- Nigerian comedian, Woli Arole and wife, Oluwatobiloba have welcomed a set of twins into their family
- The ecstatic Arole posted a picture of the little family in the social media platform that launched his rise to fame, Instagram
- The popular entertainer and his wife had been trying to have a baby for the past six years, so are delighted with the realisation of all their hopes and prayers
The comic pastor who shot to fame in his homeland of Nigeria quickly building brand of his own name with the help of almost half a million Instagram followers, is as comfortable performing in a church as on stage.
Briefly.co.za gathers he has a following throughout Africa, but most especially in his native Nigeria.
An actor, international stand-up comedian, viral skit maker MC, and “prophet” rolled into one dynamite package.
Arole whose real name is Oluwatoyin Bayegun, originally found fame on Instagram posting videos of him preaching the gospel in comical ways reminiscent of local prophets.
“My gift of prophecy is inborn and I noticed it at a very tender age. I say things that people don’t say or things that people don’t see. I also say things and they come to pass. I have a very strong spiritual background so I don’t take alcohol or womanise. My background shaped the man that I am today. In fact I always say it that if I weren’t a comedian I would have been a pastor because that was the prophecy when I was younger. I was a unique child and there was nowhere I go to that I do not shine.”
Now that he is in the family way, his fans are probably wondering if they will we be seeing less of him online and in person?
