Osuofia VS Saka: Who is the better comedian?


Nkem Owoh (Osuofia) and Hafeez Oyetoro (Saka) are one of a kind as far as comedy is concerned in Nigeria. Both acts have a few things in common. They are both MTN brand ambassadors, both started their careers from the stage and progressed through television soaps to home videos. While Osuofia kicked-off his career at the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Saka started his at Ogun State Television (OGTV), Abeokuta. However, there is a popular dispute currently raging among comedy buffs about who is the better comedian between the pair. And to permanently rest the matter once and for all, the comedians slug it out in Showdown’s ring today.

‘I don port o!’ Remember that phrase made by Hafiz Oyetoro aka Saka, after porting to MTN from Etisalat for the sum of N20 million when the telecoms giant signed him up a few years ago? Ever since, the university lecturer has continued to grow from strength to strength as his fame has risen to unprecedented heights making him a household name. An indigene of Iseyin, Oyo State, Saka had his first degree in Theatre Arts at the University of Ife (OAU). He got his Master’s degree at the University of Ibadan and he is currently studying for his PhD programme at the University of Ibadan, while working as a Theatre Arts lecturer at the Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Otto-Ijanikin, Lagos. The AMVCA award winner for the Best Comedian of The Year, and a regular face in TV soaps and Yoruba movies, has featured in many home videos including Circle of Interest and House A-part.                                                                                                             see full story here
