I’ve worked as an established comedian in the UK and abroad since 2000. My style is quirky clean observational humour, tight joke structures, personal topics and creative musical jokes.


I have toured the UK many times, performed comedy on the UK comedy circuit, corporate shows, festivals, clubs, conferences, schools and churches to name a few venue types. 


Social commentary work is really important to me  through radio, TV  and my own social networks to discuss current issues, news reviews and debate issues affecting all of us.

Finding JOY

I was born into the Biafran war in Nigeria and found in the bush and taken to an orphanage, it was there I was miraculously trans-racially adopted by a white British family and brought to the UK aged 2.


Here like in William Shakespeare's The Tempest my great journey commenced. The dark mountains of lost identity, family, self harm, racism, bullying and eating disorders loomed. Over many years I overcame such trials through my Christian faith, quite frankly - Gods grace made it happen and I'm alive to tell my story.

These trials shaped me into the woman I am today.  I have overcome my past and I'm committed to helping others succeed in similar life trials.

This website is dedicated to my mum & dad, family, friends and all those who never stopped supporting in my past and present. Special thanks to Dr Perlita Harris a pioneer/specialist/adoptee on transracial adoption who devoted her life to helping people like me overcome and understand this complex subject.  She lost her fight against cancer in 2018 

Thank you. Love always wins and remains
