Nigeria: I'm Happy to Be a Product of the Streets - Comedian, AY

One of such entertainers is versatile actor, standup comedian and movie producer, Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY, who had to relocate from Warri to pursue his dream career on the streets of Lagos.

Recounting how he had to come all the way to the centre of excellence, as Lagos is usually described; the humour merchant expressed how happy he feels to be a product of the streets.
