Popular comedienne and actress, Chioma Omeruah popularly known as Chigul has said she discovered her passion for entertainment while mimicking people as a kid.
In an interview with Punch, Chigul said she sees herself as a drug peddler who “peddles joy”.
“I think I was born to entertain people. Ever since I was a child, I have always been good at mimicking people. I was the entertainer in my house ever since I was little and I think this is part of the reason I was put on earth; to make people happy. I love it and it also makes me feel good. I am like a doctor or drug peddler but the drug I peddle is joy,” she said.
On how she got into the entertainment industry, she said, “I have always had a passion for all aspects of entertainment; singing, dancing and even comedy but on my scale of preference, comedy was last on the list. When I got back to Nigeria after spending about 12 years in America, Chigul happened one day through a Blackberry voice note that was broadcast. That was how comedy took centre stage. I think God is using comedy to open the door for every other facet of my gift.”
