“I’ve built two houses for my mum this year” Yhemolee defends himself amidst backlash
In a recent development, Yhemo Lee took to Instagram to clarify his stance amidst a surge of criticism stemming from his remarks on financial priorities in relationships.
Addressing the negative public perception, Yhemo Lee revealed his substantial acts of generosity towards his mother, countering any notions of neglecting his familial duties.
He proudly shared that he had constructed not one, but two houses for his mother this year, challenging the prevailing narrative that suggested he was falling short in meeting his family obligations.
The origin of Yhemo Lee’s controversial comments can be traced back to his appearance on “The Bad and Boujee Podcast,” where he was in conversation with co-hosts Tolani Baj and Moet Abebe. In a candid moment, he expressed his fondness for women often labeled as ‘gold diggers,’ interpreting their interest as a reflection of his success.
Yhemo Lee also touched upon a perceived preference among men to shower their girlfriends with gifts rather than providing financial support to their mothers. It’s important to note that this statement was part of a broader 1-hour-14-minute podcast conversation, condensed into a brief 25-second clip, which ignited the initial controversy.
The podcast also featured personal revelations from the co-hosts. Tolani Baj declared her preference for men with passports, aligning with her love for travel.
Moet Abebe, on the other hand, expressed her reluctance to date men living in the mainland area, a statement that highlights the diversity of preferences in the dating world.
Tolani Baj, while open to dating mainland residents, emphasized the importance of her partner’s willingness to commute to the island where she resides.
