Lagos meet your top 5 high-earning comedians

Well, you know your event isn’t complete these days without comperes on hand to anchor them. Most of these MCs are comedians who have used both their God-given talents and hard work to carve a niche for themselves in the industry. Here we bring to you the top 5 earners in the laff laff industry:

Although Akporobome Ajuyota, popularly called Ali Baba followed the footsteps of late Mohamed Danjuma in making stand-up comedy a business, he has made a lot of money from it. Ali Baba’s fee for a show is so high that only the high and the mighty that can afford him. Most times, aside on personal relationship, no amount of money brings him to a show, as Ali Baba is no longer hustling for money but eating what he has earned in the past years.


Bright Okpocha popularly knwon as Basketmouth is another talkative that has actually used his tongue to make millions in the entertainment business. Aside his contract with Globacom Telecommunication Company, which runs into millions, he has taken his comedy show, tagged Lord of Ribs to different European nations and United State of America. Lord of Ribs alone brings millions of dollars to the bank account of this joke-maker. In honour of comedy skills, Basketmouth has been honoured in US when city of Houston, Texas declared every July 17, Basketmouth’s day.
