Popular Nigerian comedian, Samuel Perry better known by his stage name, Broda Shaggi, is most definitely in the prime of his comic career as he continues to build a strong fan base with his contents on social media.
Shaggi, who about two years ago, wasn’t as prominent as he is now on social media has now become a force to reckon with when it comes to comedy in the country – on how he achieved such feat, he shared in recent interview.
In a chat with Punch’s Saturday Beats, Shaggi stated that beyond his creativity and hard work, his friendship and association with hip hop artiste, Davido, was among the things most responsible for his wide acceptance today.
He told Saturday Beats,
“Without a doubt, my association and friendship with Davido has significantly improved my brand.
“Davido is a great guy who is willing to support anyone that comes his way. Knowing and moving around with him has been a blessing for my brand.”
Also talking on how the situation had been with ladies throwing themselves at him, Shaggi, who hails from Ogun State, revealed that he had learnt to remain focused despite the attention he got from fans.
“It is not unusual for ladies to appreciate you in different ways if you are good at your craft and are famous.
“But as a person, I do my best to focus on my craft and find new ways I can improve.
“Trying to stay up there and make a bigger name has not been easy and it is only through focus that one can achieve that.
“My style of comedy is different and that is why I rely on God for inspiration in coming up with my skits.
“I am a strong believer in God. Anything I do, I put Him first and that is why I rely on Him for inspiration.”
