I lost endorsement deal because of rumours that I hate women – Nedu.
Controversial Nigerian media personality and actor, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu, has revealed how speculations that he is a misogynist made him lose a multi-million naira endorsement deal.
The comedian disclosed this on the latest episode of The Honest Bunch audiovisual podcast co-hosted by him, Husband Material, and Deity Cole.
He said, “I almost signed an endorsement three weeks ago and I lost it. I’m not feeling bad. I didn’t feel bad for a second but I lost it.
“Why did I lose it? Because a lot of people were flying with the narrative, ‘Nedu hates women.’ And it’s a beverage brand. The brand said, ‘If this is what people are saying, it means it is not going to go well with our female audience.”
Nedu berated what he described as the double standard of those who accused him of liking women too much in his skits but turned around to say he spread hate against women in his podcast.
