comedian turned actor and movie producer, Ay (Ayo Makun) has risen to the top of his game. AY is not just your every day run- off-the mill comedian, he is also a successful entrepreneur and moviemaker.
Today he has built himself into one of the most bankable brands in comedy. Thanks to his talent hunt show and his annual comedy show which has discovered and empowered legions of comedians.
In 2013, AY opened a new frontier in his career with the release of his debut movie production effort, 30 Days in At- lanta, a blockbuster that grossed over N300m at the box office and eventually earned him a Guin- ness Book of World Record. Not done, AY is back with a new flick entitled A Trip to Jamaica which premiered last weekend at IMAX Cinemas, Lekki, Lagos.
Entertainer caught up with the rib cracker during the premiere of the movie which attracted the crème de la crème of the motion picture industry and AY opened up on his biggest regret, ever describing his wife, Mabel, as his pillar.
“The only regret I have which makes me sad every morning when I wake up is that my mother who was always there for me, praying, supporting and wishing for her son to become somebody in life is not here to enjoy my wealth with me. That is the only thing that bothers me. I wish she was here to share my story with me and see what her son has become.”
My wife my pillar
However, he says that his wife, Mabel, has seamlessly filled the vacuum describing her as his pillar. Hear him: “I have a very wonderful woman. I call her a gift from heaven. She is my pillar. The one behind me, she is the real AY, she is Mabel Makun.”
30 Days in Atlanta
30 Days in Atlanta not only grossed N300m, it also won him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. How does he feel? “I feel good,” he says breaking into James Brown’s classic, I
Feel Good. “It is a plus for my brand so I will continue to work so that we can take it to another level,” AY says beaming with smiles.
Are you a youth out there facing harsh times due to the economic down turn? AY has a word
for you. Hear him: “Always believe that you can create something for yourself, believe that you can make things happen. I am not one of those waiting for govern- ment to do things for me. I always think of what I can do to survive and that is the message I preach to younger people especially those who look up to me.
“I always share my secret with them which is be yourself, do something for yourself and try to create an impact. Don’t go into it because people are going into it and making money. Let your passion be well expressed and trust me, every other thing will follow.”
A Trip to Jamaica
30 days in Atlanta was a resounding success. What are his fears concerning his latest effort, A Trip to Jamaica? A smile is etched on his visage as he responds oozing confidence: “Records are meant to be broken. If someone else is coming to break it, it means it is that person’s time. If I am coming back to break it, it means that I am still in business so I I am not afraid of anything because I love what I am doing.”
Considering his background growing up as a poor and deprived kid. Did he see success coming when he started out years back? “I can’t say that I saw all of this coming. But I was hopeful at the time that my story was going to change. It feels good knowing that the struggle from where I came from and where I am now has been quite encouraging but I believe I haven’t even got to any where yet. But where I am is a good zone and I believe it will take me to another zone.”
AY clocked 45 recently. How does it feel? “Do I look 45? I am just 28,” he says jocularly as he laughs. “It feels good. Turning 45 gives me that sense of respon- sibility that I have come of age because I am a full grown man now. Truth is I feel younger than my age.”

“How my husband raped my best friend” – Woman tells shocking story
An angry woman has told the shocking story of how her husband was found out to have r*ped her own best friend in his home.
The woman, identified as Rukayat, told the story in a letter she sent to Vanguard.
Below is how she told the story:
“I was fresh out of the university when I found myself pregnant at age 22. I didn’t want to get married, but my boyfriend then was 30 years old and persuaded me we should get married for the child’s sake.
“The marriage turned out to be a nightmare as he became controlling and violent. I endured his abuse for 15 years and with three children, I finally found the courage to leave him – thanks to my best friend’s encouragement.
“I was to finally go to the house to collect the rest of my things and my friend agreed to go with me for moral support. Unfortunately, she arrived before I got there. My husband was in, in spite of his telling me he wouldn’t be around.
“He invited my friend in to wait for me and attacked her almost immediately, raping her in the process. When I eventually turned up, we both went to the police and got him arrested. Later, relatives and friends convinced us to drop the charges because of the children.
“My friend never spoke to me again and as soon as she could, she got transferred to another state. If I’d left my ex sooner, my friend might never have gone through the nasty experience of being violated. I blame myself for the trauma she went through.”
“I’m sorry for what happened to your best friend and it is sad you were unable to be reconciled before she relocated.
“Please know that what happened to her was not your doing. You are a victim just as she was and you need support in realising this.
“You did the best you could by reporting the incident. You’ve lost your best friend as well as your marriage.
“You need counselling to get over your losses and make the most of your life as the single parent you now are.”
“I’m having s*x with my mother-in-law and it’s amazing” – Man confesses
I’m having an incredible and explosive s*xual affair with my mum-in-law, and the s*x is so amazing and I can’t stop…man shares the story online.
A young man has written to a popular s*x and relationship therapist, Deidre, who is also a columnist for The Sun UK newspaper about his addiction to s*xual intercourse with his mother-in-law after an explosive bonking one afternoon which got him hooked to her honey pot.
Below is his story;
I’m having a secret affair with my mother-in-law. She is almost twice my age and we have fabulous s*x.
I got married three years ago. I’m 26 and my wife is a gorgeous Italian girl. She’s 25. When I first went to her house I couldn’t believe her mum’s age. She is 44.
My then wife-to-be told me, proudly, that all her boyfriends had fancied her mum. It seemed a strange thing to say.
That’s the odd thing about marrying someone from another culture — there’s so much that’s different and strange that I didn’t know what to believe. Her mum owns a restaurant.
It’s a small, classy place and my mother-in-law took it on when my wife’s dad passed away. She’s a very smart woman who knows how to run a good business and still have time off to have fun.
My wife covers for her in the restaurant alternate weekends and that’s when her mother is free to see me.
The first time it happened she came to our house where I was alone with our two-year-old son. She said she was checking that I was behaving myself while my wife was away.
I poured her a drink and she pulled up her skirt while she sat next to me. I caught sight of stockings, all lacy and black. That’s something my wife knows I just can’t resist.
We had a couple more drinks then I couldn’t hold back anymore. We had s*x on the sofa while my son slept upstairs.
This is now quite a regular thing. We’ve progressed from suspenders and stockings to bondage and real kinky stuff like I’ve only ever dreamed of before.
I’ve never had this kind of s*x with anyone else and I know I won’t get it again. The s*x is up there in a league of its own but then so is the guilt.
I know this must stop but my willpower is weak.
Below is the reply he got from the relationship expert;
Are you asking for advice or boasting about what you have been up to?
You know what to do.
You must tell your mother-in-law that it’s all been amazing but you must stop now or your son and your wife, the two people you should love the most, will get desperately hurt.
Take control of your life and please don’t let your lust get the better of you.
Maybe you’re fooling yourself that your wife wouldn’t mind.
I bet that she would.
How is your s*x life together?
Show her what you like but also focus on her.
Let go of other distractions and start giving your marriage the attention and love it deserves.
