Layi Wasabi Early Life

Layiwasabi, whose true name is Isaac Ayomide Olayiwola, is from Osogbo, which is also the home of the Nigerian playwright Duro Ladipo and a significant tie-dye industry hub.

He is an online comedian, content developer, and influencer who rose to prominence thanks to the distinctive tone of his comedic videos.

His mother and his extended family, which included uncles, aunts, and grandparents, took care of him after his father died when he was just two years old.

Layi claimed that his childhood was “quiet” and “without adventure” in an interview with Culture Custodian.

Layiwasabi Education

Isaac Ayomide Olayiwola attended primary and secondary schools in Osun State before moving on to earn his undergraduate degree at Bowen University. Layi thinks that his formal education advanced quickly because of his mother because he studied law at Bowen University.

Layiwasabi, who is currently a National Youth Corper in Ibadan, Oyo State, was admitted to study law when he was fifteen years old.

To summarize how his time in Ibadan has been so far, he wrote in May of this year: “NYSC is after my existence on this blue terrestrial ball.”

Layiwasabi Comedy Career

Layiwasabi began his comedy career as a teenager and is perhaps the only Nigerian comic alive with the Shakespearean line “The world is your oyster” from Merry Wives of Windsor penciled on his Instagram bio.

Layi was in JSS2 when he first hid behind a microphone to try to make people laugh at his secondary school’s talent event. I joined a theatre club called The Emerald Star, which I led until SS3, and I also signed up for stand-up comedy. The night’s high point was when our act was showcased during the talent show. Those were the days when I realized I was meant for this. When I was performing and in rehearsals, I felt incredibly alive and me.

Layi picked up the fundamentals of humor most logically and organically possible by simply watching the frog for a very long time.

His mother, who is a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, brought his Christian heritage to his skits as he was growing up. One of Layi’s most well-known jokes parodies the hammy acting and deus-ex-machina resolutions of the Mount Zion movies, morality soap operas created, produced and acted in by any member of the illustrious Bamiloye family, which entertained almost every Nigerian Christian home from the 1980s to the early 2000s.

In another skit, Layi imagines what it would be like to work for a Nigerian boss who had access to Jesus’ supernatural abilities using the POV technique popular in web humor. He does have a way with words, probably as a result of reading “some Soyinka” and “a chunk of Adichie”.

Layi also engages in some physical humor, as evidenced by his absurdly oversized cloak, which is typically worn by roving Jehovah’s Witness evangelists who are wealthy in a spiritual sense but poor materially.

The main strengths of Layi’s comedy are his verbal prowess and his acting abilities. The former gives his sketches a somewhat literary air, while the latter gives them complexity while letting you know that Nollywood is only two train stations away.

His humor reflects the musical austerity typical of an introvert’s private life, and he describes himself as an introvert—”a gift and a curse”—: No raucous sound effects or pre-recorded cries of “Funke!” or “Apostle will hear of this” are present.

Layiwasabi Girlfriend/Wife

According to rumors, Eniola Korty Olanrewaju, also known as Korty EO, and Layiwasabi are dating.

Internet celebrity Korty Eniola Olarenwaju has a large social media following and is a YouTuber and aspiring filmmaker. She was brought up in the peaceful backstreets of Ibadan with a longing for something bigger than herself. She attended the University of Ibadan to study computer science.

The “Flow, With Korty” interview series on her YouTube channel has included numerous A-list celebrities, including Ashley Okoli, Don Jazzy, Niyi Okeowo, Ayra Starr, BlaqBonez, and Niyi Okeowo.
