He has featured in many movies with the hit movie, 'Osofia in London.'

The likes of John Okafor aka Mr Ibu, is another act that can make one urinate on his body while watching the actor display his acting prowess.

Charles Awurum is another clown to pick and with his pot-belly, one wonders how he manages to run after doing something bad in the village.
