Josh2funny: The Tyler Perry Of Nigerian Comedy 

Ayodeji Iyanu Owojori

Comedian, Chibuike Josh Alfred, popularly known as Josh2funny, was born on December 18, 1990, in Nigeria.

He is a Computer Science graduate from the Federal Science and Technical College, Yaba. After graduating, he learnt photography for about two years, before attending a school of performing arts, Qban Centre, in Ikoyi, Lagos.

He is known for his lady-like dressing in his comedy skits and his Madam Felicia moniker. Josh2funny is one of Nigeria’s favourite comedians on Instagram and has a total of 1.4 million followers.

He started his career far back in his secondary school days as a mere hobby before he was advised to take it seriously.


The Nigerian comedian is now doing well, as he has gotten a lot of invites to perform in shows. He has also gone from posting just skits on Instagram to organizing his own comedy show, which he recently launched, named “Josh2funny all of me live.”

Speculations have been ongoing as to whether the comedian is gay or not because of his dressing.

When asked about it, he likened himself to American actor, Tyler Perry, whose role as Madea does not make him a homosexual.

The comedian recently proposed to his longtime girlfriend to further refute this claim.
