Nigerian-born comedian Ola Dada, who is known for his uniquely daring yet light-hearted comedy, releases his debut album Dada Plan on 604 Records comedy arm, Comedy Here Often, May 10th, 2022. Dada’s use of life experiences as material, including being raised in Fort McMurray in a Nigerian home, living in Vancouver, and working as a financial advisor, offer a hilarious perspective on contrasting values, views on life, religion and relationships.
Ola’s start in comedy wasn’t intentional, his first performance was completely off the cuff when he got on stage at a comedy club to try to make his friends in the audience laugh. He has since made a name for himself in the Vancouver comedy scene, appearing at the Vancouver Just For Laughs festival in 2020. In 2019, he garnered success as a runner-up in the Canada-wide “SiriusXM Top Comic Competition” and appeared on CBC’s The New Wave of Stand Up. Most recently, Dada debuted live on Canada’s Got Talent where the judges were blown away by his loveable, authentic charm.
