7 year old Nigerian comedian, Emmanuella attained fame after featuring in a comedic skit. The skit went viral and the “this is not my face” tagline was curated. Subsequently, a YouTube channel, “MarkAngelComedy” was created. It is where the young comedian releases videos regularly, with the help of her management.
