Skit maker Yemi Elesho, son of veteran Yoruba comic actor Adewale Elesho, has opened up on his humble beginnings.

In an interview with media personality, Amina Atiaru, Elesho revealed he ran away from his father’s house at a young age to Ibadan, where he sold Aboniki balm and face towels for survival.

Elesho, in the video posted on Instagram Wednesday, also shed some light on the strained relationship between him and his father upon their first meeting at a young age.

The comic revealed he eventually ran away from his father’s house back to Ibadan, Oyo State, where he sold the analgesic, face towel, and a fizzy drink known as ‘Tampico.’

He said, “When I ran out of the house, I later left Elesho’s house. I left in 2011.”

Briefly cutting him short, the host asked if the comic’s father wasn’t upset after he ran away.

Elesho responded saying, “Only a person you see can express their anger.

“I left. I went to Iwo Road, Ibadan, where I sold face towels, Aboniki, and bread in the traffic.

“I also went to the University of Ibadan, where I sold Tampico just outside the school gate.”

The skit maker also disclosed that he learned how to operate an auto-rickshaw, known in Nigeria as ‘Keke,’ for business purposes.
