Our woman of the day today is the hilarious Taaooma!
Maryam Apaokagi, popularly known as Taaooma is a talented young comedian and cinematographer. In less than two years, she has become one of the most talked-about Instagram personalities in the country.
Maryam is famously known for her hysterical skits; she started making skits when she developed a sudden interest in cinematography and decided to learn how to edit; she made skits because she needed video clips in order to be able to learn and practice editing, and now look how far she’s come. She’s been making her famous for five years and has faced challenges such as cyberbullying and having to balance school and shooting. Fortunately, she’s been able to push past the challenges and the haters to be the young woman she is today.
Maryam’s skits are inspired by her mum and environment, although she has mentioned before that her mum doesn’t really slap her, she exaggerates the slaps scenes for the sake of humor, just to make the skit funnier. She doesn’t plan her skits most of the time, as the inspiration comes, she shoots and it takes her 2-3 days to produce a full skit, considering the high quality of the videos, that is mind-blowing.
Maryam is a relentless, consistent and creative comedian who is constantly putting in the work in giving us hilarious content, and we’re celebrating her this women’s month. She plans to start making movies with her own company, The Grenade Company which is an entertainment company. We wish her goodluck, and we definitely know she’s going to kill it.
