Yes, “St.Michael Got Talent” that is going back to my secondary school to bring out talents in young ones that have no platform in show casing their talents, i.e Comedy,Music and dance..
Will you mind sharing your happiest moment/ Sad moment on stage?
Happiest moment was when I went for an Open mic comedy by Mc Rapindady last year, having being my first time of going into a competition and it was a huge success and my sad moment was my first performance in my school I cracked one of my best jokes and someone shouted”where you see this guy abeg comot for stage u idiot” it was so painful but to me it was not a sad moment but encouragement and thank God today because those that sent me away from stage now always want me on their stage
