How Mummy Wa Grew Her Comedy Career
According to the comedienne, she had always had a passion for acting. She started acting during secondary school and participated in the school’s stage plays and drama. Also, in the university, she was an active drama club member and participated in church dramas.
Even then, she reiterated that she didn’t take it very seriously as she was just having fun, but it later became a career she wanted to build for herself. Mummy Wa started going for acting auditions after she completed her National Youth Service Corps.
She also trained at Emen Isong’s Royal Arts Academy in Lagos alongside veteran actors like Opeyemi Dada, Sukanmi Adebayo, and others. This undoubtedly developed her acting abilities and prepared her for the acting journey.
She was Launched to Fame By Featuring Alongside Mr. Macaroni
Mummy Wa professionally took off acting in 2018 by creating content on social media. However, she made her major debut as Joyce in the Soap Opera, Tinsel. Even though the show introduced her to the public, Mummy Wa rose to notoriety after she featured in Mr. Macaroni’s comedy series as Mrs. Macaroni. The two comedians are both popular for the slang Freaky Freaky.
Kemi Ikuseedun has two personas: Mama Kez, which she plays out on her social media pages, and Mummy Wa, the fictional wife of the popular comedian Mr. Macaroni. In her comedy series, Mama Kezz is constantly dressed in traditional attire and wears eyeglasses. She dresses like a typical elderly church sister and does not care about giving her husband, Mr. Macaroni, any creepy, freaky emotions.
Recounting how she started acting with Mr. Macaroni, the comedienne stated that while doing her skits as Kemz Mama, he saw her and immediately requested for her to try the role of his wife. In her own words: “I was very surprised when he called me for the shoot. He said he wanted that particular costume and character. And, the rest, as they say, is history.”
Mummy Wa is also an actress and has appeared in some TV series and movies, including:
- Time and Chance
In addition to her comedy skits, Mummy Wa has featured in numerous series of Mr. Macaroni’s comedies. She has also worked with other content creators like MC Shem and Isbae_U and has remained relevant and influential in the Nigerian entertainment industry. She is not only beautiful but very creative in her acting and comedy career. She has exceptional ways of interpreting acting roles and can do any character assigned to her.
Mummy Wa’s Marriage to Mr. Macaroni was Only Fictional
On April 23 and 24, 2022. Nigerian popular comedian Debo Adedayo best known as Mr. Macaroni and Mummy Wa, shared wedding-themed photos of themselves on their different social media pages. Mr. Macaroni captioned his “Engagement today, wedding tomorrow,” while Mummy Wa’s caption read, “Daddy Wa finally paid Mummy Wa’s bride price.”
The photos wherein the duo was seen in traditional and white wedding outfits left the internet agog and caused a lot of stir as fans wondered if actually it was a real wedding or still one of their comedy shoots. However, a few days after he made the post, which happened to be his birthday, Mr. Macaroni tweeted that he wasn’t married to Mummy Wa.
Thanking his fans for their birthday wishes to him, the comedian wrote: “Confession: I’m not married oooo,” followed with a crying emoji.
Mummy Wa, on the other hand, while speaking with the Sunnewsonline, expressed that she finds it funny to learn that people think she is married to Mr. Macaroni. She clearly stated there is nothing romantic between them, even though acting as his wife feels great. “All the daddy and mummy games some people played when they were children, are they together now?” She rhetorically asked.
Mummy Wa is Currently Single
As much as it is known to the public, Mummy Wa is currently single and has not been married before. Perhaps, she might be dating someone but has not revealed it to the public. Meanwhile, the comedian was previously in a relationship with her colleague, Adebayo Ridwan, best known as Isbae U, but the relationship hit the rocks in early 2022.
Speaking about the kind of man she would like to end up with as a husband, Mummy Wa expressed, “My turn off in a relationship is dishonesty and lack of respect. I also look out for someone that is hardworking, supportive, loving and caring.”
