I wanted to be more than a voice on radio –Nedu -Broadcaster, comedian and actor Chinedu Emmanuel, better known as Nedu, has said that he went into social media comedy because he wanted to be known easily.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said: “I decided to switch (to social media jokes) when I saw that people didn’t know my face. Only my voice is known. You only know the state where your radio station is located and I need more than that. That’s when I decided I needed people to know the face and let them know that I could do more than radio. ”
When asked if social media comedy paid him, the comedian said he stayed with it because it was a game.
He also said that while many are complaining bitterly during the closure of the 2020 COVID-19, there is no reason to complain. He added: “The COVID-19 lock does not apply to me. People want to make more ads, so they contact us to shoot more ads and parody on social media. ”
Nedu notes that the success of the “Sister Nkechi” character she created makes her even more so. She said: “I started with the character of‘ Nkechi Sister ’who did well. When I see that a lot of people like it, I find that I need to do something different because it’s getting so much bigger. Then I switched to “Outsourcing”. I try my best to keep and improve every day. ”
On the doors that media comedy has opened for him, a Madonna University student said: “It has opened many doors and is still open. I do this for money; not just because I enjoy it. ”
The wind also held that the sky was big enough for everyone to fly. “I am no different. It just me and I try to do what’s on my mind. I wouldn’t say I’m better than anyone else. They are who they are and I am. The sky is the limit so that everyone can do what they have to do, ”he said.
On whether social media should be regulated or not, Nedu said, “The government decides whatever they want to do. I would not say they should regulate it (social media) or not. They should do what they think is right. But if they have to regulate it, they have to spell out the terms and conditions on issues such as fake news and bullying. That is the only reason I think it should be regulated.”
