Nigerian's fastest rising comedian, Njoku Bethel otherwise known as Senator, has sent a warning message down the spines of his many colleagues in the Nigeria standup comedy industry to add reference or credits to their jokes while recycling his jokes or face serious embarrassment.

The comedian stated that the lack of being original and creative could actually be the bane behind joke recycling in the standup comedy industry in Nigeria. He said: “Even in the music industry, you hardly see musicians proudly remixing or performing songs of their colleagues at functions without due reference to the original owners."

Senator hailed the acclaimed king of comedy in Nigeria, Ali Baba when he said: “He gave me a joke down the stage, and when I used it, he got the credit. To me, it never changed how humorous the joke was, as it cracked people's ribs. I use people's jokes, and when I do, I don't fail to reference.”

“Some of us can't be busy creating, while some will be somewhere copying, twitting and recycling without proper reference. I see an act like that as illiteracy; in fact, this is 2014 and I will start embarrassing them now if they fail to change,” he further said.
