The 23-year-old comic actor who is also a Naval officer noted that most of his skits were inspired by his mother’s character.

“I imitate my parents a lot in my skits, the way I dress in my skits is the exact way my mum looks in the house. I got the accent I use in my skits from them; I stayed in Ilorin for 18 years. My parents talk like real Ilorin people, my father is an extremely funny man.

I usually pick some punch lines from them to shoot my skits. “My mum taught me how to tie head gear. I love my parents so much, if I was not into comedy, I would be selling fabrics like my parents; it’s a profitable business for them. I pray I get married to a wife like my mum.

“I spend up to N15,000 monthly on data and I make close to N500,000 in a month. However, I spend some of it on charity, and as a celebrity, I spend money on clothes. My parents were very hard on me when I was growing up as the first child of the family,” he told The Punch.

The Ilorin-born comedian also revealed how he used to be frustrated at the initial stage when he started making skits.

He said,

“I used to cry when I started doing video skits because I felt I was not getting enough fame when I was doing it continuously. But I was not discouraged, even when some of my extended family members said I was wasting my time by doing skits instead of reading my books.

“I was not looking at comedy as a business venture; I was passionate about it. I get money from doing musical promotions for people; I started making money from my page towards the end of 2017.

“I started comedy during my secondary school days, with stage drama. My first stage performance was in 2009/10. When I started comedy, I couldn’t get help, but social media helped me showcase my talent with my skits.

I opened my Instagram page in 2015; I started by recording 15 seconds videos. I opened my Instagram page to have fun, but I was motivated when I saw other people doing skits. It took me two years before I gained fame. I did a video to support Bisola while she was in the Big Brother House and that was how it got reposted by her handlers; I got a lot of followers through that video.”
