When you hear of a Master of Ceremony whose comic skills are fascinating, certain people come to the mind of many and one of those include ‘Xtreme.
Oluwatosin Olajide Kupoluyi, popularly known as Xtreme is a Master of Ceremony, Comedian and an actor. This ‘singular’ bachelor as he calls himself, is a graduate of International Relations from Lead City University, and also has a Masters degree in Diplomacy and Strategic Studies from the University of Lagos. “It might sound cliche” he said, “but I started my career in church, first as a chorister, before I realized I could successfully anchor an event” he continued. Gradually, he ‘grew out’ of the church and started professionally in 2006, but would not attribute his fast rising career to any special event or skit, because for him, his consistency has brought him this far.
As a person, the need to empty himself before he dies drives him to be a better person all the time.
Xtreme is telling everyone to anticipate a number of things in 2018, some of which includes his comedy show – XtremeLIVE, his television series, which he is working on. He also hopes to get more movie features and most importantly, he is working on creating a better brand for himself. It won’t be wrong to say Xtreme is unique and some of the things that makes him unique are his flexibility and most interestingly, his versatility. Well, one can just say, he is unpredictable.
He acknowleges that challenges might be inevitable, but he never sees anything as a big challenge, rather, a drive to be a better person. On a lighter note, however, he says ‘Challenges’ are for those who stay in Ibadan! (Those who know, know).
For his fans, Xtreme says:
“You make me do what I do, and I am so honored and grateful. You can be whatever you want to be. Don’t let anybody discourage you. I was discouraged, but I kept at it. Keep doing what you know how to do best, one day, it will blow up in everyone’s face”.
