‘Thank you for sponsoring our education’ — Ikorodu Bois express gratitude to Otedola

By Our Correspondent


 

Ikorodu Bois, the Nigerian comedy group, has taken to social media to express gratitude to Femi Otedola, the billionaire businessman, for his family’s input in their education.

 

The comic group of five siblings thanked Otedola and DJ Cuppy, his daughter, in a post on Instagram accompanied by pictures of themselves in their graduation attire.

 

The caption reads: We are proud of ourselves that we never let our skits affect our education! Happy Graduation to us!! Thank you for sponsoring our education, sir! Femi Otedola. Thank you, Cuppy Foundation and DJ Cuppy.On to the next level!!!”

 

Reacting in the comment section of the post, DJ Cuppy said she’s “proud of you, my babies” and “always here to support”.

 

Ikorodu Bois shot into the international limelight in 2020 after their comical parody of the trailer for Netflix’s ‘Extraction 2’ went viral.

 

The low-budget remake was well received in Hollywood, and it earned them invitations to the movie’s premiere.

 

Later that year, the group recreated pictures of DJ Cuppy and Temi Otedola, her sister, following their dad’s Ferrari purchase.

 

The siblings mimicked the exorbitant cars with cheap wheelbarrows garishly painted in the colours of the Ferraris.

 

The group’s numerous skits earned them a nomination for the 2021 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, which they lost to Emmanuella, another Nigerian e-comedian.
