Comedian Dr Ofweneke: ‘I’m not humble about my success, I’ll show it off’
Renowned comedian and Master of Ceremony, Dr Ofweneke, has boldly declared that he is unapologetically inclined to show off his successes and achievements. He also points out that he no longer feels the need to be modest about his accomplishments.
In a candid revelation, the funnyman emphasised that he believes in letting the world know when he is doing well and that he won’t shy away from displaying his achievements.
“I don’t know why people hide who they are. I am not humble. I was humble when I did not have a fortune. At the moment, I’m working on acquiring my dream car very soon, and I have notified my team that I will not have tints put on that car. People have to see me,” Dr Ofweneke candidly expressed.
He continued, “I hid when I was poor; I’m not hiding now. How will you guys know what God is doing?”
The comedian is determined to ensure that his status and success are apparent to the masses, stating that he wants people to understand where he stands in life.
Recalling an incident during a commercial shoot in Nigeria where celebrities from across Africa were gathered, Dr Ofweneke recounted introducing himself as “Dr Ofweneke from Kenya.” However, his seemingly modest introduction did not sit well with a Nigerian comedian.
“He said to me, ‘What is wrong with you? I have Googled you; you are on TV, Radio, and the Churchill show. Your social media numbers are huge, you are popular, and yet you are here telling us you are Dr Ofweneke from Kenya. The problem with Kenyans is that they are too humble with success. I learned my lesson ever since,” Dr Ofweneke shared.
Not stopping there, the comedian also issued a stern warning to bloggers, putting them on notice that he would take legal action against any blog that publishes stories detrimental to his brand.
“I no longer tolerate nonsense from blogs. I have been in this industry for 14 years just to sit there and let blogs spoil my career with silly stories. You write nonsense about me, and I come for you,” he declared.
