The comedian strongly asserted that receiving a national honor is the highest honor one can earn for their contributions to the development of a nation, and he is more than happy to accept the distinguished accolade.

The comedian shared his opinions on Twitter, writing, “Those of you shaming or asking me to reject ‘A National Honour’ are clearly missing a vital point. Our country is bigger and more important than any president or political party awarding it. National honour is the highest recognition anyone can get for his or her contributions to nation-building. So my allegiance is to a country where I have contributed my own quota, and I am more than happy to be rewarded by the same nation.”

The comedian’s viewpoint is not shared by everyone, though. Seun Kuti, a musician, criticized the comedian on Instagram when he gave an explanation for why he accepted the prize.

Seun Kuti emphasized that the national award is based on a presidential committee’s nomination, subject to the president’s confirmation.

Let me reiterate. He even mocked the comedian when he accepted his “Buhari” award by saying, “Let me reiterate. No be a public opinion poll them take dey choose national award na by presidential committee then the president will accept the nomination of certain people. In as much as it’s a national honour, it’s a presidential appointment. Biko, receive ur BUHARI award and stop to dey Shalaye!!!”

It’s important to note that the comedian had previously expressed his satisfaction and enthusiasm after winning the coveted award from the President the day before responding to the trolls.

He eagerly tweeted the wonderful news, which elicited many congrats from his fans.

A number of individuals support AY Comedian decision to accept the national honor, viewing it as well-deserved recognition for his efforts, while others concur with Seun Kuti’s assertion that the honor is a presidential appointment and shouldn’t call for an explanation.
