Everyone knows him as Broda Shaggi but Samuel Animashaun Perry is a Nigerian internet sensation, Comedian, Visual Artist, Actor, Director and unexpected by many, a singer. He is graduate of creative arts from the University of Lagos.
Samuel was born on July 6th and he belongs to a family of four, being the first of three boys. His interest in the Arts was influenced by his Late Father who taught drama in Mayflower Junior School, Ogun State. While he was in University, he created numerous characters before he became “Broda Shaggi”.
He admits that he found inspiration for the character when he was passing by the mechanic shop one day and heard the name being called out. His first skit as ‘Broda Shaggi’ was titled ‘Jesu in Mushin’. Since then he has gone on to create so many other contents. Some of his other characters are Akannde Ibadan, Lecturer David and Inspector Perry.
Broda Shaggi has released a few songs namely: Oya Hit Me, Pariwo, Kiri Koko and the most recent, Ori. In 2018, Davido signed him as an artist into the 30 Billion Gang record label.
He has worked alongside ROK Studios and Africa Magic. Some TV productions he has featured in are: Dear Mummy B, Unfinished Business and Ghetto Bred produced by Eniola Badmus. He has also performed for the Governor of Lagos state and Former President, Goodluck Jonathan.
His hilarious skits have earned him nominations such City People Music Award for ‘Comedy Act of the Year’ and The Future Awards Africa Nigeria Prize for Comedy.
The aim of Broda Shaggi’s skits are to pass across a message to his viewers and he admits indeed that he always leaves a piece of wisdom in each skit. He does not identify with the “agbero” character which is why he does not smoke or drink.
He recently completed his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) which he admitted on his Instagram to being an achievement not just for him but for his family and he expressed his gratitude to God for making them proud.
He has not admitted to being in a relationship, so ladies, we think you can still shoot your shot!
