Comedy for me started when I was in my father’s house. My father is a very funny man. I am not one of those that would say certain things to make my growing up days sound like a bed of roses," he began.

Continuing, Ushbebe said, 'I grew up in the Air Force base and if you know anyone that grew up there, you can ask of Baba Congo. That is what they call my father. Just imagine the nickname my father has, Congo, who bears a name like that if not a funny man? He is a funny man, a clown, and that is the kind of house I grew up experiencing funny things. My house was like that Fuji House of Commotion when we had a full house. Because of my background, I went to the university to study Theatre Art. Even in my secondary school, I was the head of the drama society and I held the same position during my NYSC and in my church. In fact, I have been doing drama for a very long time and I call myself a ‘dramarian’.

Concluding he said, 'The only thing I can’t do is act because I don’t like to stay in a place for too long, so I decided to stick to comedy. Besides, the money actors collect is too small; when they increase their money, I will start acting.'
