My brother Tee A is 40 today.
I met Tee A in 1998 through Soji Dehinde who had recommended we contact him to host YAFEM – the music awards I was organising.
Tee A hosted the event for free, together with another good friend of mine Henry Ekechukwu.
He was already in UNILAG at the time, and already a busy entertainer.
We’ve remained in touch regularly since then although we only got closer around the late 2000s.
I’m not given to birthday celebrations. But I admit some milestones should not go without befitting acknowledgement. Especially for a gentleman that is a source of joy and pride to me and my family, to our industry and in fact, the entire nation.
Now that Tee A has moved up to join the big men in the 40+ league (I see you Steve Babaeko, Toni Kan, Abisoye Fagade, Ayo Animashaun, Kelvin Orifa, and co), I hope he’ll be honest with himself and follow his true calling: Cooking. Trust me, he’s been wasting his time with comedy.
