video shared on his Instagram page, the activist urged the youths to remain united and not trigger intertribal chaos over politicians “who will always be friends.”
However, reacting to the video, Lege took to his Instagram page to call out the skit maker.
He questioned why Mr. Macaroni was always involving himself in youth matters and accused him of being against Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
“Debo what’s your problem, ki lo fe. Your Oga don do one, you wan start another thing. If our government no good, the Hausas wouldn’t support us. Some parts of Igbos supported us and this is Lagos State. You are giving them 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 “. Lege said in part.
Rather than engage in a war of words with Lege, Mr. Macaroni simply sued him for defamation through his lawyers.
