Seven Nigerian Humorists You Should Follow on Instagram


Instagram is awash with self professed comics who’ve gained traction through many tricks ranging from recycling old jokes, exaggeration, cross-dressing, parody and the likes. One trick that’s more common is the comparison between an African parent’s reaction and that of a European.

Most of these generation Y comics play more that one endearing character and play out exaggerated events in an African family. Of course, the plots ring true to a certain extent and that has led to their popularity among their primary audience- Africans.

But there are some who’ve found a niche for themselves. And that has made them premium in the saturated market. Yes- market. Because they have found ways to monetize their platforms. Even hosting comedy gigs offline and selling merchandise.
