Efe Oderhohwo, the popular Nigerian skit maker, who is also known as Carter Efe, has explained that since he became a father, he has stopped doing certain things.
Speaking in an interview with Saturday Beats, he said, “I do things differently now because I am a dad. There are some things I did before that I don’t do again, such as posting videos of myself online dancing and wearing only boxers. It (fatherhood) has made me upgrade my craft. I also can’t keep doing the same things, because people get tired with time.”
He also stated that he had no plans to separate his comedy from music.
He said, “Music is a gift from God to me. When I came out with the ‘states and capital’ song, it went viral beyond my expectations. I know it is a funny song but then, I am a comedian. I usually obey my instincts. And, when I feel like it, I call another artiste. Music and comedy are not distinct for me, and I won’t be separating them.”
Speaking on why he likes Lagos, the Delta State-born content creator said, “Everyone in Lagos is a ‘hustler’. Everyone is determined and don’t joke with their business. I love Lagos, because it is a place where one can easily make it. People don’t sleep in Lagos. Even me, I barely sleep at night.”
Highlighting some of the simple things he misses about his life before he became popular, he said, “Before, I could go out to play football or take a walk to something for myself. Now, I cannot do things anyhow. I miss a lot of things, but as long I am making money, I am okay.”
Asked what he looks out for in a partner when going into a relationship, he said, “I look out for character and her relationship with God before getting into a relationship. However, I am currently in one.”
