I warned my wife never to go through my phone- Comedian Gordons
Top Nigerian comedian, Gordons in a recent interview revealed how his wife has been able to cope with the girls that come around him.
See excerpts of his interview from The Sun,
How do you cope with female attention?
When you see women hanging around you, it is a sign that you are doing well; women don’t hang around failure. Some of these women come to you because you are a star. But I don’t want anybody dampening my star, so I deal with them intelligently because they are fans. As an entertainer, we need fans.
With all the ladies chasing Gordons, is your wife not jealous?
As an entertainer, you should educate your wife. I told my wife ‘don’t ever go to my phone because you would see what will break your heart. Just trust me because I do a job that is slippery, if I am not looking for them, they are looking for me. It is the nature of the job’.
Number two, ‘if my phone rings, give it to me, let me answer it’. We don’t go through each other’s phones. It is a line that we don’t cross. I also educated my wife that ‘whenever you see my pictures on Instagram, it is nothing; this is all to make sure that there is food on the table. The only time when you will get alarmed is if you hear I am getting married to someone else’.
For how many years did you date her?
I dated her for seven years.
Was it love at first sight?
It wasn’t. If it were love at first sight we would have broken up at sight (laughter). We were in the same department at DELSU (Delta State University) studying Integrated Science. She was always coming to me for assignments and all those stuff; I was really brilliant back in school (laughter).
As a successful comedian, could you give us five success tips in comedy?
The five tips to success in comedy are number one, creativity. Number two, originality. You got to have your own niche and be recognised. Number three is to be spontaneous, which means as a comedian, you should be able to convert anything into laughter. Number four, you got to be humble and witty because comedy is wisdom, and number five, you should not forget the God factor. No man can do anything unless God is with him. So, even if you are creative and spontaneous, you should not forget the God factor.
