Officer Woos, the Nigerian comedian, says skit makers tend to sexualise women in their videos because it generates massive views.
The skit maker spoke with TheCable Lifestyle at the semifinal of this year’s ‘Glo Battle of the Year’, which was held at Eko Convention Center.
Woos, whose real name is Jubril Gbadamosi, said skits that sexualise women are the most viewed on streaming platforms.
“Creativity boils down to the content creator. There are many content creators that don’t sexualise women, and there are others whose skits are carved around women,” he said.
“If you talk about regulation, people still watch skits where women are sexualised. There have more views than skits where women are not sexualised.
“So, what are we trying to say. You can’t tell them they are wrong when they are garnering massive views than those that are not sexualising women.
“And I also think it boils down to what the audience wants. What are they are watching. These are the contents you find 100 million views on because that is what they (the audience) want. And everyone is out there trying to make money.
When asked if skit-making is capable of funding the exorbitant lifestyles skit makers flaunt on social media, Officer Woos said the business is lucrative enough to fund it.
“It’s only skits. Only if people know how much YouTube and Facebook pay per content,” he said.
Officer Woos rose to the limelight after featuring in Broda Shaggi’s skits as a police officer. He is known for his trademark stammer, which stands him out amongst a myriad of Nigerian skit makers.
He boasts of a series of skits like ‘Woos the Court Clerk’, ‘Mami Water series’, ‘Delivery Boy’, ‘Sugar Mummy series’, and ‘Sales Boy’
