Comedian and Instagram personality, Chibuike Alfred, better known as Josh2funny, is a happy man at the moment. This is as a result of the recognition recorded by his #Don’tLeaveMe. The challenge has incredibly gained foreign recognition.

Even Hollywood stars took part in the #Don’tLeaveMe challenge inspired by a skit where he punned around with the word ‘leaf’ with the help of his hype man Bello Kreb.

The comedian told Sunday Scoop that seeing his story on foreign news media such as CNN and The Guardian was not only overwhelming but mind-blowing.

He said,

“The home and international recognition #Don’tleavemechallenge has gained so far makes me feel very good. This is the reason we work so hard― so that people all over the world can see what we do. It’s just pure fulfilment when these things happen. The #Don’tleavemechallenge is turning into a ‘culture’ right now. For now, we’re trying to make use of the exposure to sell #Don’tleaveme merch, Ankara, shirts, caps etc which is making good sales. Some brands have also been in talks with us and we’re hoping that good thing comes out of it.

‘’I have created many trends in the past but I don’t understand why this favoured me. I just do my skits with all my heart and I think God crowns my effort. There’re a lot of hardworking/talented comedians but there is just this thing that makes my skits go viral that I don’t understand. However, I think it’s my mother’s prayer that’s at work. I think some of the factors that has helped me is my background, the kind of music I was exposed to and some other things.

‘’It’s mind-blowing and overwhelming to see my story on foreign new sites because this is what I have been praying for. It’s an encouragement that I have to keep putting in my best because anything can happen unexpectedly.’’

The 29 year also spoke about ladies who had turned him down when he was struggling now regret their decisions.

He said;

“Some ladies left me because they didn’t believe in me. They just didn’t see light on the path I was threading. But I went all out for my career. Some of the ladies are regretting now, even though I’m not still big. I have been able to get here through the prayers of my family and people such as Koffi the Guru and comedian, Woli Arole, who helped me and touched my life in different ways.’’

Tyler, The Creator Revealed A Failed Romance With His Friend’s Girlfriend On “Wilshire”

Tyler, The Creator Revealed A Failed Romance With His Friend’s Girlfriend On “Wilshire”


The eight-minute song “WILSHIRE” was recorded in a single take.

WILSHIRE” is a song off Tyler, The Creator’s CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST album and which might be the album’s most important song.

The four-verse song that is over eight minutes long is where Tyler revealed a failed romance with a woman who was dating his friend (i.e. his friend’s girlfriend).

Tyler then made a claim on Twitter that he recorded the song in one take on his second attempt.

In another tweet responding to a fan, Tyler claimed this album was his most personal and based on his real-life.

 

“WILSHIRE” is perhaps the most personal song on the album. Produced by Tyler himself, “WILSHIRE” starts with Tyler meeting a woman that he has instant chemistry with.

They spend the night at his hotel, but things get complicated when she reveals something about herself:

I wasn’t drownin’ or yawnin’, that’s when I told you my feelings
You told me you felt the same, but you got homie you dealin’ with
Damn, I didn’t know, that’s a bit unexpected
But I get it, it’s whatever, least I can do is respect it
We still gon’ kick it and check-in like nothin’ could ever stop it
The problem is he my friend, but if I’m honest, I’m really hopin’ you drop him 

The verse ends with Tyler unwilling to betray his friend and telling the woman they can remain friends. In the second verse, Tyler hangs out with the woman along with her boyfriend, who suspects something is going on:

Anyway, convince him to bring you to me so we could kick it
Right in front of his lenses, nothing here is malicious
You sat by me in that movie, we went outside for them doobies
We walkin’ off when we talk, man, that n-gga not f-ckin’ stupid
He see it, he know it’s somethin’ we frontin’ like, “Ha-ha-ha” 

On the third verse, Tyler recalls how his love interest’s boyfriend kept them apart, making him depressed and jealous. In the next verse, Tyler convinces the woman to spend a week with him as he shows her the good life and pays for a shopping spree while her boyfriend wonders where she is.

He tells the woman he needs her in his life. Tyler’s sexuality has been a topic of conversation on his past two albums, but here he casually mentions his bi-sexuality:

The only thing I’m missin’ in life, I know you could be it
And everyone around me that care about me can see it
I could fuck a trillion bitches every country I done been in
Men or women, it don’t matter, if I seen ‘em, then I had ’em
But with you, it’s a feeling ’cause we twinnin’ and we matchin’ 

Tyler’s love interest responds by admitting that while she often thinks about him, she doesn’t want to hurt her boyfriend. They sit in Tyler’s car, and she breaks down as they break up:

We sat in the car and cried for a hour
My shirt look like a showerhead got it, we called it off
I’ll skip the details but that night I seen hell
You was in a room I was payin’ for, I took three Ls 

The song ends with Tyler accepting that the romance has failed, but he still wants to be friends:

Sh-t, I can’t even look at you and think about bad words
That’s why I called and said we couldn’t end this on bad terms
We straight like a bad perm, we’ll always be good friends  

In the talking outro, Tyler admits he was “hurt” by the entire situation before saying:

I’m mad private with this side of my life ‘cause people are weirdos, and
I just try to keep anyone I care about in the shadows
Safe from the commentary and spotlight and thoughts
‘Cause it’s just a story for the people outside of it
But I guess you’re just another chapter in the book
