Jephthah Bowoto, popularly known and referred to as Akpororo, is a Nigerian stand-up comedian, vocalist and actor who was recently in an interview with Nigerian Tribune disclosed that he entered the comedy industry with one strategy – to act the madness that other comedians talk about.
When asked about his “crazy persona,” he said:
It is my own style. I figured that if you are coming into the industry you need to bring something new. Like you said, some comedians sing, dance and even act drunk. I know I can dance and sing, but I wanted to stand out, so I introduced something. People talk about mad people a lot in jokes, but I decided to act it out. It is my strategy and I want to thank God for what He has done.
