“He raised men to favour me, gave me talent that is making way for me and bringing me before kings.

He further wrote “When I look back, I can't tell how I got here but the one thing I know is that every single person that has bought a cd with my face on the cover, attended my concert, cheered me on,  liked my post, clicked the ' follow' button, laughed at my jokes, taken a selfie, said 'hello' on the streets, waved from a distance, criticized me constructively, told me the truth, loved me....every single one of you.

“I wish I knew every name or could remember every face, but in my heart, that's where you live. You made me, and I'm sincerely grateful.

"To every brand that I represent, it's an honour. I'm proud to be by your side, this is only just the beginning because that boy down the road, he’s still the same guy...still armed with a big dream, and an even bigger God.

Bright Okpocha hands down was the biggest and hottest stand-up comedian in Nigeria for 2015.
