Popular comic actor, Francis Odega known for his catch-word “gerrarhere”, disclose his secret in a recent interview.
Francis Odega, who was once a radio host with fellow comedian Okey Bakassi, said that the exclamation “gerrarhere” that brought him fame was his own addition to a script given to him. In other words, “gerrarhere” was not part of the script but his own creation.
Well, ‘gerrarahere’ is from a movie we did about three or four years ago. I saw the script, I liked it and got on the job. Surprisingly, the phrase that has everyone talking now wasn’t in the script. I created it. You see, the script is a guide I use. I read it, understood it and then did the job. Of course, I had to spice it up with ideas here and there. But honestly I didn’t know that it was going to go viral as it is doing right now. I believe it is God’s doing.
When asked about his recent endorsement by Etisalat, he had this to say;
It’s been great. It’s been fine. I will say it has made me more famous, more popular. And we are pushing it. It will get better. Hopefully.
Francis Odega claimed he is working on a number of projects to bring more entertainment to his numerous fans.
