Nigerian rapper, Falz and his colleague/co-host, Laila, have been called out by Nigerians following their recent ‘On the couch’ interview with presidential aspirant Eunice Atuejide.
On The Couch with Falz & Laila is a new talk show focusing on having informal conversations with Nigeria’s 2019 presidential aspirants on their plans for the country if elected.
Eunice Atuejide, founder of National Interest Party, who wants to be Nigeria’s first female president had a sit down to discuss her plans.
Falz and Laila were accused of forcing their opinion on Presidential aspirant Eunice Atuejide, who maintained on the show that she is not a feminist.
Here is a video of the interview below;
Some Twitter users who reacted to the video, accused Laila of being rude, condescending & disrespectful in the interview.
Here are some tweets below.
I totally agree with what the lady in pink is spitting, I also get the emotions behind feminism. But damn ,if you ask someone a question on a show that is supposed to enlighten(I guess) let her speak her truth, Christ! Let other people own their say without talking over them.

@falzthebahdguy & Laila, it is rude, condescending & disrespectful to bring someone on your show to be interviewed then proceed to talk over the person & try to force your opinion on her. This was painful to watch. People obviously love your show but you cannot do this. NO.
Most Nigerian On Air personalities didn’t study journalism,once you have a foreign accent,some broadcast company will hire you. A reporter/broadcaster/Journalist is suppose to be objective not forcing their opinion on others. I doubt if Laila is any
So far Eunice has been the best candidate interviewed on the couch with Falz & Laila. Obviously not scared to talk about certain things like the others who were obviously being careful not to step on toes.
Eunice spoke on some serious & personal topics like being raped, this is a major issue affecting lots of women, Falz and Laila missed that. This is because every interview now wants to get gems or hit numbers by focusing on Homosexuality or feminism. Let questions lead to others
I did a double take when Eunice interjected and said she was raped. Aunty Laila, didn’t even skip a beat… she just basically went on with the “schooling”. That’s when I gave up. It wasn’t about hearing the candidates opinion anymore. It was an opportunity to settle scores
