Richard Ayodeji Makun, better known as AY, continues to inspire us. He is a comedian who is not afraid to explore his other “superpowers”.
AY, who started out mimicking Pastor Chris Okotie of Household of God, has, over the years, taken on broadcasting, acting, writing, producing, movie directing and being an A-class master of ceremonies. He has recently added to his many accolades, the Nollywood Personality of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year awards by Sun Newspaper and Glazia Magazine, respectively.
AY has so far produced three movies, all of which made it to Nollywood box office’s biggest, with 2014 movie 30 Days in Atlanta entering the Guinness Book of World Records as a film with the highest domestic gross of over 160 million naira. The movie was also the highest grossing movie in Nigerian cinema history before the 2016 release of the sequel, A Trip to Jamaica, which beat his previous record.
AY keeps making us proud.
