Award-winning comedian, Akinlami Babatunde Julius, otherwise known as Elenu and his counterpart, Kenneth Agberia, popular called MC Shakara will be joining the newly licensed Cool and Wazobia TV when they commence operations in the second quarter of this year.
ENCOMIUM Weekly’s findings revealed that the two humour merchants applied for the post of television presenters when AIM Group Ltd , owners of Nigeria Info, Wazobia and Cool FM called for applications in various vacancies in October, 2013.
“Luckily for them, they were called by the management of the stations, and as I speak with you, they’ve been recording”, said the source.
Another source who saw MC Shakara at Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos, during an interview session with rave of the moment artiste, Olamide, also affirmed the story. He said, “I saw him interview Olamide in pidgin with Wazobia’s TV logo on his microphone.”
Comedian Elenu, on Sunday, April 13, 2014, confirmed his new appointment. According to him, It’s true. It feels great; trust me because when it’s Aim Group, they make it happen.
“Well, I am an entertainer and nothing builds a brand name stronger than being on TV. The fact that I have a passion to be a TV personality made me apply and I am happy it worked out. It’s not going to disturb my comedy business because it is even going to put my face more out there.”
Also, MC Shakara was elated, but declined to comment. He said, “When it’s time to talk about it, I will let you know.”
