However, he was born and raised in Aba, Abia state, in the country’s south-eastern region, where he got his primary and secondary school education.
2. How old is Funnybros, and when was he born?
Funnybros can be regarded as a proper Gen Z; he was born on July 26, 2000. The 22-year, however, didn’t have an easy upbringing as he lost his mum at a very young age and had to learn how to survive without a mother from very early in life.
He once said during an interview that Sabinus is his most significant influence and one of the reasons he became a skit maker.

3. Which university did he attend, and what course did he study?
Onwuka is a student of Physical science at Abia state university. He is a 300-level undergraduate at the southeastern tertiary institution.
Funnybros disclosed during a recent interview that even though he had always been an actor from very early in life, he went into skit-making in 2019 during his 100-level days at Abia state university.
5. How did he become a Comedian?
Funnybros started his career as an entertainer at a young age, through the church, after joining the theatre and acting group at his parent’s church.
He said while he joined the group as an actor, he later observed that he was a born jester. Onwuka revealed during a chat with Vanguard newspaper that he noticed how he could make people laugh effortlessly because of his speech or his gestures and facial expressions.
And this was how he gradually and consciously began cultivating his comical disposition.
6. Other talents apart from comedy and his most significant influence?
The young actor is also an accomplished musician who has released multiple records and singles. His discography has songs like Account Number, Oru nakwu ugwo, Odiram Easy ft Yung Daddy, and Enwe Otu Oshi Mee.
He is easily recognisable for his style of carrying a “Ghana must-go bag” and dressing in a village setting. He is famous for popularising the slang “Ikotaram”, which is an essential part of the persona.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng recalls reporting that famous comedian and skit maker Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Ejekiru, better known as Oga Sabinus’s recent political leaning, is something that many Obidients would love to hear.
The Port-Harcourt-born content creator is not particularly famous for his political opinions or association. However, he has recently begun to show more interest in the affairs of his fatherland.
Mr Funny recently joined a political movement called Youths in Politics, where he said it was high time for Nigerian youths to make their voices heard and participate actively in the decision-making process of their country.
