Koffi: I’m the only entertainer in Nigeria to have an award in everything

Comedian Koffi Idowu says his latest film, ‘Mumble Jumble’, will be first viewed by students in 20 universities across the country.

Koffi, who disclosed this in a chat with HipTV, said the film is a hip hop drama aimed at inspiring the youth to focus on achieving their dreams and defy the different hurdles of life.

The versatile entertainer added that the movie tour will begin at the University of Lagos, Akoka, (UNILAG) as soon as it is released.

He said: “We have shot the movie and we have been waiting for the censor board to give us permit to air it. And then, we don’t want to follow the same pattern that people expect. We are trying to build a culture around it.

“It is a movie about hope, and we want to take it straight to the students. We are going to about 20 universities so that we can reach the students.

“We can reach them with that powerful message that no matter how hard it is in life, you can always make it through. If you have dreams in life and someone is trying to pull you down, you just need to rediscover yourself and keep going.”

While speaking on his contribution to the entertainment industry, Koffi said he has made his mark on virtually every sector.

“I am the only entertainer, comedian, actor, singer, producer, director that has an award in everything in entertainment,” he said.

“I just play around with everything around me, I have acted different kinds of roles. For me it is just being you. Continuously been you, and that for me is fulfillment.”

Koffi, who is married with four children, said his kids are naturally gravitating towards showbiz without any pressure from him.
