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.
So on your comedy skits, what kicks your inspiration
Messi kicks my inspiration, cuz he is the best kicker I have seen around😀. On a more serious note tho… My inspiration comes from deep thinking, my friends and things that I see around me…The God factor can’t be taken away too tho

What is the Future of Nigeria comedy
The future is really bright. We have the biggest comedians in Africa. And we are gradually taking over
What are your plans for 2017
More skits, to start an online series, and to take skits to stage.
There is this notion that Demo_pumpin hates Ekiti girls… React to this
Loool, I don’t hate ekiti girls or anybody at all, I just love the controversy around ekiti, and I have had some really cool and at the same time razz ekiti friends, so I just thought to use them for my skits since Ibadan girls were being overused by others.
