Standup comedian, Olufemi Fagade, popularly known as Omo Baba, has said that his most embarrassing moment was when a fan branded him as being ugly while on stage.

He revealed this on Saturday while appearing as a guest artiste on Channels Television’s Sunrise.

“I will never forget the ‘nite of a thousand laugh 2004’. I went on stage after my introduction, I forgot all my lines. One guy sat at the front and was calling me: “O boy you ‘woh woh’, loud.

“I mean it was so loud and it now worsened the situation that I had forgotten my jokes. He now topped it up with what I have not seen. I have never seen myself as being ugly before,” he said.
