You grow bigger by helping others grow. The best prayer is that people who you have opened doors for should grow bigger and better than you. I started my journey as a Stand Up Comedian from Bendel State University, Ekpoma. 30 years after, I am convinced that that door was opened for many other people’s talent to be activated. And leveraging on platforms given to me or that I gate crashed onto, Mohammed Danjuma, Centy Jack, AllamBloo, and many others and I, have been able to build a career and open an industry where our contemporaries and younger ones after us, can earn a living and take care of their families. Many comedians now own houses, have cars, many investments and businesses. These responsibilities were the types you hitherto needed to be a banker, doctor, accountant, lawyer or the likes to achieve. So yes, I am proud to see exploits from those who followed in our footsteps… Many black footballers today may earn more than George Weah, Pele, Stephen Keshi, Jayjay Okocha… But hey!!! The inspiration doesn’t disappear. And it can only continue. Some days back when I told a colleague, that the car for the #Spontaneity Was ready, he said, “Bros, you don do reach. Let the other people do for, do for the other comedians.” Hmmm. I guess they will. But until they do, I can’t stop. I see every assistance given any upcoming comedian as a way for that comedian to recognize the fact that it’s a pass on the baton challenge. So that way they don’t think it ends with them. If you look at it, I know what I could have done with the monies I have used for these cars and all other career interventions. All that said, WHO IS WINNING THIS CAR AT #JANUARY1STCONCERT2019? #January1stconcert2019 #Alibabasspontaneity2019
