Popular Nigerian comedian and actor, Babatunde Bernard Tayo better known as Baba Tee has revealed that well-known stand-up comedian Seyi Law stole his joke without asking for permission.

He said that he and Seyi had formerly been the closest of friends, but their friendship ended when he learned about the comedian’s questionable behaviour.

Baba Tee discussed the betrayal and other private issues on The Honest Bunch podcast, co-hosted by OAP Nedu Wazobia.
