“The Kumahood movies wasn’t performing so well, there wasn’t anybody to promote our works. This was the time that witnessed the popularity of YouTube… most of us were interested in putting our work on that platform,” he explained.

He further added that “with this move, I was able to take up any role I liked… my fans who knew me for playing action roles were surprised to see me playing comic roles .”

According to Ras Nene who is also known as “Aka Ebenezer” or “Lykee”, most producers who worked with him weren’t in favour of him taking up new roles aside from playing the character of an armed robber in action movies.

“It’s been three years since I started comic movies…now more than ever, peoples’ attention have been drawn to YouTube videos. Viewers don’t worry about the amount of data they spend on watching our videos,” he added
