Isaac Aloma a.k.a Zicsaloma, a popular skit maker, has taken a trip down memory lane, saying that being a skit creator is more gratifying than being a part-time English lecturer at the Kaduna State Polytechnic.
The comedian also revealed that several of his coworkers are making millions of dollars online with no help from anyone.
In an interview with The PUNCH’s ‘Sunday Scoop,’ he revealed this.
“I believe online is the in-thing now,” he stated in part. I can’t recall the last time I purchased a CD or watched television. Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook are always open in my browser. Many people, I believe, are spending more time online these days.
“Some people feel that there is no point paying for a show when they can always watch their favourite comedians online, provided they have access to the Internet.”
Also disagreeing with people who feel that all female entertainers who are doing well are sponsored by rich men, Zicsaloma said: “There is a saying that in every rumour, there is an iota of truth. However, even if that is true, it cannot be applicable to all female comedians or content creators.
“There are many female comedians who are making millions online, without the help of anyone. I don’t want to mention names but I can vouch for some of them because I know how much they make in a month. If a pretty lady is exposed to the public, men will definitely make advances at her. It is left for the person to accept or not. However, any female content creator who is talented and is ready to work hard can make more money than any man can give her.”
