Talking about getting into comedy he shares, “As a child, whenever my brother who was staying with my Aunty in the neighboring village, returns home for holiday, before we sleep he would tell us some of the jokes he watched on television. Sadly, at that time, we had no television. So, I’d beg him to tell me more whenever he is around.
Then, when I started secondary school, I told many of my classmates most of the jokes that my brother told me. Coupled with the fact that I was good in throwing shades at others in school, after my performance in one of our social Fridays in 2004 , the whole teachers in school started calling me a comedian. That was how I got established till date. My talent became a lucrative business for me. I was motivated by hunger and bills to start demanding money for it.”
