Comedy has become a big entertainment segment in Nigeria. In those days, people crack jokes for the fun of it with family and friends or to woo a girl, just like my brother-in-law did with my sister the first day he came to our house. My sister laughed so hard that she said yes to his proposal without realizing it…lol. Today, many individuals make a living by making others laugh. Now people work so hard to be funny.
