Veteran stand-up comedian cum Nollywood actor, Atunyota Akpobome, better known as Ali Baba, has opened up on the birth of the triplets with his wife, Mary.

Naijaonpoint recalls that Ali Baba stirred reactions on April 1 after announcing on his Instagram page that he and his wife, Mary, welcomed triplets, but many people considered ... a popular ‘April fool’ prank.

In an interview with Punch, the comedian stated that he had mixed emotions when he learnt that his wife was expecting triplets.

He said, “I felt indifferent, but I was also happy.”

Speaking on issues in the entertainment industry, Ali Baba said there was a much more severe issue in Nigeria than the moral controversies raised by skit makers and content creators.

He said, “The thing is that your moral yardstick is not gauged by skit makers or content creators. It is based on parental control, government policies, and the educational systems. It is what the society does that is mirrored. For instance, the boy who is making skits about prostitution is not the one who caused it. That does not mean they should promote it all the time though. But, when you have people surviving in corruption and nothing is done to them, have any of those things being banned? No! But, morality is now the big issue when corruption is a bigger problem.
