Comedian, Dee One Finally Speaks After Getting Roasted Online For Joking About Electricity

Published

on

However, he told Sunday Scoop that he was just joking. He said, “It was sarcasm. There is nobody that doesn’t need electricity. Those bashing me for that post are very stupid because I’m not the government. If they want to bash anybody, it should be the government. I always tell people to use their gifts to address serious issues. Poor electricity supply is a very big problem in Nigeria and it’s part of the things setting us back. If people can channel their frustrations to the government with the same vigour (they attacked me online), I believe things will be much better. It’s only in Nigeria that we take comedians seriously and we take politicians as jokers.

“Trending on the Internet doesn’t give one money; it just puts you out there. And if it puts you out there, it then depends on what you’re able to do with the attention.”

Speaking on his relationship with fellow Big Brother ex-housemates, Dee one said, “I am cool with all of them. Friends will always fight, but after that, we try to reach a common ground and move forward. Personally though, I am done with all that Big Brother drama; that era has passed. Right now, I want to be known and addressed as a comedian, not as a former BBN contestant.”

Responding to people who say that he is not funny, he said, “I can bet that most people who say I am not funny have never seen me perform. I just did my stand-up comedy show and everyone who attended had a good time. Many people just talk based on what they see online. Meanwhile, I cannot be funny to everybody. I have my target audience. I am not the type of comedian that would give free jokes on the Internet. It is business for me. If I put out my content for free, why then does anybody have to pay to watch me? These days, every Tom, Dick and Harry can be found on the Internet claiming to be comedians and giving materials away. However, I don’t blame them because I know they are looking for publicity. But, for someone like me, who already has the publicity, I don’t need all that. I was a professional before I went into the Big Brother House. Big Brother did not pay me to do jokes, so I abided by the rules and regulations of the game. It’s sad that these days, people are used to getting free things. My advice to people who think I’m not funny is that they should come and watch me. I run a comedy club alongside Omobaba and SLK, and I’ve been doing it for five years.”

The Sultan, who stated this at the fourth quarterly meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council in Abuja, said bandits were fast overrunning the North as residents slept with their eyes open.

While describing the North as the worst place to live, he said that bandits had become daring.

He said they moved from house to house, village to village, market to market, with AK-47 rifles openly, purchasing foodstuffs and other items and even collecting change without any challenge from the security agencies.

The foremost traditional ruler stated that the security system in the North had completely collapsed.

He said, “Security situation in Northern Nigeria has assumed a worrisome situation. Few weeks ago, over 76 persons were killed in a community in Sokoto in a day. I was there with the governor to commiserate with the affected community.

“Unfortunately, you don’t hear these stories in the media because it’s in the North. We have accepted the fact that the North does not have strong media to report the atrocities of these bandits.

“People think North is safe but that assumption is not true. In fact, it’s the worst place to be in this country because bandits go around in the villages, households and markets with their AK 47 and nobody is challenging them.

“They stop at the market, buy things, pay and collect change, with their weapons openly displayed. These are facts, I know because I am at the centre of it.

“I am not only a traditional ruler, I am also a religious leader. So, I am in a better place to tell the story. I can speak for the North in this regard because I am fully aware of the security challenges there. We have to sincerely and seriously find solutions to the problem, otherwise, we will find ourselves soon, in a situation where we would lose sleep because of insecurity.
