Stand-up comedian, Tee A, recently dished on his career success and how his predecessors such as Emmanuel Danjuma and Ali Baba motivated him to venture into comedy.
He observed that his professional growth was down to the fact that he was able to reinvent himself, also stating that he has had no regrets as far as his career is concerned.
Tee A made this known in an interview with Punch News published on August 16, 2016, where he said, “I don’t have any regrets and the biggest lesson I have learnt is that it is always good to reinvent yourself.”
“That is why I am a stand-up comedian, TV producer, event producer and then being a first class master. At any point in time, one has to find a way to reinvent oneself.”
The comedian expressed his joy over being part of an industry that has moved above stereotype, as there is no main character among his colleagues.
Various creativity have been showcased which has added to versatility to comedy in Nigeria.
“Comedy has been very much fair. You can’t exhaust creativity, I am thankful for being able to play my part.
“I am very thankful that it is not a one-man show, there are a lot more talents that have come in and are still coming in.”
“If the talents that were there before didn’t encourage or get me motivated by what I saw, I would probably not be here.”
“I thank God for people like Emmanuel Danjuma and of course Ali Baba, who were there before me and encouraged me. The industry has really grown from a three-man industry to a multi-million naira entertainment industry.
The rib cracker, who has already celebrated 20 years doing professional comedy, has revealed that he still has a lot of surprises up his sleeves.
“Right now, what I have planned is to focus on the anniversary celebration and we are not producing any content this year. There is still a lot coming from me.”
“We are in pre-production for our “Three meal television programme “which is the main focus for me and next year also; I want to give back something for up-and-coming comedians. I might also do a one-man show sometime next year”, he said.
