A-Destiny can be delayed and not denied or destroyed, when it is your time no one can stop it.
A-In Nigeria my role model is Gandoki, a comedian and globally it is Nelson Mandela, though he is more of a heroes now in death.
Q- Your opinion about the industry?
A-The industry is very competitive, everyone now wants to be a comedian and Mc without having the talent, because of the money. And the political games are always so dirty, you find Agents collecting huge sums of money from clients to get models, then use the models, overwork them and pay them peanuts. It’s quite annoying and sad.
Q- Your advice to upcoming talents?
A-Stay strong, believe in yourself and don’t do things because someone is great at it-discover what you are good at, work on yourself, be creative and the sky will be your starting point.
Q-What the future holds-new projects?
A-I am planning on starting up my brand soon, create a web page were people can watch and download all my comedy skits and jobs. You will see more of me in movies, soaps and hopefully Awards too.
