Gbenga Adeyinka: Why I ventured into entertainment

Ace comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka, has stated that entertainment does not feel like work to him. He also announced that his comedy show, Laff Mattazz, was returning to Lagos after 12 years, because home was the best.

 

In an interview with Sunday Scoop, Adeyinka said, “I ventured into entertainment because I wanted something that would give me fulfilment. Entertainment does not feel like work to me. It is me having fun doing what I am doing, making people happy, making myself happy and earning money as well.

 

“Our plan was to return Laff Mattazz to Lagos with a major edition of the show after 10 years, but COVID-19 disturbed us. After COVID-19, we took a year off to stabilise again before we continued. People have been asking us to hold a Lagos edition, that is why it is tagged: ‘Lagos at Last’.”

 

The comedian also spoke about his other businesses asides comedy and the need to build structures in the industry.

He said, “What I have done for the last 12 years is that I have toured the South-West with Laff Mattazz. I have held the show in Ibadan, Abeokuta, Ilorin, Osogbo, Ekiti and Akure. What we have done is to build young comedy kings, because I believe that if we don’t build structures, there will be nothing to fall back on when the veterans want to retire or even move on to other things.

 

“I do so many other things because if you say you will survive with entertainment alone, it may be difficult. I am into property and I have a food business where I run a bakery as well. I also have a farm and other businesses.”
