He also added that he completed all of his internships in Osogbo, and during that time, he observed lawyers who used to hang around the court premises trying to find clients, influencing his skit content.
Layi admits that he didn’t always get the chance to talk to these lawyers one-on-one, so he had to rely on observation to capture their characteristics for his skits.
From his observations, he deduced what their daily lives might look like, and that became the comedic material he used in his skits.
