Nigerian comedian, Otaghware Otas Onodjayeke, popularly known by his stage name Igosave, has asserted that the fame of a skit maker is ephemeral.
He said, unlike stand-up comedians, most skit makers lack longevity in the entertainment industry.
The comic star made the assertion while appearing as a guest on the latest episode of The Honest Bunch podcast, co-hosted by actor, Nedu.
Asked if he agrees that skitmaking is now overshadowing stand-up comedy, Igosave said, “Skitmaking, once they start am e dey erupt like volcano. But in my opinion, the lifespan is short.
“Yeah, skit maker go come, scatter everywhere, but before you know, he do cool. But, comedians go dey there for years still dey do their thing dey go [sic].
“We get plenty skit makers wey don come, wey we no dey hear off again wey no last three minutes.”
