Lasisi Elenu explains why he quit music to pursue a career in comedy.

Lasisi Elenu, a Nigerian comedian and internet skit creator, is known for his humorous internet skits, comedy videos, and stand-up comedy. He is also an actor who has been in films such as The Razz Guy and, most recently, African Messiah.

Many people are unaware that Lasisi began his career in the entertainment sector long before he began making skits. Lasisi used to perform music under the stage name Nature. Many of his songs are no longer available online, but “What Is The Matter” is one of them.

Lasisi was asked about his music career in a new interview with Hip TV, specifically why he abandoned it for comedy. That’s what Lasisi had to say in response to the inquiry.

“You jumped immediately into comedy trading off music, why?” Lasisi was questioned during his interview with HipTv. which he responded with:

You see, y’all are really starting to irritate me with this question. We understand why the exchange occurs, whether through trade or barter. We all know it didn’t work out. It was difficult. Life was difficult. It was putting a strain on my neck. I’m choked by E. That’s when e choking began. Actually, it’s self-evident. Many individuals today are like me. They switch careers not because they want to, but because they’ve ended up there, and that’s how I ended up there. I began off as a singer, a voice-over artist, and a variety of other things, and now I’m doing stand-up comedy. But it’s because I couldn’t find a good ground for being popular there, and I saw this as an opportunity, so I took a chance and forced it. That’s why, in a nutshell.

“What are your thoughts on going from one trade to another?” Lasisi was then questioned. which he responded with:

Jump, my brother, if you’re going to jump! Why do you think that is? I used to do music and release songs before this, but all I did was sit in my car and record myself rapping to instrumentals. I would simply download any type of instrumental and rap to it. I received four, five, or six remarks, depending on the situation. I did the same thing, but it didn’t help me get anywhere. Will I claim that it got me nowhere? Not in the strictest sense of the word. Nonetheless, I felt fulfilled while doing so. There was no compensation for it. I just wanted people to see it, mostly family and friends, and give me a like now and then. But there came a point when I realized I’d reached my limit. I was frustrated because this wasn’t simply going to be the cycle – me sitting in a car, rapping, ‘oh the rap sweet,’ four comments at the end – what was next for me? I was constant, and I did it over and over again. But the minute I was able to take a breather as Lasisi Elenu, the ranter, I saw an opening, a window, and I grabbed it and clung to it. So I’m just a regular person. I’m not sure how different my life would have been if I hadn’t taken a sabbatical from this job route. I’m not sure if the videos I made back then would have blown me away if they hadn’t gone viral or if no one had seen them (continued doing this). Because it’s not easy to tell folks to be consistent. But the advise I would give you is to make sure that once you have that breakthrough, you maintain 100 percent consistency.

This is excellent advice. Now, Lasisi is working on a skit, and I must say, he’s doing a fantastic job. He’s one of my favorite creators of online skits.
