In truth, the road
to success is strewn with thorns. If you doubt this maxim, ask Bill Gates and Dangotes of this world.
That perhaps explains why the sojourn of Emmanuel
Iwueke
into the world of fame appears striking.
Fondly called Craze
Clown
or Baba Ade (by fans), the Imo State-born maverick has gained a
massive retinue of followers on Instagram and other social media over the years.
To some, he is just one of those few comedians out there who shot to limelight
by accident. To Iwueke, medicine, not comedy, was the original calling he
had. But fate has a way of throwing events across one’s path even when one does
not call for it.
Just in case you are
wondering,
How then did Craze Clown get his big break in the world
of comedy skit?
Listen to his story
as the NAIRABET ambassador relives his
journey via a post on Instagram shortly
after he graduated as a medical doctor from a University in far away Ukraine this year.

“Before y’all
start seeing videos and pictures of me in my graduation gown doing crazy stuffs.
I need to explain the depth of the happiness I feel being a graduate after almost 10 years of
chasing medicine (while doing comedy by the side of course) … only a few would
understand my joy and how I express it …
“Having to write JAMB so many times that I even started
retailing Jamb Scratch Cards
having to accept a course you never wanted just to leave home so people will
stop asking ‘When you go start school?’ … Having to tell lies upon lies about why you are still at home … having to
accept a course you know nothing about so you just get an admission and leave
home from frustration …
“Having to finally
get an admission to University Of Legon,
Ghana
, for medicine (my choice) and dropped out a year later because school
fees was doubled or tripled, had to go back to Square One looking for admission again and ‘affordable’ one this
time … having to stand outside the Ukraine
Embassy, Abuja
for days, weeks and months eating only ‘Lacasera’ and ‘Gala’ waiting
for interview.
It was like Judgment Day at that embassy. Some
people go in for interview and come out smiling while some others come out
crying. It was like HEAVEN AND HELL
SENTENCE
. But using my God given ‘Igbo
man skills,
’ I was able to get the visa and came to Ukraine … having to
balance school and entertainment
which I have already deployed to get small change.
“However, tragedy
visited me one day. I lost a Big Part
of me on November 7, 2015 when my Dad
passed away
(may his soul rest in peace). I was forced to go out of school
and shut down my social media accounts for a month because the shock was
unbearable.
 

“Having to look
out for myself and family was a responsibility I never planned for but I stood
up to it. I just wanna say THANK YOU LORD … I therefore dedicate
this (graduation) to my Dad, I actually did it for you! I know you are not with
us anymore but you still live in our hearts and I miss you so DAMN much, dad! …
And to my first love, momma. Your undying love gave me the right push, let me
also say ‘I luhh yuhh’ to my FRIENDS-turned-family and my supporters all over
the world.
“The boy issa DOCTOR OF MEDICINE! Respek on d name!
#DrCraze #DoctorOfMedicine.”
The End!
Quite an inspiring
read, isn’t it?
This, my friend,
is the rough tuff most successful
entrepreneurs, professionals, oil moguls, politicians and academicians

often pass en route their success drive.
I don’t know what
you are thinking or going through at this moment. Whatever it is, please don’t
give up. Hold on a while longer till you eventually see the light at the end of
that dark tunnel.
Don’t stop believing… You can do it!!!
