Adesokan Adedeji Emmanuel, widely recognized as Shank Comics, has openly discussed his remarkable journey, transitioning from an initial foray into internet fraud (commonly known as “Yahoo”) to discovering his true calling in the world of comedy.
The content producer, who holds degrees in electronics and electrical engineering, revealed that after completing his college education, he delved into the world of internet fraud, seeking opportunities in the “Yahoo” scene.
He candidly shared that in 2019, he embarked on a journey to Osogbo to learn the tricks of the trade from local practitioners of internet fraud.
Shank Comics acknowledged that, despite dedicating six months to mastering the craft of internet fraud, he failed to yield any income from it.
After half a year of fruitless efforts, Shank Comics disclosed that the individual who had mentored him in internet fraud rewarded him with an iPhone 6.
