Abuja-based comedian MC Bob has spoken of the difficulties of succeeding as a funny man in the capital city.
He said: “Entertainment is more recognized in Lagos than in Abuja and artistes in the FCT are not recognized because the Abuja dwellers don’t even love entertainment. Abuja is a very busy place, but we are fighting very hard to hit the market; presently, we are making waves.”
“In Abuja, comedians force residents to laugh and you know that it is not easy to make someone laugh. If you can succeed in Abuja as a comedian, you must succeed in Lagos because Abuja residents even find it difficult to laugh when we entertain them. So you need to force laughter into them,” he added.
