Famous comedian and actor, Ayodeji Makun popularly known as AY Comedian, has stated that he is not among the top 10 funniest comedians in Nigeria.
He stirred buzz online with his recent remarks regarding his comedic prowess during a recent interview with media personality, Toke Makinwa.
Despite his significant success as a stand-up comedian over the years, AY has continued to be deemed “not funny” by critics, particularly on social media.
Speaking about the comedy industry, AY emphasized that his success doesn’t compel him to show respect to those critics deem funnier than him.
The comedian argued that stand-up comedy isn’t solely about who’s the funniest. He went on to stres the importance of carving a niche and cultivating a loyal fanbase, elements he believes have sustained his success and provided him with livelihood.
AY noted that if tasked with listing the top 10 funniest comedians in Nigeria presently, he wouldn’t even include himself in the lineup.
