Mc 2gifted I Am The Next Big Export Of Nigerian Comedy

MC 2GIFTED I AM THE NEXT BIG EXPORT OF NIGERIAN COMEDY

Have you ever been to a show on which you were so entertained by the performance of one of the artistes, to the extent that you have to walk up to them to get a photo or google them to join their fanbase, incases where you couldn’t get a photo, due to the protocols you have to beat to meet them?

 

Mc 2gifted’s performance at a show i recently attended got me to meet him for a photo that evolved to an interview with tanroses.com.
He was so flawless at making me laugh that i had to interview him.

 

Before i bring you the interview, its important you know these things about MC 2Gifted so you know am not talking about an upcoming mc and standup comedian. MC 2 Gifted has paid his dues and has been consistent as an A-List MC/Standup Comedian over the years, in the Nigerian entertainment industry.

 

 

Mc 2gifted started his career as a back up singer, for one of the famous live band in Benin city. He later went solo with the stage name ‘A1 THE PROFESSOR’ with which he released his first single as a musical act. The song was so good it was given a free 3 months air play by Rhythm 93.1 Fm, Benin City, Edo State.

 

He launched his musical album ‘I’M OUT TO SHINE’ in 2009. The album was produced by PPO and SPOT DE NERO for EEP Studios, Benin city.

 

The event was emceed by MC CASINO. The likes of BLACK IQ, SNIZZY E, and ONIGBESE, all top musical acts in Edo State as at then, were present at the event.

 

His comedy career started in 2007 , while running his National Diploma programme at the then Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro , now Delta State University Of Science and Technology, Ozoro.

 

He went for a Valentines Day party as a guest on which the MC of the day failed to show up. The organizer of the event, one Mr Fegor, now popularly known as MC FOCAH, on recognizing him, pleaded with him to replace the MC of the day.

 

He took on the event like he was the original MC of the day and impressed the organizer to the extent that he was given another job by the president of the school’s National Association Of Business Asministration Stusents ( NABAMS ), who was present at the event, to MC their departmental welcoming party.

 

From there he started gaining weight in the entertainment industry in Delta State, as an MC, on and off campus, performing in several events around the state. He became more popular as an MC/Standup Comedian than being a musical act.

 

Comically, he has made a great impact especially in Isoko and Delta State entertainment industry at large. MC 2Gifted is already becoming an household name in Nigeria. In no time soon, he will become one of the biggest export of Nigerian comedy to Africa and the rest of the world as he has already gained a fanbase in Ghana from he show he featured in, as a guest artiste. Here is a chance to get to know him more and join his ever growing fanbase

The name 2gifted, is born out of the fact that I am creative in music, comedy , acting and writing. I started my career as A1 which was my stage name later changed to 2gifted coined from my mentor who I share the same birthday with September 18th , 2face.

I have been there for long, but professionally I will say since 2010…
I have shared stage with Akpororo, been to stand up Nigeria,

And many others.

AS AN ENTERTAINER I BELIEVE YOU HAVE IDOLS AND MENTORS YOU LOOK UP TO OR DRAW INSPIRATION FROM THEIR CAREER. TELL ME ABOUT THEM AND HOW THEY IMPACT ON YOUR CAREER AS AN MC AND STANDUP COMEDIAN?

Wow,
Hmmmm, I will say comically basket mouth, musically 2baba, and in acting RMD.

 

Like I said I am an all rounder in the world of entertainment, don’t be surprised if u see me tomorrow doing music, or acting while I still maintain my art as an mc/ stand up comedian….

 

Basket mouth inspires me a lot with his spontaneity of being a super creative actor, comedian, and musician.

 

HAVE YOU HAD ANY BAD EXPERIENCE OR PERFORMANCE AS AN MC AND STANDUP COMEDIAN THAT MADE YOU CONSIDER GIVING UP? IF ANY, HOW DID YOU BOUNCE BACK FROM IT?

Bad experience as an mc no, reason is I imagine my audience anytime i am contracted to perform at an event or show and study my audience before going into the business of entertaining them.

 

But as a show biz organizer and promoter yes , but one thing kept me going, ( my tomorrow is greater than today )

 

WHAT ARE THE NOTABLE CHALLENGES YOU HAVE FACED AS AN MC AND STANDUP COMEDIAN? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?

Challenges faced – most times people around u especially those in your circle devalue you due to over familiarities….. they did it to Jesus so who am I , but courage kept me going , because I know ( my tomorrow will be greater )

 

WOULD YOU SAY YOU ARE FULFILLED AS AN MC AND STANDUP COMEDIAN OR THERE IS MORE TO MC 2GIFTED YOUR FANS ARE YET TO SEE?

Fulfilled, there is no word for now as fulfillment to me as far as I am concerned , because I have bigger stages to conquer, bigger show to organize, and bigger deals to sign.
My best is yet to be seen, and until my good is better I will never rest.

 

AS A PROFESSIONAL MC AND STANDUP COMEDIAN, FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE SO FAR, IF YOU ARE TO ADVICE WANNA BE MC’S AND STANDUP COMEDIANS WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THEM?

Comedy is a gift, its one thing to have a gift and another thing to package your gift to become a global one.

 

 

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE NOT ON STAGE ENTERTAINING PEOPLE ?

Lol, I write, music, script, etc as the spirit leads base on inspiration. If I am not writing I listen to good music ….

 

WE NOTICED YOU ARE A VERY HUMBLE PERSON UNLIKE MANY ENTERTAINERS THAT PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THEIR PRIDE. HOW DO YOU MANAGE BEING FAMOUS AND BEING YOU?

Humility is a gift to me. I guide myself and live by that part of the
holy book ( Bible ) that says “God raises the humble but pride goes before a fall”, simple.

 

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS?

In 10 years time , by the grace of the most holy one, I should be able to have done twice than what basket mouth has done.

 

 

IF YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY IN NIGERIA AND PUT ONE THING THAT IT IS LACKING IN PLACE, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE AND WOULD YOU PUT IN PLACE?

I will like to change the aspect of devaluation of up coming artistes, because the super star u see today was once an up coming artiste.

 

I will put platforms in place to
Support the upcoming ones, train and package them until the best is seen in them to the extent that people start investing in their careers.
