Adesokan Adedeji Emmanuel, popularly known as Shank Comics, has opened up about his past experiences, including his involvement in fraudulent activities commonly referred to as “yahoo” before finding success as a comedian and skit maker.
Shank Comics, who holds a degree in electronics and electrical engineering, admitted that after graduating from the university, he briefly dabbled in yahoo, which is a term often associated with internet fraud. In 2019, he traveled to Osogbo and joined a group of individuals to learn about yahoo activities.
During his time learning these fraudulent activities, he spent six months trying to make money through these means but was unsuccessful in his endeavors. Despite his efforts, he did not earn any income from it.
