used to be the guy who would carry placards to protest, but now I am an activist with my mouth and videos.
My father loves what I do; he loves the fact that I carved a niche for myself outside school. My mother, on the other hand, still doesn’t understand the reasons why I do what I do; it doesn’t make sense to her. She keeps asking me when I’m going to get my Master’s degree. She loves education and wants her children to be well educated. Normally, parents will always ask children who are in my age bracket when they would get married but my mum is only bothered about me furthering my education. I am not going to do my Master’s degree because I don’t like books; I was the kind of student who used to read for exams, school is too boring for me. I am very happy I found my path, and God has been good to me. Yes, I remember when a lady who works in a hospital told me she plays my video skits to some of her patients and they always laugh uncontrollably. It made me feel really good.
Also in March, someone called me from the UK and told me that the only reason why he liked Instagram was because of me. The person is actually very angry with the way things are in Nigeria. He is always so passionate about anyone that exposes the ills of the country.
It happens to me. The truth is that no matter how funny an individual is, he may not be loved by everybody because people have different preferences when it comes to comedy. For example, some people cannot just understand why I always shout in my skits.
I get financial requests from my fans. There was a time a lady told me to reply her message in my box or else she would die. There are some other things I can’t say for now.
