Instagram comedian Mr Jollof, is currently under fire for an insensitive statement he made on basketball legend, Kobe Bryant’s death.
While Nigerians mourned the passing of Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, Mr Jollof took to his Instagram page to post a clip of himself saying rich celebrities usually buy what would end up taking their lives.
He used Bryant and Leicester City FC owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who both died in helicopter crashes, as examples and Nigerians are condemning him on social media.
Mr Jollof deleted the video and posted another one, saying he didn’t care about the backlash he was receiving and blasted Nigerians for mourning Kobe “when most of them hardly knew him and what he stood for.”
See some reactions below:

Its surprising that Mr Jollof thinks only expensive things are capable of killing you.
I’ve heard of situations where Kerosene Stove and power bank killed people but let’s ignore that. The fact he still feels he’s right even after deleting the video is sickening. So unnecessary💔

Mr Jollof thinks Kobe died because he “use his hands buy the thing wey kill am”
Same Mr Jollof shared the post from a car. If he had an accident in that car, he would expect sympathy, but Kobe deserves none because Kobe had his accident in a chopper.
