Comedian Mz Gabbie: People Think We Use Skit-making To Do Runs

Nigerian comedian and, Mz Gabbie, also known as Flora, has said people find it hard to believe that female skit-makers make their money through skits.

She explained that she and her female colleagues do extra to get noticed because they are often judged wrongly.

According to Mz Gabbie, whose real name is Omozele Gabriel, people accuse successful women in the industry of either being sponsored by men or using skit-making as a guise to sell their bodies.

Speaking in an interview with The Punch, she said; “Female skit makers do extra to get noticed and I will speak for them. If one goes outside of her character, people will think one is trying to attract men. Some people believe if a female skit maker is achieving success, then that person is sleeping with one man or one is using it as a cover up for one’s hook-up plan. It is difficult for women in skit making because we have to always prove ourselves that we are equally funny and that we can equally create content.”

added; “This is exhausting sometimes. If you ask someone to name skit makers in Nigeria, the person might have named five male skit makers before they call a female skit maker. We are doing a lot and we are breaking boundaries. I feel like we should be recognised too, just the way our male counterparts are being recognised.”

However, she said that her highlight of 2022 was when she performed at ZicSaloma’s show in London.
