Commonly called “The Well Fed Comedian,” the ridiculously hilarious entertainer Jedi was born in the late 1970s on the 30th of October to a family of 3 children of which he is the second. He Studied Microbiology at the Lagos State University but had the 'gene' of entertainment in his blood. It wasn’t until 1991 he discovered another part of being a comedian. He was given the opportunity to M.C at a University concert and it turned out to be a huge success. From there he handled a comedy segment that lasted for two years with Ayo Makinde & Dele Agadumo a.k.a Christol on Eko 89.75 FM on the program "Make it happen".

Jedi has evolved over the years not just as comedian and an MC but he has a unique dimension to him that separates him from his peers and that is his dedication and passion to the things of God. He is an entertainer but he has surrendered his vision to the plan and purpose of God. He is a man that has been blessed with many talents and has not limited his capabilities. He was the first Nigerian to perform on stage at the Carlin Academy in U.K. He also has a heart for mentoring up-coming comedians, thus he organized a professional seminar for those who have decided to take up a career in the entertainment industry. The seminar featured speakers like Fela Durotoye, Mr Akinyemi Akinwuntan, Ali Baba, and Dom Lawson.
Jedi has been nominated for the Best Up-Coming Comedian National Comedy Awards 2006, Best Comedian of the year for the Dynamix Awards 2006, 2007 & 2008, and Best Comedian of the year for Nigeria Entertainment Award 2008. He has received numerous honorary awards such as the Award for Excellence-Lagos State University, Rare Gem Award-Sickle Cell Initiative, and TitbitzNews Celebrity Recognition Award, to name a few. In 2007 Jedi embarked on his first solo album (G-Pikin Project), and after two years the exceptional album was released in July of 2009. Fans have referred to his songs as “feel good music” others have called it “Gospel with an inspirational vibe.”
Jedi is a brand of relevance to any and every crowd, his ability to make people laugh and his adaptability to every environment is impeccable. These qualities are what has made Jedi the multi faceted artist that he is today, and would carry him into his future achievement.
