His center of operation is in USA so he definitely has more exposure and popularity but our own very Yemi is operating from Nigeria.. thats not a fair competition. Yemi don't mind dem jor, you're our very own KCA winner

@nnenne George anyone purely focused on naija music and entertainment can get to where yemi and funke have gotten to. But not everyone will get to become the host of The Daily Show. Trevor Noah is a south African who beat other Americans to become the host of that iconic show.he deserves it.

Trevor Noah is simply great.He has used his experiences as a kid, his exporsure in life thus far and the present reality to make jokes. Regards to our Nigerian comedians , you all are doing well, but you still a million miles to go. Listen to Trevor Jokes and despite the fact that he is African, his jokes are appreciated globally. He was picked among other contenders by Jon Stewart to be his succesor in the comic-satire "The Daily show". Unlike David Moyes, he is excelling and doing Jon Stewart proud. Nigerian Comedian's take your act to an international level and I don't mean performing for the Nigerian community in London, Dallas, Manitoba etc. Develop your content to an international level.
