As an Actor he has featured in productions like Papaz House, Centrifugal Force, Behind the Smile, Crack in the Wall, Married but Living Single, Bella’s Place, Lust 2 Lost, A Mile from Home, Pa Omokharo e.t.c…
I started as an actor with a production house – Harris Chuma Motion Pictures – HMP , the producer of ‘Papaz House’ where I played the major character in 2003.
I was always saddled with the responsibility of anchoring every event in that production house.
How I started as a M.C
And in year 2004 my elder sister’s M.C for her wedding disappointed her and I was asked by my mother to handle it and I happen to be the real M.C of the day. You know what I mean???…..smile.
The birth of EEMDEE Entertainment
I have worked as a comedian, an actor and an M.C and its been really full of experiences – good and bad, and in 2009, the birth of EEMDEE Entertainment came to realty.
The company EEMDEE Entertainment does Event Planning, Management and Entertainment. They organise the editions of their annual event tagged LAFTA SWITCH and FUSION (a mix of old school and new school) where they exposed some of their artists in music and comedy performances and also featured other top class acts in music, comedy and dance to the delight of their viewing audience. To God be the glory all has been well.
Been creative is God’s gift, you have to refine that crude gift from God to remain relevant. Else u will gradually fade out. So I do a lot of brain work.
When you see my results every year, that way, you would have known my plans the previous year.
As an actor : Ramsey Nouah. As a comedian : M.C Abbay. As an Compere : AY
Future of comedy:
Talking about entertainment in Nigeria, in a few years time, comedy will be the most talked about entertainment in Nigeria while all other aspects of entertainments will stream into it. So stick to the Passion that has brought you to comedy industry and be patient.
