My Beard Is My Trademark –Comedian Woli Arole

It is unusual, especially in this part of the world, for an entertainer to attribute his success or popularity among fans to his looks or a natural endowment, but comedian Woli Arole (real name is Toyin Baiyegun) hardly thinks so.

Clearly relishing the popularity and goodwill that he has been enjoying, barely three years after dumping his hard-earned degree from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, for a career in comedy, Arole confessed, in an interview with our correspondent, that he owed his rise to the limelight to his luxuriant beard.

“My beard is my trademark. It is the first thing that my fans notice when they meet me for the first time,” he said.
