Maryam Apaokagi, a popular Nigerian sketch artist known as Taaooma, has revealed that she is not an extrovert.
She stated that despite her celebrity status, she enjoys staying at home because it allows her to reflect on herself and makes life easier for her.
Taaooma revealed this in a recent interview with The Punch when she was asked how she deals with the expectations that come with fame.
However, the happily married content producer revealed that when she feels overwhelmed, she goes to the movies and spends time with her family.
Taaooma explained that she takes tips and complaints very seriously, and that when she hears them, her team immediately starts working on improving certain issues.
She said; “I don't really notice a significant change, and that may have to do with the fact that I am an indoor person and always have my space to reflect on the past. That makes it easy for me to deal with the tension.”
“Every time I feel overwhelmed, I take a break, go to the movies, go out to dinner, and spend time with my family to get over that feeling. As for criticism online, I'm open to comment. I take the feedback, sit down with my team and work on it.”
In the same interview, the online comedian also revealed that she would have loved to collaborate with the late comic actor Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe.
“Baba Suwe (memory) was the African celebrity I would love to work with. But when my team contacted him, he was not feeling well. I loved him so much as a child. He had the banter and puns that matched one of my characters,” she said.
