Who is Lasisi?

Lasisi Elenu, whose real name is Nosa Afolabi but is fondly called Lasisi, is a social media influencer and also a Nigerian comedian who posts comic videos on Snapchat and Instagram, with a strong following of 2.2m on Instagram which he began in 2017.

He has also been described as Nigeria’s No, 1 Ranter, an Event MC, and moderator, an actor, content creator, singer, and rapper. The phrase “SumJusAppenRightNow” was gotten from his usual intro in each of his videos where he begins by saying – “Laisisi is here again, something just happened right now.” It can be safely said that the comedian popularised the use of the “wide-mouth” filter – found on Instagram and Snapchat – in Nigeria.
