Wofai Ewa, also known as Wofaifada is a comedian who produces comedy skits on social media platform especially Instagram.
As a result of the consistency in her comedy skits, Wofaifada has over 250,000 followers.
The Ebonylife TV presenter who joined Instagram in 2014 told Ademola Olonilua of Punch how she joining Instagram has opened a new world of possibilities for her.
Below is what she said:
I always heard people talk about Instagram, so I decided to join them in 2014 with the aim of uploading my pictures like everybody else because I love taking pictures. There was a day I kept a ladder somewhere and I was playing a funny song at the background; I was only clowning around in the video but when I posted it, the video went viral. As of then, I did not know what was going on because I was still new to the social media platform. Then I did another one which went viral as well and since that day, I have not relented.
I did not know I was going to be popular through social media; I thought modelling would make me popular because I was a runway model. That’s what I leveraged on in school. Back then, there was nothing like social media. Immediately social media made me popular, I stopped modelling.
It was through Instagram that I got a job at EbonyLife TV. It was through Instagram that I started appearing in movies. I am approached by big brands, like Access Bank, to provide content for them. Nobody came to meet me at home for jobs, I put myself out there, I showed the people what I can offer and my audience found me.
If you check Instagram now, it is like ‘balogun market’. Everybody is a comedian now and it annoys me sometimes because some people are not funny. If you know that you cannot do comedy, try something else. There are so many things that can be done online, so why must everybody be a comedian? You will just see one boy wearing wig on his head, downloading and editing app and he begins to portray himself as a comedian. It annoys me when I see that someone is not funny but he is forcing himself. Try something else. If you want to be creative, you must not wear a wig, all the guys on social media are now wearing wigs.
