Yvonne Jegede Criticises Nedu For Targeting Women’s Self-Esteem In Podcasts

Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede has strongly criticised Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, popularly known as Nedu, accusing him of targeting women’s self-esteem in his podcasts, News About Nigeria reports.

Jegede’s comments came in response to Nedu’s remarks following her public apology to May Edochie for comments made on his show, ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast.

On Thursday, June 13, 2024, Jegede took to her Instagram handle to address Nedu’s reaction to her apology, which she had issued after endorsing Yul Edochie’s controversial second marriage during her appearance on ‘The Honest Bunch’, co-hosted by Nedu.

In response to her public apology, Nedu had posted on Instagram, “If you talk, use your chest and stand by your words.”

Jegede responded, accusing Nedu of having a podcast history filled with content that undermines women’s self-esteem.

She said that he seemed to derive pleasure from watching women attack each other due to his apparent disdain for them.

“I woke up to see Nedu’s post reacting to my appearance on the podcast, particularly my apology to May Edochie and women in general,” Jegede wrote.

“I understand Nedu’s difficulty in comprehending my apology. Narcissistic and toxic men like him cannot grasp the importance of apologizing when others feel hurt by your actions, regardless of whether you believe you are right or wrong.”

She continued, “Small-minded people like you rejoice when women attack each other or are trampled upon. Check the history of your podcast; it is filled with content targeting women’s self-esteem. Perhaps the rumor about you is true—you don’t like women! Nedu, there’s nothing wrong with women winning and shining; it doesn’t diminish you or any other man.”

Jegede also accused Nedu of failing to promote her movie, ‘A Father’s Love’, which she came to discuss on his show, instead focusing on personal matters.

She revealed that Nedu had been messaging her on WhatsApp, expressing his liking for her, and now was using her for clout with his petty posts.

“I was raised to apologize if I was wrong and to those who felt hurt by my actions,” she stated. “If I didn’t own what I said with conviction, I wouldn’t come out to apologize when it was pointed out that some women and May felt offended. My apology was directed at those who clearly expressed their hurt.”

Jegede concluded by stressing the importance of taking responsibility and not profiting at the expense of others.
