Nollywood actress Ufuoma McDermott has used her Instagram account to pay tribute to arguably the greatest Nigerian comedian alive, Atunyota Alleluyah Akporobomerere also known as Ali Baba as he clocked 50 years today June 24.
The actress posted a tribute to the aptly named Grand Comedian of the Federal Republic (GCFR) earlier today.
There is too much fuss over #AliBaba! Talk small thing, you’ll get the response: He is the greatest. Nigeria’s number one comedian. He’s a bag of ideas. A business man disguised in comedy. His friends are way up there. The best compere ever…bla bla bla…Long story. See, Alibaba is simply #GoodPeople! I swear down. I’ve been opportuned to be part of that goodness so I know for sure. Problem is, he’s got it in excess such that it runs over. I’m not sure how you do it Osé:: How you reach out to so many without wearing thin. How you keep up with the many who want your attention, how you separate your family from the hullabaloo of your work, but above all, how you keep being #NumberOne in this massively competitive society.#RogerFederer could learn a thing or two from that. No doubt, you are#TheGreatest , and as much as I want to give YOU all the accolades today on your #50th , I must commend that girl beside you. She’s truly a rare gem.#HappyBirthdayBrosAli#IWokeup4amLAtimeToPostThis#JustKnowIAmComingToBegForSomething
