In a recent Instagram revelation, Yhemo Lee addresses the backlash surrounding his controversial comments on financial priorities in relationships.
The social media sensation took the opportunity to showcase his generosity, proudly announcing that he had built not one but two houses for his mother this year, countering public criticism and challenging the narrative that he neglects familial responsibilities.
The controversy stemmed from Yhemo Lee’s appearance on “The Bad and Boujee Podcast,” hosted by Tolani Baj and Moet Abebe. In a candid moment, Yhemo expressed his appreciation for women labeled as ‘gold diggers,’ interpreting their interest as a testament to his success. His remarks on prioritizing gifts for girlfriends over financial assistance for mothers caused an uproar, particularly after a 25-second clip circulated, taken out of context from the 1-hour-14-minute podcast.
The podcast also featured personal revelations from the co-hosts. Tolani Baj disclosed her preference for men with passports, aligning with her love for travel. Meanwhile, Moet Abebe expressed reluctance to date men residing in the mainland area, emphasizing the diversity of preferences in the dating world. Tolani Baj, while open to dating mainland residents, stressed the importance of her partner’s willingness to commute to the island where she resides.
