He spoke on how he discovered Little Emmanuella, how the comedy is affecting her education and how he abandoned a promising career in medical line for comedy. Excerpts….
How did you discover Emmanuella?
Emmanuella is one of the kids in our acting school. We discovered her from the foundation.
How old is Emmanuella?
Emanuella is 5. She will turn 6 in July 2016
What are her parents and friends reaction to her new found fame?
Her parents are proud of her and love what she is doing.
What class is she in school?
She is in Primary one
Hope this is not affecting her academics?
It is. Now she works extra to be ahead of her mates and her academic calendar. Let me use this opportunity to thank her Principal Mrs Femi E. Peace and her team for all the hard work they are doing for this little girl.
Emmanuella seems to be getting all the attention; don’t you feel jealous at times that she is taking the shine off you even though you own the comedy skits?
There is no such thing as taking the shine. Our aim is to put her out there, help gain audience in the world mainstream comedy and that’s what we are doing. That’s what we will do for all our comedians by God’s grace.
Give us an insight into your background in comedy, education etc.
I personally don’t have any professional education in comedy. I just love laughing and making my friends laugh too. Talking about academics, I dropped out of medical school some years ago in order to give time to my dream. But as soon as I set course, I will go back to school.
Who is your role model in the industry and who motivated you?
Basketmouth and Kelvin Harts are my biggest role models.
What do you have for your fans as truly speaking you have taken over comedy skits?
I want to say thank you for always being there for us, thank you for sharing our videos, thank you for giving us attention. And to all who are working hard to get heard, just keep working and believing, and praying and trusting God… it works. Meanwhile, I really don’t think we have taken over comedy skits. Not yet, we are too far from taking over. There are too many people in Hollywood doing better until we can compare our material with theirs, we are still starting.
