Ever since the video, in which MC Prince, popularly known as Mr. Hyenana, ‘pranked’ a female attendant at the Lekki Tollgate in Lagos went viral, people have not stopped wondering if he actually makes use of charms. But the comedian has decided to clear the air.
He told Sunday Scoop that he had never used charms in his life, adding that what he held in the video was not a horn but a body spray wrapped in his bow tie.
He said, “I am a staunch Christian who believes in the word of God, but I am a comedian who is known for spontaneity. Most of the event I go to, I usually create my jokes at the venues, which are based on what I see.”
Explaining how he came about the tollgate’s prank, he stated, “As I was driving to the tollgate that day, some guys in my car asked me how I normally come up with my funny skits and I told them that it was the handiwork of God. I told them that God may give us one that moment. Less than 20 seconds after I made that proclamation, the viral skit came up.”
Admitting that he didn’t expect the kind of feedback he got, he said he went back to pay later in the evening.
He disclosed, “I actually tried to turn back immediately, but there were already cars behind me. So, I left and returned later that evening to pay them. I went to meet the supervisor in charge and explained to him that I did not pay the toll fee because I pranked on the lady on duty.”
