Ten year old young Nigerian comedian Emmanuela has gifted her mother with a mansion as this year’s Christmas gift. In her own words, she says the gift is to thank her mother for the prayers, encouragement, and support she had given her.
“I built this for you mom, for Lal the prayers, all the encouragement, and support. Mummy, I knew you said you wanted a portable house and this is it. But forgive me I must complete your mansion for you next year. Don’t worry it won’t make us go to hell???my super Christmas. Mommy, I love you” she said to her mother.
Emanuella entered into comedy when she was five years old. She was on a family holiday and met with Angel. He needed some children for his comedy shoot, and called a few children he knew for the audition, but they couldn’t memorize their lines and he then turned to Emmanuella. Despite the eighteen hour long video shoot, a stunt he pulled to test the endurance of the kids, Emanuella did well.
After her selection, Angel had to convince her parents to let her become a part of the Mark Angel Comedy team and got their approval. She became well known after the comedy skit “This is Not My Real Face Oh”, in which she was making jokes about a headmistress to her fellow students without knowing the student was the child of the headmistress.
This short skit was featured on CNN’s Facebook page. On 2 April, 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, Emmanuella, Success, and Regina Daniels were featured in a skit by Ofego titled “Lockdown” on his YouTube channel using archive footage.
