Comedian Destalker explains why he left undertaker job

Popular Nigerian comedian Oghenekowhoyan Onaibe Desmond, aka Destalker, recently shared the reason behind his decision to leave his job as a pallbearer.

During an interview with TVC, he recounted a frightening experience when he and his fellow workers accidentally broke a casket while dancing with it.

This incident shook him enough to quit his job.

“When I joined the undertaker band initially, I wasn’t carrying caskets. I was only dancing because I know how to dance very well. I won Best Makossa Dancer in my street before. But after six or seven months, I started carrying caskets. I was really enjoying it but there was an incident that happened. Let me tell you why I stopped because by now, I’m supposed to have my own undertaker band. We went to carry a female corpse from Asaba to Igbuzo. When we were about to enter the compound, the children of the deceased asked us to dance with the casket. As we were throwing it up, suddenly, it shattered. The coffin was fake” he said.
