Comedian, Omobaba tells a Touching story of how he met his turning point

Popular Nigerian comedian and singer, Omobaba a.k.a omo finest, in a chat with Saturday Beats, explained how his turning point came the day he went to purchase kerosine for his mother.

He said it was on his way to run the errand for his mother that the opportunity to feature in a show came and he welcomed it.

Omobaba said,

 “The first time I ever performed in public, it was an open field concert that was organised by different churches and they invited choristers from different churches. I was not billed to perform because my parents actually sent me to buy kerosene.

 I saw them setting up on my way to get the kerosene, then I approached them and asked if I could perform as a comedian but they said that it was strictly music. I told them to allow me to sing even though I did not come with my band; they said that I could perform comedy for five minutes instead and if they found out I was not funny, they would cut me off. I eventually performed for 20 minutes that day.” 

He further disclosed that things were not easy for him as he later paid N500 to feature on a show.

“The truth is that the next time I had the opportunity to perform, I was not paid; in fact, I paid the organisers of the show about N500 for them to allow me to perform. Eventually, during the course of my career when I started getting paid, I was given N400.

 I thank God for my life because I made my first million before I turned 27 years old. The money was paid in two instalments for the same gig,” he said.
