Famous stand-up comedian, Godwin Komone, also known as Gordons, has revealed that he intends to start doing skits.
He made the revelation during an interview while noting that he is still very much in the business of making stand-up comedy, though he had to step back and rebrand.
Gordons, however, admitted that the comedy industry is no longer what it used to be, hence the need to adapt to the modern trend.
He said; “I am still very much in the comedy industry. I am only trying to re-strategise. The comedy industry is not what it used to be, and we have to adapt to the change. Right now, I am planning on making skits that would be uploaded on YouTube and other social media platforms. Although, I will still be doing the normal comedy concerts, but I am working on maximising the social media space.”
The comic act added; “Since I was born, I have never done anything that came easy. However, I have made up my mind to do all that is necessary to achieve results. The good thing is that it is a familiar terrain. I just have to learn how to edit videos.”
“I also host events, and I have some activities lined up for the rest of the year. I will be going on a tour of Canada, Europe and the United States of America. This is addition to events that will hold in Uyo (Akwa Ibom), Port Harcourt (Rivers), Calabar (Cross River), Abuja and Lagos.”

“And if you know Ruggedman, I have always been in acting. I did my first waka pass [minor role], I think even before I became Ruggedman. I play extra in like two movies, Francis Agu’s movies back in the days. Of Course, you can find me in Toyin Abraham’s ‘The Ghost and the Tout’, you can find me in Jim Iyke’s ‘Bad Comments.’ So, I’ve done a lot of acting. I’m gonna start promoting that part of me really soon.
“And of course, I have been doing some skits here and there. But now, I have decided to get serious with the ‘Mazi Kalu’ character. So, it’s a character that is gonna be out there. There will be funny ones but of course, it’s still gonna teach you things.”
