Obviously, everybody know the comedian of repute, Julius 'De Genius' Agwu, the humourist who has taken his comedy beyond the shores of Africa.
In the first edition celebrity edition of the SuperMom reality hosted by Sola Fajobi, stories of various Nigerian celebs and their mothers, narrating and re-enacting their experiences have been aired.
The first two episodes were aired on Sunday, June 10 and June 17, 2012, and featured comedian Julius D’ Genius Agwu and singer Olu Maintain and their mothers. Both mothers told amazing stories of how they single-handedly struggled to take of their children in tougher times.
"Julius started hawking at age six because he was born into a poverty stricken home in Choba, Obio/ Akpor Government Area of Rivers.‘ The comedian’s father was a bricklayer and his mother was a petty trader, who was also involved in fish farming and subsistence farming," Julius' mum said.
The ageless woman, Mrs. Agwu also said she wanted him to become a carpenter because he was so troublesome. The struggle was tough and he had to help contribute to the livelihood of the family by selling pap at a tender age of six.
According to her, "Julius often went to school late, as he would wake up at 5am everyday to hawk, and after school, he’d continue hawking. For going to school late, he had to stay in front of the class as ordered by the teacher, to entertain his colleagues and teacher. Though it was meant to be a punishment, but those days of facing the class to entertain them was a preparation for an art that would make him a reference point." She further said that might have been part of the reason, indirectly, that he is such a successful comedian today. Click the link below to go to...SHOCKER!!! Rev. Chris Okotie’s Love Child Expose?

Hi Friend,At work and just saw your twitter sautts about that home birth article .I am asking you to REALLY think AGAINST having a home birth. This has nothing to do with the competency of midwives by any means, I think they are very capable people, however I'm sure even the most skilled health care worker could face an unpredictable, scary and unmanageable situation outside of the hospital. At the end of the day it matters less how or where you delivered your baby but that you delivered a healthy one. It's the worst thing to think about worst case scenario but have every available res0urce at an arms length just in case Although I know little baby Bell will be perfect xoxo Mandee Reply this thread
