Ajebo: Primary school mate inspired Tegwolo’s character

Comedian Ajebo has revealed what inspired his popular character in skits, Tegwolo.

In an exclusive chat with The Nation, Ajebo narrated how one of his primary schoolmates inspired the character.

“I had a classmate in primary school, we used to mock him and call him bicycle sit head, he was very stubborn so when I was creating this character I was like all these children that their head is shaped like this bicycle seat can be very stubborn and then that was it,” he began

Continuing, the comedian said, “And then I wanted to relive my childhood experience, most of the things I put out in Tegwolo are my childhood experience, the days of condense, sisi pelebe, ofio, when we played on the street, we played football on the street without a shirt, we played in the rain, I was a rough player growing up and I was a child that my parent discovered on time that I was different.

“You know the way you will catch a child doing something wrong and you will beat the child up, my mum still reminds me and tells my wife till now that beating didn’t work for me but guess what just have a proper conversation with me as a child and that was all so for me that was how I grew up.”
