Up-and-coming comedian, Damola Adegboye in a recent interview has revealed why he chose comedy over his First class degree.
“I had a first class degree in Political Science in Osun State University. I also have a Master’s degree in Political Science from the University of Ibadan. I didn’t get into comedy because I didn’t get a job. In fact, because I had a First Class, the school I graduated from retained me as a lecturer. So, I am a lecturer and a comedian. But comedy is what I find fulfilment in. Anchoring event, making people happy, solving people’s problems with humour, give me so much joy. It is also financially rewarding, so why shouldn’t I pick it up as a profession?
“I have been a comedian for six years. Comedy has been natural to me. I have always had a sense of humour even as a child. I got into school and things got better, I started handling school shows and anchoring events. When I graduated from school, I launched into it fully. That’s how I started comedy.”
