Nigerian comedian, Mark Angel, who became known as a result of his viral comic contents which features kid comedienne Emmanuella, in an interview, they had with Naij, revealed that what they do is not just about making only money.

According to him, a firm wanted to buy their Facebook page for $400,000 which when it is being converted is N144,000,000. However, according to Mark Angel who agreed to have an iota of doubt about the deal has rejected the offer.

“You can sell it and start again but there are people who can only get a laugh through that channel and by selling it, you will deny them that chance”.

“Recently, a company wanted to buy out our Facebook page. I thought it as a scam but this company is well known and they offered us $400,000 when I converted it to Naira, it was more than N100million (N144m). My first thought was ‘guys lets sell it.’

“But we can’t sell it because it’s not all about money. Money cannot buy what we do. If you think about it, you can sell it and start again but there are people who can only get a laugh through that channel and by selling it, you will deny them that chance,” Mark Angel said.

He further made it known in the interview, that their comic video helped an African president from taking a decision that would have affected his entire country.

“There was an African president who told us we saved him from taking a rash decision that would have affected his country. We were invited for dinner and we did not know why we were invited until he shared his testimony with us” Mark Angel said.

On the reason they shoot their videos in Port Harcourt, he said;

“To work in Lagos is very hard. If you want to start shooting, agbero’s will come and start demanding outrageous sums of money from you. There was a time we were asked to pay N170, 000 settling these touts before we were allowed to shoot. That’s why we shoot in PH and market our skits in Lagos”.

On her own part, Emmanuella said she wants to be a dancer and a make-up when she is fully grown to take decisions.

“I want to be a makeup artiste in future. Because I want to beautify people’s face. I also want to be a dancer” she said.
