Speaking to him, his joy has no bounds as he says,
“I was pleased to at least be noticed by people outside my school and i told myself that even if I do’t win any of the awards, been nominated alone gives me enough to brag about!!
But I was wrong because lo and behold, I won the Comedian of the year in all Nigeria campuses!! It is a thing of joy competing with not less that 32 other comedians from other schools!!”
