Akpororo's biography and history
Akpororo at Royale Hotel, Enugu


Hilarious Nigerian Comedian, Jephthah Bowoto, officially known as Akpororo was born in Warri, Delta State, where he grew up and had his early education. Akpororo is a native of Ilaje in Ondo state, Nigeria.

Akpororo's early career


He started out as a local gospel vocalist. Situations forced him to engage in comedy competitions, which he really does not like doing. So, he contested for the National Comedy Challenge by Opa Williams and gracefully won the Calabar Zone of the challenge.

They landed Lagos for the final phase of the competition, but Akpororo didn't make it to the top and wasn't picked as the overall best.

In 2009, Akpororo took a bold step and contested for the "AY Open mic" award, unfortunately he lost to Whalemouth, a comedian who took him down so easily and got a 50k cash gift after his final Jaw-dropping performance at the competition.

Akpororo lost to Whalemouth so much that the audience echoed "WAKA" even before he finished performing his final "Joke". You would pity him every time you watched the video. This didn't discourage the multi-talented comedian anyway.

Comedian Akpororo history


Akpororo turns upsidedown any stage he mounts and cracks the ribs of his audience out. He calls himself the "comedian with too much swag and too much anointing".

His jokes are mostly church-related and also he talks about his community a lot, Okokomaiko, which landed him human right ambassador for the people of Okokomaiko by the Constitution of Awareness and Liberty Initiative.

Jephthah Bowoto performs in mega churches like HICC, HGCC in Lagos, COZA in Abuja, The Rock Cathedral and many others, putting smiles on peoples face and at the same time praising God.

His jokes are creative and based on reality. One of his popular jokes which rotates around the church is the "Circular worship" joke, when a girl who rocked herself and reviled with friends in a club the previous night which unfortunately was on Saturday night was asked to take the worship and praise section.

The girl anchored the worship section making a buzzing sound and humming for over 40 minutes before a gospel song dropped in her mind. After the gospel song, a circular song followed.

Another funny joke you'll remember from Akpororo is the "neighbor in tongues" joke where he said he had a neighbor who spoke tongues every time he was approached for 2 years. But on a faithful day, he did a fast and had no money to "break" the fast and Akpororo was frying Turkey.

The smell hit the man's nose from Akpororo's room and he started tracing the smell of the Turkey. When he got to Akpororo's room, he asked, speaking English for the first time in 2 years, "Akpororo, na you dey fry turkey?", Akpororo answered, "Yes".

The neighbor asked, "Abeg you fit give me small make I chop?", Funnily, Akpororo answered him in tongues, since he has been blasting them with tongues for the past two years.

The neighbor then gripped Akpororo by the neck and whispered in his ear "Abeg, gimme small, na die I dey, na die".

In an interview, the comedian stated that he cracks jokes about lunatics. According to him, he does that because he once served as an attendant to mentally deranged individuals who resorted to his church for deliverance and spiritual solutions.

Being a vocalist, Akpororo does strictly gospel songs and is pretty good at it. He admits he came into limelight with his comic talent and not with music.
