A highly renowned comedian, Seyi Law spoke to reporters about his career in the entertainment industry. Seyi Law, who is planning to celebrate his 10 years on stage, thanks God for the journey so far.
When I was planning to celebrate my 10 years 0n stage, I had no idea where I would get sponsors or funds to organize the show and I got a bit skeptical if the show was still going to hold but along the line, help came and it was wonderful and it was beyond my expectations. All I can say is, Glory be to God.
Speaking about his debut in the comedy industry in 2005, he claimed that it was his cousin that discovered his talent and encouraged him to go into comedy.
I tell people all the time that, I did not plan to be a comedian it was my cousin who saw the talent in me and felt that I could do this.
Seyi Law claimed that he received N500 for his first paid comedy. He also named Steve Harvey as role model. When ask how profitable comedy is, Seyi Law had this to say;
Comedy paid up because it is still paying up my bills but now I have not achieved my greatest achievement, not until I am able to drive past a house and say I like to buy this house for a person and I get the money and buy the house for that person I have not achieved anything.
Seyi Law claimed that his childhood was not fun because he was often in boarding school. He claimed his parents were based in Gabon and he had to live with his uncle.
I was in boarding house because my parents were based in Gabon and I was in Nigeria with my uncle. Even during holidays, I had limited time to go out. So I would say, I grew up in a strict environment.
He ended the interview by thanking God, his parents and his lovely wife for the support over the years.
