The Lagos commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC), Obafaiye Shem, appeared on LIVE TV show to defend job racketeering in the Corp. He goofed at the simplest question – What is the website of NSCDC? He stuttered and started a national comedy sensation.
The goof sparked country wide comedy sensation and soon became a hyper brand, exploited by both fun-seekers and entrepreneurs - including big business. Some became Youtube stars, others carved a business and made profits from the 'brand' - that it became.
Here are the most enterprising use of the jokes sparked by the goof, "My Oga at the Top" stuttered by the NSCDC boss.
