@adxjnr: Point of Correction Sabi girl, KSA is not your “Uncle” He is old enough to be addressed as a “Daddy” Good gesture you apologized btw, Kudos ❤️.
@itzbasito: As if standing to greet King Sunny Ade wasn’t enough, you still calling him Uncle in your apology tweet, a fvcking 77 year old legend old enough to be anybody’s grandpa.
@mister_ade5: I just knew that you didn’t see him properly and I’m glad you came to clear the air 🥺 Stay safe and love you baby 🏽❤️.
@Spotlight_Abby: Ayra apologized and addressed KSA as the Legend, Uncle and King Sunny Ade, and some are still cussing, saying “uncle” is disrespectful? Walahi, you people just want to cook this night. From T-baby to A-star. 😂.
@Crownprince_Com: It is disrespect when you called King Sunny Ade an Uncle ok. He is able to father your mother Be Wise.
@Officially_Kriz: He’s not your uncle. He’s your Dad.
