Budding Nigerian skit-maker, Isaac Olayiwola, otherwise known as Layi Wasabi, has said that unlike his colleagues, he does see the need to use nudity in promoting his skits.

The online comedian stated this during a recent interview with BBC Pidgin, where he also shared the genesis of his journey into content creation.
