Nigerian YouTube comedian Emmanuella Samuel says she’s set her sight on building a mansion for her mother in 2021.
Emmanuella, 10, revealed the ambition after surprising her mother with a “portable” house on Friday. The kid comedian said she built her mother the house for her supportive and prayerful role in her career.
“I built this for you mom,” Emmanuella said in an Instagram post. “For all the prayers, all the encouragements and support. Mummy I know you said you want a portable house and this is it.”
“But forgive me because I must complete your mansion for you next year. Don’t worry it won’t make us go to hell, my super Christmas mummy. I love you.”
Emmanuella is from Imo State in eastern Nigeria. She was born on July 22, 2010. She first featured in a comedy skit with Mark Angel at the age of five.
