Ace Nigerian comedian, Alibaba’s daughter, Princess Brandi Eserophe Ididdiong, took to social media to share a photo with her classmates as they held a cup with liquid contents.
However the photo even got her father laughing with the caption it came with. Alibaba’s daughter wrote; “Mummy, it’s water I promise”.
Recall that in an interview with Punch in 2016, Alibaba’s Daughter, Brandi, disclosed that her mum is actually the comedian in the house, not their dad. Here are excerpts from the interview;
Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Brandi Akpobome. I am 18 years old. I am the second of five children – three girls and two boys — of my dad, Ali Baba, and my mum. I am currently doing my A levels and will be going to the university next year.
What is the running joke in the family?
My parents are really close and they are literally best friends. It’s a family joke, it’s so funny, but maybe people outside might not necessarily do. We go to our parents when they lovey-dovey and we ask them, ‘oh, do you want to go out with me, do you want to take me here, do you want to do this or that, etc,’ and my mum just turns and says, “Don’t spoil a happy home.” She says it in a funny way.
How does it feel knowing your dad is a famous comedian?
For a start, I’m not even sure at what age I was then, but I didn’t realise my dad was actually a comedian until much later. Now that I know what he does for a living, I am really proud and I feel extremely privileged. He is my mentor and role model. It’s a privilege to have someone like him so close to look up to. I see the things he and mum have done and achieved, and it makes me want to surpass what they have done. They’ve set the standard and raised the bar.
