You can't go back!
— Stedman Graham

Stedman Graham made a cameo appearance in Oprah vs Ellen. He was portrayed by Atul Singh and voiced by EpicLLOYD.

Information on the cameo

Stedman Graham, Jr. was born on March 6th, 1951, in Whitesboro, New Jersey. He is an educator, author, businessman and speaker, although he is generally known as being Oprah Winfrey's partner.

Appearance in the rap battle

Stedman first appears at the beginning of Ellen DeGeneres' first verse during the line, "How do I tell my friend Oprah she's gonna get more whipped than Stedman?" He then reappears at the very end where he finishes Oprah Winfrey's last line by saying "You can't go back!" in an auto-tuned voice.


  • Stedman is the fifth speaking cameo to fill in a rhyme for a rapper.
  • He is the third cameo to have two different people acting and speaking for them.
  • He is the second character to be auto-tuned.
    • However, he is the first to be auto-tuned despite being able to speak unaided.
      • If Neil deGrasse Tyson's unofficial auto-tuned demo recording is considered, it makes Graham the third character to be auto-tuned, and the second to be auto-tuned despite being able to speak unaided.
  • Originally, Atul was going to wear a gray wig to play Stedman, but it was eventually scrapped.
