“Laffmatazz was an idea that came to me about 30 years ago, I kept asking myself ‘what is the best way to get known, to reach out to people?’ I decided to create a TV program called Laffmatazz, we were on TV for a while, then the desire to bring it from TV to the physical realm brought about the idea of Laffmatazz the concert.
“At a point, I kept asking myself ‘what will I be remembered for?’ At that time everybody wanted to be Warri, everywhere you go you hear ‘area’ even Yoruba boys were saying ‘we Warri people’. So I asked myself what I can do about this and God gave me the idea of creating a platform in the southwest that would give people in the southwest a platform to grow and push confidence so we started the Laffmatazz southwest tour about 12 years ago in Ibadan,” he said in the interview.
