So the thing about this interview is that it took me on a journey I went from being all serious to tearing up in the name of laughter and then back to seriousness all over again.
Hey Guys! Today on this segment of the blog is the popular ‘Ayulah’, I once came across a video on Instagram of a couple dancing to an Indian song at their wedding reception and the MC was so serious coordinating the dance, I thought to myself the guests must have had the laughter of their lives but my thought didn’t end there as Ayulah seem to have a great sense of humor who will make an event bubbly, At least people get to see that side of him a lot but there is more that we do not see,I followed him on Instagram and I knew there was more to him, I was certain to get him to share that other part of him and inspire people, so I asked him for an Interview and he warmly granted me one.
Tell us about the Yourself
My name is Ayobami Yusuf popularly known as Ayulah. I am a native of Omu-Aran, Kwara State. I am the 3rd of 5 children. A graduate of Geology from University of Ilorin.
How did you come about the name ‘Ayulah’?
And then, when friends and families had small gatherings, they usually turn to the one who had the confidence to face the crowd. That was how it started for me. But as a professional, my first paid job was on December 5th,2015. It was the 60th Birthday anniversary
Hehehehehehehe. Proudest achievement? I am simply happy with myself. The fact that I am doing what I love and getting paid for it makes me happy. I am glad that within the time I started out, I have been noticed. Not just within my locality but even beyond the shores of Nigeria. I remember a lady called from Dubai and asked how much I’ll charge to anchor her wedding reception. She said she found me on social media and like my work. That’s a small victory worth celebrating.
What was your last appraisal?
What are the top 5 qualities a MC should have?
What would you say to someone who wants to be a Mc?
Being a successful MC is not an overnight task. One good event cannot propel you as an MC to stardom. The role of an emcee is quite demanding and challenging. There are two major tips I’ll like to share with anyone who intends to venture into emceeing
For a beginner, the first step is to get a mentor. Not just as an MC, whatever vocation you have chosen, get someone in your field to mentor you. Someone to guide you by giving you informal transmission of knowledge to get you to where you want to be and beyond. There’s no substitute to having a mentor. I read from Teju Babyface’s book(Secret of the Streets) where he said -‘There are basically two ways of getting wisdom in life: from experience and at the foot of a mentor. Having one without the other is like answering only half a question in an important examination’

ain’t surprise Ayulah is doing dis thou. He sure makes us laugh in Unilorin days and about the Indian thing, I can relate so well. #naworkweyhedeydo
Hehehehehehehehe. Thanks sis #NaTheWorkWeDeyDo ooooo
Congrats Ayula!!! You are getting there soonext in sha Allah. We are so proud of you for the recognitions, cause if you aint doing it well you wont be recognised, More grease to your elbow.
Not many times do we have the opportunity to read about someone we have had direct and close encounter with. More often, the stories are always about someone up there or at a distant land. Ayula’s is one that resonates so well. His story is indeed one that should be shared with many youths in our today’s society. In terms of discovering ones talent and finding ones call, as well as taking them professional, Ayula will be an invaluable resource that most youth can relate to. Professionally, he is truly a master in the act of mceeing. He was the MC at my wedding earlier this year. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to give him a feedback. And maybe I should share it here: He has a deep passion for the job. He displayed a sincere dedication towards making the day memorable for his clients. At my wedding, beside entertaining the audience very well, he paid apt attention to the couple, helping us maintain a ceremonial mood, less distracted by the intervening events around us. In fact, for a shy person as me, Ayulah was the one who saved my day, in spite of my slow responses to him. He maid sure I smiled and dance. He paid close attention to details from the first encounter and followed up. I called him “my MC” because he went over and beyond to add glamor to our day. I believe, and I pray that his job will take him places and earn him an enviable spot among the top and successful in the field.
THIS definitely has made my 2017. Thank you bro
Ayulah is a great man… More grease to your elbow dear friend…
