In secondary school, Tunde was known to be a funny kid. He would constantly listen to various Nigerian comedians and mimic their jokes to his friends back in school. Moving into the University Of Lagos, Tunde realized he had a talent in comedy and eventually decided to make the best of it.
As an entertainer, Tunde officially began his career as a comedian. In 2007, Tunde Ednut was invited to perform at the Dynamiks Awards in Nigeria. The award show was a big deal, it had a good number of top media and entertainment names in attendance. Tunde delivered an amazing comedy show that his performance received a standing ovation. Unknown to him, his life was about to take a major turn for a brighter future. During his performance, Tunde caught the attention of some top media names at that time such as; Femi Amusan and the Black Nights Entertainment crew (A top Nigerian entertainment company based in the Uk at that time).
Following his amazing display of talent on stage, Tunde was invited for a performance in the UK, and like the saying goes, the rest is history. Tunde was fortunate to gain some maximum exposure for his brand and he moved on to perform alongside some of the biggest names currently topping the charts in and out of Africa. During his stay in the UK, Tunde made a name for himself as one of Nigeria’s finest comedians based in the UK at that time.
Unlike his comedy career, Tunde’s musical ambitions were short lived. Tunde’s passion for music started brewing at an early age. He was in the youth choir of his church while he was still in Nigeria. He eventually moved on to record a number of tracks, but his most successful track was Catching Cold Remix featuring Dr. Sid.

Now, we are not sure what transpired between Tunde and Wizkid, but Ednut was on his Instagram Live and was very vocal using a lot of F-words in regards the young legend Wizkid. We are not sure if he was only trying to get some attention from Wizzy or if Wizkid had once snubbed him. Whatever the case may be, he was not shy to share his feelings with the world! On the bright side, he likes Davido.
