    I am sooooooo happy for this guy! I was praying that this will propel him to greater heights. God bless whomever that posted that clip on social media. I have always found francis very funny but felt he was underrated. Glad to see his hardwork over all these yrs finally pay off.

    I’m so happy for this guy, it’s great to see him capitalised on his trade mark. This skit always makes me laugh and put me in a happy mood and it’s absolutely great to see the man behind it gets rewarded.

    I have always loved this guy. His humour is not forced at all. He is funny. The first time I saw him in a movie was in the movie ‘Christmas chicken’ starring Okey Bakassi and Patience Ozokwo. I laughed sooo much. Congrats. No force can stop you when it’s your time.

    Watched the original gerrarehere clip again and almost peed on myself laughing! 😀 :’) So pleased for Mr Odega. When it’s your turn to shine, nothing can stop the shinning really. The movir he used this line in is so old and I doubt many people have even seen it before and I won’t be surprised if he was paid pittance for his role. Yey see how many years down the line, he’s reaping the rewards of his labour.
