How Long have you been in the industry?
I have been in the industry since 2015. I started while I was on Campus at Obafemi Awolowo University.
What’s there a time you failed?
In life’s drama, there is no rehearsal. Failure is inevitable. You always pass failure on your way to success. However, I believe that failure is not falling down but refusing to get up. When I fail, I get up back and I push harder because that’s what life is about. Losers quit when they fail, winners fail until they succeed
What have been your greatest performance so far in the industry?
The incorporation of the corporate mad skit series has been my greatest performance because it was something different and unexpected.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the entertainment business?
Every industry needs a digital space. In this generation, social media is more powerful than radio and television. For instance, during the lockdown, there was no event. We all learned to harness the virtually digital online presence. So the internet.
Have any of your comedic performances been harshly criticized?
Negative comments are inevitable. We have two major categories of audience. The Pessimist and the Optimist. The Pessimist audiences are hostile audience that tends to be negative in their view and approach.
While the Optimistic ones are those that support and boost the morale of the content creator. The same way I get praises from the audience is the same way I get backlash from them. I believe backlash is a feedback system that shows how my work is been rated. It helps me become better and it brings out the best in me.
If you weren’t a comedian what job would you do?
I would rather be an Apostle, motivational speaker or lecturer.
What inspired you to pursue a career in entertainment?
I have a taste for creative things and love bringing imaginations to life. It is a gift of turning an uneventful day into an exciting thrill ride of comic proportions. I am also inspired by relatable trends in the country.
What do you have to tell upcoming comedians in the industry?
I did a video on my YouTube channel titled, “why upcoming artist won’t blow” where I talked about important things upcoming artist should know. As an upcoming artist, know your audience, focus more on your content, be creative, be consistent, persevere (because the beginning will never be easy), stay humble and don’t give up.
What challenges do you face In the industry and how do you tackle them ?
I am never satisfied when it comes to creativity. I always feel there is more that can be done. I’m always aiming for perfection which can be occasionally frustrating. I love perfection.
We would love to hear from y’all, what do y’all think about Petertrailblazer ?
