When did u start comedy/MC and how did u come by the name Demo_pumpin

Started from Instagram in 2014, and the name demo_pumpin came from my friends back in secondary school

Does that mean Demo_pumpin is just your nickname which as well fits in to your comedy line?

Yes! As I always say… I pump people with laughter

So how have you been taking up the challenges considering the fact that you are an Ibadan based comedian?

Lol…. You asked about challenge, and for me the only challenge I know is in Ibadan, so it’s not an issue for me, fortunately Location has not really been a barrier, as I do a lot of jobs even outside Ibadan, my workspace is online, which makes me global irrespective of my location.
