Ayo Richard Makun, AY is a multi-talented, multi-award winning Standup comedian, and one of the most successful comic acts Nigeria has produced. He comes across easily, as Nigeria’s most creative comedian as he has proven himself as an established authority as a Compere, Standup Comedian, Radio and TV Presenter, Promoter, Producer, Actor, Director, Writer, and Event Manager.
As usual, celebrity comedian Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY, posted his picture on his Instagram page. Out of the blue, a poke nosing fan said she has had it in mind for a while to ask him a question. She asked if the comedian was using an android phone and if the answer was yes, then she was disappointed in him.
According to her, why would the comedian be using an android phone despite all his wealth? AY, being the comedian that he is replied the woman with, “Thank you madam disappointment. I celebrate your own appointment.
See their exchange below.
Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun, aka AY, has also explained why he spent nine years in the university. He said, ” In December 1999 when my dad passed, It was difficult to take over his position as the first son.
It became even more difficult when my mum decided to join him in no time. “Embracing the responsibilities of taking care of my four sisters and two baby brothers wasn’t the best message to preach to a waiting landlord whose rent must be paid in due time. The combination of being a big brother and father came with a price that kept me in Delta State University for 9 years as a student.”
As a literary offshoot of his creative overflow, AY wrote the column, Going AY-Wire as a guest columnist with The Sun Newspapers, (Nigeria’s most circulated National Daily) and also wrote another monthly column titled Jokes Apart in Gbenga Adeyinka’s monthly comedy journal, Laffmatazz. The multi-talented comedian also presented The AY Live on The Morning Drive every Friday from 6am to 10am on Rhythm 93.7 FM, Lagos.
AY has become the ‘father’ of many upcoming acts and established acts that are doing well in the industry, through the monthly AY’s Open Mic Challenge that held every third Sunday, at The National Theatre and later at The marquee of Federal Palace Hotels and Casinos, Lagos.
The AY Show, arguably the best Comedy Show on Nigeria TV, shows on many terrestrial television stations across the country including Africa Magic, winning BEST TV COMEDY SHOW in 2008, and has from its onset become a must watch for its teeming fan base.
The AY brand also publishes Nigeria’s first comedy magazine, and he hosts (across the country, too) the usually out-sold comedy and music concerts, AY Live.
