Popular comedian and singer, Koffi, claimed that he doesn’t use stimulant before going on stage.
Famous Nigerian comedian, singer and producer, Koffi Idowu Nuel, disclosed some of his experiences in a recent interview.
When asked when he performed his first show, he had this to say;
I can’t really remember because I started when I was at the University of Lagos.
Koffi claimed that his experience as a stage actor boosted his confidence as a stand-up comedian. The 38-year-old talented comedian also said that he does lots of researches before any show.
I do a lot of research. It’s not about being the most interesting entertainer but by being an enlightened person so that the audience can also learn from you as you entertain them. If you can give people a reason to remember your performance, they will always remember you.
Koffi disclosed that he does not take drugs or other stimulant before going on stage, unlike most artiste.
No, I’m a natural person. In fact, I don’t smoke or drink.
About his relationship with female fans, Koffi revealed that;
I make it a priority that what I owe my fans is to entertain and educate them. I live a normal life outside entertainment. Fans have come up with a lot of ridiculous things. For instance, once they know you are a comedian, they will walk up to you and tell you all sort of things like ‘do you think you are funny’ or ‘crack a joke for us’ and my response has been that comedy for me is a job and not for fun. I have never gone extreme with a female fan.
Koffi was one of those that elevated comedy in Nigeria to its present enviable status in the entertainment industry. Thanks to the efforts of comedians like Ali Baba, Koffi, Julius Agwu and some others, comedy has become a multi-million Naira industry in Nigeria.
