Just like we have several male comedians who are known for portraying special characters while on set, we also have other females who dress differently and convey a different message entirely from how they dress in real life.

A number of these comedians and comediennes dress in crazy outfits, apply funny makeup, and transform themselves into caricatures or heightened versions of the characters they are attempting to depict to enhance their humor. As a result, many people do not get to see what a performer looks like beneath all the makeup, hair, and over-the-top outfits that they see on stage.

Hang on with us, as we bring to you a list of how some of your favorite Nigerian comediennes look in real life and on set!


Flora 222

Omozele Gabriel is the beauty behind the fun creator, Flora 222. The actress is an assertive, heavily made-up woman who has no problem humorously expressing herself. According to Omozele, the inspiration for Flora 222 came to her when she called a network customer care agent who was rude to her on the phone.

Omozele herself does not resemble her on-screen character, Flora 222, despite the extensive use of heavy makeup. Here’s a picture of what Omozele Gabriel looks like in real life.

Dirty Grandma


“Dirty Grandma” is a fictional character. Just as the name implies, she is funny and always dirty while on set. The character is frequently seen with powder strewn on her chest and dressed in matronly attire.

However, her real name is Dickson Ruth. She is the woman behind the comic character. She is far from being a grandmother in real life, and she is a young woman in her thirties. She appears to be a completely different person from the Dirty Grandma figure.
