Funky Mallam whose character is to act the role of mallam in movies is very good at it. The way he acts the roles will make one feel he is truly a mallam but the most surprising is that the talented rib- cracker speaks Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo fluently.

He has featured in many movies such as, 'face to face', 'Emerald', 'October 1st' and ' 'Paradise Park' which was his first.

In an interview with the Sun, he talked about how he became a full-fledged Wazobia. According to him, he was born in Auchi, had his primary education in Agbor, Delta State and finished in Umuahia in Abia State. He worked in Port-hacourt for about three years before he moved to Jos to have his secondary education. Afterwards, he moved to Bayero University in Kano where he obtained his degree in Mass Communication.

Funky Mallam moved to Lagos in 1999 and started with a TV sitcom called Paradise Park which was his first outing in professional comedy.

"So, you can see that I have crisscrossed all the major zones in the country. I also speak Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba fluently. What more can make one a complete Nigerian?" he said.
