Why I quit my job as an pallbearer – Comedian Destalker

Nigerian comedian Oghenekowhoyan Onaibe Desmond, better known  as Destalker, shares why he chose to leave his job as a pallbearer.

In an interview with TVC, Destalker stated that he enjoyed the job initially and dreamt of starting his own funeral band, but made the tough decision to quit following a troubling incident.

Speaking about the incident, he recalled that he and his colleagues were dancing with a coffin which unexpectedly fell apart when thrown in the air

He admitted feeling scared by the incident, prompting him to reevaluate his career path.

He said

“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.”

He also recalled another incident where a casket broke onto two and they realised it was fake

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 is fake.”

“It wasn’t funny. That was how I lost interest in the undertaker job.”
