Last month, BEAT FM Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi got into a social media clash with the Olumofin brothers, after she posted a tweet about two brothers being ‘social climbers’ and ‘gate crashers’. The Olumofin brothers caught their sub and all hell was let loose.
One of the Olumofin brothers Joro recently spoke with City People Magazine about the spat.
“Tunde formally invited us via email and invitation card to his wedding and offered us the expensive aso-ebi which we bought” said Joro on knowing Tunde Demuren who invited them to their wedding.
“My brother Dokun and I received the greatest shock of our lives when we were branded in an innuendo as ‘wedding gate crashers’ and referred to as ‘awon social climbers osi’. Of course we responded adequately. The response we got was that few of our chosen words were considered too harsh and offensive. We subsequently offered our apologies” Joro told City People.
He further said “I've moved past the controversy.”
When Joro Olumofin was asked he if would say hello to Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi he said “Yes, I will greet her. I don’t keep malice.”
Joro Olumofin and his brother Tunde attended Tunde Demuren and Toolz’s wedding on January 30, 2016.
