FAMOUS NIGERIAN COMEDIAN! AJIBADE OYEMADE
The first male child from a family of six from Ijebu Ife, Ogun state.Ajibade was born and bred in LagosState. He attended Ireti primary school at Ikoyi, Lagos, St.GregoryCollege, Obalende, Lagos State Polytechnic where he studied Business Administration and University of Lagos where he studied Creative Arts.
In his campus days, Ajibade Oyemade was just being funny and he used to make his classmates laugh. He loved acting but he didn’t know he was going to be a comedian. He entered into comedy in his 200 level at the University of Lagos through his friend Adesola Gbenga (aka OJ) a Comedian back then at the University of Lagos. OJ asked Ajibade if he was a comedian and his answer was YES even though he was not one at that time. OJ took Ajibade to an audition in year 2000 where over a hundred people attended and he was told to crack a joke, he managed to crack a joke but unfortunately the judges did not laugh but to his greatest surprise he was picked at the end of the audition. He later joined a club called Theatre 15(an acting group at UNILAG) with the likes of Tee A, Gbenga Adeyinka the 1st, Kofi, Teju Baby Face, Denrele Edun, Wale Gate, among others and this club helped him to build his confidence.
He decided to go into comedy because he found it interesting and in 2002, he went into comedy professionally. He tried to imitate Julius Agwu at first but he later realized that he had to be himself if he wanted to make it in the Comedy Industry.Ajibade stuck to his name rather than having a stage name. He got his joke from his environment and liked to use things happening around him as his joke material.
He is a Master of ceremony for weddings, birthday parties, Corporate Events and many others.Ajibade enjoys MC-ing weddings because each one he did got him four extra jobs at the event or through referrals. He believed that weddings that are to be remembered must have a stand up comedian anchoring it. .He worked hand in hand with his fellow comedians and when he couldn’t attend some events. He gave out those jobs to his fellow comedians.
The multi-talented comedian presents Comedy Cruise on Unilag 103.1 FM and Noun Radio 105.9FM.Unknown to many, Ajibade has successfully done radio comedy for almost six years with his ‘Comedy Cruise’.
