I changed my dad’s old car in fulfilment of a promise – Child skit-maker, Kiriku
Nigerian kid comedian and content creator, Kiriku, whose real name is Victory Enorense, has revealed why he bought a new car for his father.
He said his dad’s car was old and always giving him issues so he discussed with his uncle, Umbrella Boy and they decided to change it for him.
According to Kiriku, when they were still up and coming in the online content creation industry, they both agreed to buy a car for his father once they start making money.
For the skit-maker, getting a new car for his dad was him fulfilling a promise he made to himself.
Kiriku, popularly known for his slang, ‘Abeg shift’, made the revelation during an interview as he talked about his personal life and future plans.
Kiriku said; “His car was no longer good, and we decided to buy a new one for him. We did that because the old car was giving him issues. Me and my uncle decided that immediately we started making money, we would get him (my dad) a car.”
He further talked about his early interest in comedy and how Emmanuella motivated him to become a skit-maker when he was four years old.
According to the preteen, he struggled to memorise his lines when he was just starting, so his uncle made him realise that he cannot master it all at once.
But that is now a thing of the past because Umbrella Boy taught him how to learn his lines and with time he became good at it.
Kiriku said; “I used to watch the videos of child skit makers such as Emmanuella. I became more interested when I started following people to locations to shoot skits. That was how I started.
“I couldn’t master my lines at once when I started out at the age of four. However, my uncle later taught me how to take my lines one after the other. I am better at it now though.”
According to him, some of the things that he sees as achievements so far, are having large number of followers on all social media platforms, as well as being nominated for awards.
The further gave kudos to a number of people who support his career, including singer turned celebrity blogger, Tunde Ednut.
Kiriku said; “He (Ednut) has really assisted me. Other celebrities have helped me too.”
