Meet Ike Nwala the Nigerian who is one of the most famous comedians in Japan

Published

on

In a homogeneous society like
Japan, you will be shocked to find that one of the biggest comedians in
the country is a Nigerian. Meet American-Nigeria, Ike Nwala,
31. At the age of 21, he moved to Japan to get a job with Goldman
Sachs. Lo and behold he is a big sensation in the Asian country.
I
worked in computer engineering. And the whole time I was watching
comedy DVDs nonstop, teaching myself Japanese, and working on my
material
” he told VICE in May 2017.

Nwala would later join a comedy troupe on the side. His big break came when he did an impression of the announcer at the Tokyo Disney Resort on a popular TV show. It went viral and he was suddenly in demand.

Today
his face is all over TV stations. Apart from being a funny man, he
applies his knowledge about business into his shows. On the program  Nakai-Kun no Manabu Switch, he uses his business acumen and his comedy formula to teach the Japanese about bitcoin.
In
a country like Japan where black people are viewed in a certain way,
Ike Nwala’s success is phenomenal. With his success comes a
responsibility to represent black people.

I
don’t see it as a responsibility. I see it as an opportunity. That’s
all I see, just opportunities. It’s one of my goals, just opening their
eyes, you know? Showing that not all black people are the same. Me
coming out of doing technology, I think that helps
” he told VICE.
If Nwala stops comedy he admits that he would go back to tech and finance because he knows he is not funny in English.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
