DFI: Good day Sir, Please may we meet you?
CHIMEFRANCIS: My name Is CHIMEFRANCIS
I am a standup comedian, online publicist, filmmaker, and i work for DerivingJoyDigital.
DFI: It Is nice meeting you sir, so Sir can you tell us how growing up was like for you?
CHIMEFRANCIS: Growing up was cool. I was alone most part of it. My mum made sure I attended the best of schools and guided me jealously in my academics but I still always wanted to do my thing. It was a transient kind of growing up. It was worth it.
So you can say you were a kind of introvert?
CHIMEFRANCIS: I was all by myself. I played with myself. I did things alone. I seek happiness all by myself
DFI: wow, that’s exciting to hear,
Did growing up influence your career?
CHIMEFRANCIS: Yes it did. Because I was alone I was always into creative stuffs. I did draw, dance, mimic football commentaries, do my own make shift TV shows, and act often in plays. Use Canter’s to organize football leagues all by myself.
DFI: So you are an artist?
If I give a picture of mine, you can draw it?
CHIMEFRANCIS: To an extent. Might not be really perfect but it will come out well.
What has been your experience in the entertainment world so far?
CHIMEFRANCIS: It has been challenging for me yet a jolly good ride so far.
What inspired you to get into the media and entertainment industry?
CHIMEFRANCIS: The love and the joy it brings.
Since it was Inborn, it just felt like something I could go into, harness my talents, and feed off it.
Would you say there is a progress or how would define success in your field of work?
CHIMEFRANCIS: I will define success as; when you set a target and you accomplish, that is success.
DFI: So far so good, you have been successful in your careers?
CHIMEFRANCIS: No, not at all. I fight hard. I always fight.
When they come, I fight, and fight, and keep fighting.
DFI: That’s nice to hear.

what has been your sustaing factor?
CHIMEFRANCIS: I have always believed in consistency, learning, unlearning, and relearning. I believe that if I stop doing something it won’t get me to where I want to be anyway so I keep doing it and doing it till it pays off.
DFI: When you were in school, did your career distract you from academics?
CHIMEFRANCIS: Definitely, I just tried to survive the two. My academics suffered it more anyway but I don’t really have regrets chasing a career in Comedy.
