Did you foresee yourself achieving this much success when you started?
No, because I’m still surprised. It’s all like a dream to me.
What inspired you into comedy?
It’s hunger. It’s only when you are in trouble you can easily discover your talent.
At what time did you realize you are going into comedy full time?
It was after winning the Comedy Challenge (Calabar zone) by Opa Williams.
Who influenced you into comedy?
People like I Go Dye, Basket mouth, Gordons and Gandoki. All these people I mentioned are great to me, I will never forget those who helped me in the industry.
You dress elaborately on the stage. Would you say that’s your unique selling point?
I don’t know, but if you say so.
How was your birthday celebration?
Lovely, thanks to my mom for baking me a very lovely cake. A very big thanks to my fans and well wishers for showing me much love on my birthday.

My birthday wish from God is for Him to grant me fresh anointing and the grace to know him more.
Would you say it’s difficult to settle down?
No, so long as you have the right person. Also having a good understanding with your partner.
We have not spotted you with any lady, will you say there is no woman in your life?
No comment. It will be announced when the right time comes.
When do you intend getting married?
I’m just waiting for the woman who will be willing to pay my groom price. Na joke ooo!
What are the qualities you look out for in a woman?
I can’t say it because some ladies are actors. In other words, they can fake it.
What should your fans expect from you?
Akpororo Vs Akpororo Tour, more singles and a lot more. I want to use this medium to tell my fans that I love them and God will bless them for giving me their support and votes for all my awards and most especially The Best Comedian Of The Year 2013 and 2014.
