“It’s nobody’s business if male skit-makers choose to dress like women” – Comedian, DeeOne
Nigerian comedian and ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Adedayo Aderombi, popularly known as Dee-One, has shared that he does not believe there is anything wrong with male skit makers dressing like women.
He asserted that they are using their creativity, and it was unfair to criticize them for doing so.
DeeOne claimed that since some people found them amusing, it was also no one’s business how content producers choose to practice their art.
“I don’t think dressing like a woman is wrong. Also, it is not right for anybody to tell another person how to express their creativity. There will be people who find that person funny. If you don’t find a particular comedian funny, just move on. It is nobody’s business. It is about the individual’s creativity and the best way they feel they can express humour. I genuinely find some of them funny.”
The stand-up performer who also operates a comedy club insisted that there is a distinction between skit makers and stand-up comedians.
In his words;
“My comedy club is well attended. Even though skit makers are churning out a lot of content, more people are still attending comedy clubs. They are two different markets. The Gen Z love to go on TikTok to watch skits. However, the people who take out time to attend comedy clubs are much more mature people.”
