What you have to do to succeed as a skit-maker – SirBalo

Popular Instagram comedian, Timothy Obotuke also known as SirBalo has shared the secret behind his success as a skit-maker.

He recalled starting in the entertainment industry as a movie director before switching to skit-making and explained that to be successful in the field, it requires consistency, the willingness to learn from others and motivation to always improve one’s craft.

SirBalo made this known in an interview while noting that contrary to what some people might think, he had been in the entertainment industry for a long time, particularly in Nollywood.

He said; “Venturing into skit making was something I never knew I would do as I used to be a movie director. Becoming a skit maker was not so easy, because I was also a shy person; and the financial cost (of creating content) was not easy either.

To succeed as a skit maker, one has to be consistent, be ready to learn from people and always improve on one’s craft.”

The skit-maker who also spoke on his content, said the reason he uses heavily endowed ladies is just to flow with the trend.

He attempted to ward of criticism by saying that he is just doing what Nigerians like and so many skit-makers are also adopting the idea.

SirBalo said; “I am only following the trend. Using endowed women in skits has become a selling point many skit makers use. I am not the only doing that; there are many other skit makers like me.

Once upon a time, it was not about women with big backsides. But now, they have become a selling point in the skit-making industry. It is what Nigerians like. I am only giving my fans what they want.”
