Comedy now one of Nigeria’s major exports – Shete
Some key players in Nigeria Comedy industry

By Oluwaseyi Oduneye-Ogunwomoju

An Ibadan based-comedian, Olakunle Akinsete, popularly known as Shete, says comedy is now a major export in Nigeria.

Shete  told the Raidar Gist in Ibadan that comedy is one of Nigeria’s greatest assets.

“Nigerian comedians are representing and flying the Nigerian flag all around the world.

“We are well recognised and appreciated at home and abroad,’’ Shete said.

According to him, comedians are social commentators who contribute to the socio-economic status of the country and also the world at large.

“We are using our talents to contribute our own quota to the positive development of Nigeria.

“People pick up ideas from some of the things we joke about and use it positively,’’ the comedian said.

He said that cracking jokes with people’s behaviour and situation was for a purpose.

“We crack jokes with people’s personal lives sometimes because we are trying to address issues in a comic way,’’ Shete said. (NAN)
