The young Nigerian comedienne rose to fame some three years ago after her Youtube skits went viral. In February, she landed a role in a Disney Hollywood movie, with the news being received with joy by fans and the media from Nigeria and the West African region.

The 7-year-old girl was discovered and managed by her uncle Mark Angel and her popularity has crossed Nigeria’s borders and the continent as she has performed at comedy events in West and East Africa while her Youtube skits and page have gained more than a million views and subscribers respectively.

She is reported to be the first African to have one million subscribers on her YouTube comedy channel. Emmanuella has won several awards including the 2016 Best New Comedienne and Princess of Comedy awards at the Afro-Australia Music and Movie Awards in Australia.
