Broda Shaggi Opens Up On How He Made it In the Entertainment Industry



Nigerian comedian and musician, Samuel Perry aka Broda Shaggi has revealed that he was pushed to make it in the entertainment industry because of poverty.

“I came from Ikenne in Ogun state. I left Ikene when my father died for Lagos where I lived with my aunt in Makoko area. She was the one who took care of me till l left the university. So, I was neither born with a silver spoon nor grew up in Lekki. Everything started in Makoko,” he said.
