Timothy Obotuke, aka Sirbalo, a popular content creator, claims that he features well-endowed women in the majority of his skits because that is the industry trend.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, the skit maker said, “I am only following the trend. Using endowed women in skits has become a selling point many skit makers use. I am not the only one doing that; there are many other skit makers like me. Once upon a time, it was not about women with big backsides. But now, they have become a selling point in the skit-making industry. It is what Nigerians like. I am only giving my fans what they want.”
The comedian also maintained his personality off-screen is different from the characters he plays in skits. He said, “We are completely opposite characters. Sirbalo gives the public what they want to see and watch, while Timothy has other interests that are totally different from Sirbalo’s character.”
Sirbalo also noted that contrary to what some people might think, he had been in the entertainment industry for a whole, having worked as a film director.
He added, “Venturing into skit making was something I never knew I would do as I used to be a movie director. Becoming a skit maker was not so easy, because I was also a shy person; and the financial cost (of creating content) was not easy either. To succeed as a skit maker, one has to be consistent, be ready to learn from people and always improve on one’s craft.”
