From performing on the show of others, Ayo has gone on a host of his own show, named for him, AY Live. Although he has his hands in several piles, Ayo Makun is most famous as a comedian.
Born in 1971, Ayo Makun is currently 49 years. He’ll be 50 in August.
Rated high among Nigerian comedians, Ayo Makun also totes a high net worth in Nigeria’s comedy space. Of course, he wouldn’t be caught bragging about his net worth, but conservative estimates put his net worth at $2 million.
Ayo Makun is married to Mabel, a lady with whom he’s well pleased. The couple got married in 2008, which makes their union 13 years old this year.
Mabel has got such a splendid figure that speculations have been rife. She went under the knife to achieve her figure. After a long silence on the speculations, she had taken to Instagram to let the world know that she never did cosmetic surgery.
She made it clear, though, that she’s not against cosmetic surgery and that if she chose to go under the knife, she would do so with pride. Ayo Makun was in the post’s comment section to let her know he loves her the way she is and there would be no need for cosmetic surgery.
By the way, Mabel also attended Delta State University, where she obtained a degree in business administration. In addition, she’s an interior designer and stylist.
Ayo Makun is not an only child. He’s got two brothers (and other siblings), who are just as famous. Lanre Makun is one such brother. He’s a funnyman, too, but not nearly as famous in comedy as his elder brother. Lanre is also an event manager and stage director.
Yomi Makun, long famous as Yomi Casual, is another of Ayo Makun’s brothers. He’s as famous as Ayo himself – but not as a comedian. Yomi is a celebrated fashion figure in Nigeria and one who has designed clothes for several celebs. Yomi got married to Grace Onuoha of Fab Jewels in 2017.
A month ago – in the middle of June 2021 – Yomi was involved in an accident. He survived the accident, but his SUV was damaged.
Ayo Makun lives in a hose fit for a king. It’s unknown how many houses he has and where they are all located. But the image he’s shared of his current crib sure befits a body who has made it in life.
The mansion is located in the street named for the comedian and features, among others, a cinema room, a swimming pool, a studio room, and walk-in closets.
