“The idea of comedy is to create humour out of tragedy”- I Go Dye on AY’s Joke about #BBNaija’s TBoss



Comedian AY has been the focus of comments on social media for making a joke out of the sexual assault on #BBNaija’s TBoss by a fellow housemate Kemen.

Earlier today AY issued an apology to TBoss saying it wasn’t his intention to make her feel that uncomfortable as he has a wife and a daughter and will never support any action that will promote rape or sexual assault.

Comedian, I Go Dye has now taken to Instagram page to say a few words about the matter, saying the idea of comedy is to create humor out of tragedy, he also said he wonders why people go out of their way to make an issue when there’s none instead of focusing on the challenges that need our immediate attention.

He wrote:

The effect of any joke is to evoke laughter which is a practice embraced worldwide.
The idea of comedy is to create humour out of tragedy. Our problem in this country is that we act like saints in the eyes of those who still pretend to be saints,i am not saints and not trying to be,the truth is that the only Saints I know is St. Moritz which you can still get the fake,the joke on BBNaija Housemates by @aycomedian was just to entertain without any form of malice. So I wonder why we go out to make issues out of none issues when we are bedevilled with various challenges that need attention.

    So sexual assault/molestation is a none issue? Who the heck are these people for goodness sake? This is why it is highly important we will not keep quiet on shouting you detractors down. Sexual assault is NOT a none issue. And if you think it’s only women it happens to, you need a second think coming. Many of you men were molested by housegirls. Many of you were preyed on by men as well. Nigerian men need to start confessing, so they can collect statistics on you guys. My hypothesis is there is a link to your adult hypersexual demonic behaviors and what you were introduced to as kids sexually. Sexual assault and harassment is one of the most important challenges we face in that country. In 2015, premium times reported no less than than 10 girls are raped daily in Rivers State.“Usually, the victims don’t report to the police or their parents for fear of victimization,” In a 2014 study conducted by Badejoko et al in Ile Ife, majority of the survivors (62%) knew their assailant(s). Neighbors were the commonest perpetrators identified (28.2%) and the assailants’ house was the commonest location (39.4%). Weapons were involved in 29.6% of cases and various injuries were identified in 28.2% of the survivors. The fact that we have very senile law enforcers and legislators does not mean this is not a criminal offense. It is not a joke and we will not give up until you get the message.

    It was not a joke. Your defense is weak. He advocated forgiveness for the guy, for understanding his ‘situation’. He was not trying to pull out a comedic lesson. He made himself an advocate for Kemen who didn’t even ask for his help.

    So I Go Dye, take several seats and let him apologise.

    This idea of I dey for your back gidigba is rubbish. Call out your friends when they go out of line or say nothing, but by God, don’t make such lame excuses for them.

    There are several women who stand for TBoss on this issue, even if they were not fans or didn’t watch the show. The simple reason is that most have experienced it on some level or the other. As have some men, if they were being truthful. So no, it is not a non issue and it hurts to have you pass it off as one.

    You don’t have to sympathize or to understand, but please be open to listening.

    Rant over

      So does that mean you can create humour out of someone getting murdered? You guys should shut up already; you’re “sounding” really stupid trying to kiss ass and support what’s clearly wrong. There are certain things you don’t joke about, abuse of any sort is part of it, murder, etc. End off. AY went overboard, was stupid, and he “apologized”. Let it go!

    I go Dye i would appreciate more if you keep quiet on this thing , silence doesnt mean you are not opinionated, it means some certain things should be left unsaid and maturity..You are making it difficult for your colleague if you must know..Allow all parties involved to move on, ok…

    Our attitude towards one another contributes more to the increasing suicide rate than the economy. Forgiveness is too far from our hearts.
