By Chukwuma Ajakah

The Nigeria entertainment space houses a number of content creators and stand-up comedians. More recently, the number of content creators trying to function as stand-up comedians has increased. This, and lack of talents, have led to scarcity of stand-comedians.

In recent years, quite a number of these content creators with zero talents ventured into the entertainment space with a view to becoming famous and making money. Nevertheless, the Nigeria comedy space  still boasts of genuine talents, versatile brains, intellectual brains, thorough bred and humorous beings.

Comedian and content creator, Privileged Son, falls into this dual category of a stand-up comedian and content creator par excellence. He functions in both genres and keeps his audience overwhelmed.
