Babatunde Abiodun Adewale, popularly known as Tee A, is set to celebrate his 20th anniversary in the entertainment industry with a concert. Tyme Out With Tee A 20th anniversary dinner holds on Sunday October 2 at Intercontinental Hotel, in Lagos.
The concert is also an opportunity for the comedian to host friends, partners, clients and family members to a dinner concert in Lagos. Performing at the event are pop artist D’Banj, Wande Coal, and tribute performances from industry greats like Ali Baba, Basketmouth, Basorge Tariah Jnr and many other colleagues.
‘It’s a major personal celebration for me, but to be honest, I see it as an opportunity to celebrate the success of stand up comedy in Nigeria, and the acceptance of our genre as a form of credible art within the creative community, he says. ‘It’s my 20th anniversary, but I would have been on the streets today, if the society did not buy what I had to sell.
Babatunde Abiodun Adewale was born at Island Maternity hospital, in Lagos island, on December 19, 1974, to Folashade Ricketts and John Adewale, of Oyo State.
