Nigerian content creator, Bukunmi Adeaga-Ilori, popularly known in entertainment circles as Kiekie has explained how she dovetailed from fashion designing to skitmaking.
Kikie who opened up while speaking as a panellist during one of the sessions of the Entertainment Week Lagos during the week, said that she infused her fashion side to her content.
She said that it is very important to surround oneself with the right set of people that will push the right elements out of one; and not with the most irrelevant things.
“I infused the comic side into my content, and that was what gave birth to my fashion shock show. It was a bit of critiquing fashion, but infusing comedy into it. That was one of the things that made the show grow at the time.
“It was a case of wanting to show more and having the right people around me to encourage me to do that. That is why I always tell people that it is very important to surround oneself with the right set of people that will push the right elements out of one; and not with the most irrelevant things.
“People started seeing the comic side in my fashion content, and they began pulling me into skits, saying, ‘This girl is hilarious; come and feature in skits’. One skit turned into five, then 10, till we got to this point. Before I knew what was happening, I had started producing my own content, and opened a YouTube channel.”
