Ali Baba, full name Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome is a Nigerian stand-up comedian, actor and most notably the unofficial ‘Godfather’ of comedy in Nigeria and was featured on CNN's 'African Voices' in 2015.
He has been a professional stand up comedian for the past 30 years and has in the last few years received several awards, including Comedian of the Decade at the National Daily Awards 2009. He has supported, mentored and presented several comedians helping to ensure that standards are maintained and professionalism encouraged.
Despite being generally accepted as the foremost comedian in Nigeria, the veteran is not looking to rest on his oars just yet. Ali Baba remains an entertainer, a comedian, a master of ceremonies, radio show host, motivational speaker, photographer, writer and has a strong flair for creating and developing ideas.
" I want to remain on top of my performance every time; I don't want people to be like, 'ah, I thought you said he's the best'. So, I'm still taking things very serious. " - Ali
