• It is what I have discussed with God...
Celebrated Nigerian comedian Samuel Perry, alias Brodda Shaggi, is in the country to work with Kenyan comedians and content creators.
In an exclusive interview with Mpasho.co.ke, he shared information about his love life, revealing that he is single at the moment;
"I am in a relationship with God, we are close, we love each other, and its forever"
He went on to say that he is keeping himself pure for marriage.
'Yes, it is not a joke, it is what I have discussed with God. For me, I don't think marriage or a relationship is something you should rush into. I have so many things to achieve before going into a relationship with any woman or going into marriage.'
But what are the qualities he looks for in a woman?
"God-fearing and one that I can have a good conversation with, one that is hard-working.'
Shaggi was excited for Kenyans to see what he has in store for them.
“I have linked up with some of them and I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag. I’m keeping my fingers crossed,” he said.
The award-winning creative said content creation “is not easy but you just have to be dedicated to it and give it all your best. It is work and it must be done”.
His goal is to positively influence people through his work. “I try as much as possible to let people see the process of my handiwork.”
The comedian-cum-actor has been featured in movies such as Namaste Wahala, Elevator Baby, Bling Lagosians, and The Razz Guy.
Later this year, Shaggi will release an album featuring top artists like Falz, Simi, and Waje.
“The songs are reflections on my mood that I want people to hear through my music,” he said.
With over 15 million followers on all his social media platforms, Shaggi has been named as one of the most influential sensations in Nigeria.
His nominations include 'The Future Awards Africa Prize For Comedy', The City People Music Award For 'Comedy Act', The African Youth Awards for 'The Most Influential Young African'.
He wants to be remembered for spreading love, and advises his fans to "stay true to your dreams".
