Akpororo seeking to quell the PR havoc that seemed to be brewing, quickly took to social media to issue a public apology to the actress. He wrote, “Good evening ma, before anything else I just want to say I am very sorry ma for the misunderstanding. I am so sorry for not following up after our last conversation about my show when you were out of the country the other day. I will never disrespect you or even take you for granted for any reason, I respect you so much ma, please pardon me ma. Thanks and God bless you ma,” he wrote.
Speaking to Punch newspapers’ Sunday Scoopin a telephone conversation, Kate via her manager, Funke Kuti, said she has forgiven Akpororo and will attend his show .
According to Funke Kuti, Kate is a big sister to Akpororo, so she has forgiven him. “The apology has been accepted. It was a misunderstanding. She has forgiven him. She will be at the show. One thing Kate does is, she supports and encourage up-and-coming entertainers. She is a big sister to him.”
