Ace comedian
2016 Speaker


Atunyota Alleluya Akporobomerere (Alibaba) began his professional career with corporate events, appearing on television shows with the likes of Patrick Doyle, Charly Boy and Danladi Bako. He also made cameo appearances on radio shows with Bisi Olatilo, Sani Irabor and Mani Onumonmu. He also worked briefly with Dapo Adelegan of DP Lekki Limited as executive assistant in 1991.

He had made up his mind that he was going to do everything to enhance himself, improve his skill and the service he offered in other words be professional. However at the time there was hardly any precedent to follow because the funny men then were not into Stand-up comedy.

Alibaba spoke at the 2016 RCCG Teap Teens Conference on Your Life, Your Future, Not a Laughing Matter where he highlighted the following:

  • To put food on your table, you need a job
  • You need to be the person responsible for some other person’s success
  • Do yourself the favour of discovering yourself – you must constantly do a critical self-assessment
