Ajebo started off with his radio show LionFM after his graduation before making a career fully in comedy business, a strong passion he firstly exhibited in his second year when he hosted his school’s Literary and Debate Society Day.

The highly talented comedian who uses animation to do comedy in Nigeria began in 2008 when he was an undergraduate of UNN.
He started professionally in 2012 when he came up with video comedy skit titled ‘Aboki’.
His comedy skits are quite popular among Nigerians because they make people laugh and forget their problems momentarily. Though the characters are not real, they send special messages to the targeted audience.
The premise of the short skit ‘Aboki’ is based on a Mai Shai (local name for an Hausa man that sells tea, cooked noodles, bread and eggs) and a well dressed man who requests for the most expensive bread and egg combo ever made, only to ask for just ₦10’s worth.
The video went viral as many that watched it, loved it. It was funny and it was different. But what many people probably didn’t know at the time was the creator of the cartoon.
Asides his sold out shows, Ajebo’s biggest distribution channel is YouTube. He is currently the most Nigerian successful stand-up comedian with the numerous views on the platform.
Like many professional YouTubers in the country, most of his content revenue comes from brand integrations and sponsorship.
In an interview, Ajebo revealed that humour is a great tool to advertise product. In his words, “We’ve gone commercial, so I walk into companies and propose that we help them promote their brands with our skits.”
“Humour is a great tool to advertise a product and knowing the right amount of humour to put in and the right time is key”.
Ajebo’s comedy skits are some of the most popular animation content to come out of Nigeria. His YouTube channel, House of Ajebo currently has over 100,000 subscribers and 13 million views; most coming from viewers both in and outside Nigeria.
