TUNDE EDNUT – The comic, artist and social media honcho
In an industry where history seems to be of no value, it will be an act of injustice for anyone just warming up to Tunde Ednut to be of the opinion that he’s just one of #dem lucky guys with massive following on social media. This lad worked his way up the ladder brick by brick. Hardly can I think of anyone in the entertainment industry today that has transformed from being a comic to a performing artist and also to a social media socialite. It’s only Tunde Ednut that ticks those boxes.
Going through my editorial library in the year 2012, I remember penning down a story on him when he released the song ‘Catching Cold’. Prior to then or after then, he has had songs like My ‘Kinda Song’, ‘Jingle bell’, ‘Catching Cold’ Remix and ‘Buga Reloaded’. If I’m not mistaken, I remember most of his critics that tried to mock his attempt at music suddenly became his card-carrying fans. The songs he churned out were perfect by all criteria. When next you see Tunde Ednut dishing out his views on an artist, I can assure you he knows his onions and has full understanding how the music and entertainment business works.
