Emmanuella's biography and career
The long and productive journey for Emmanuella started when she was only five years old. Her family decided to spend their holiday at their house in Port Harcourt and bring her along. Emmanuella developed a strong bond with Mark Angel, who loved being around kids and watching them.
He realized that out of all the children, Emmanuella is the one who makes him laugh the most, even though she is the youngest of them, and understood that she has a real comedy talent.
Mark kept an eye on Emmanuella’s potential and really enjoyed listening to her jokes. As Mark Angel remembered, there was a famous American program where the kids said funny things, and he began realizing that Emmanuella is no worse than the characters of this TV show.
She was spontaneous and could say really funny things without even trying. Mark asked Emmanuella a lot of questions, and she gave really witty answers.
Once, Mark Angel needed some kids for his comedy shoot, and he called a few children he knew for the audition. In the end, he chose three children, and he gave them the lines that they had to memorize. The kids could not remember the lines, and generally were struggling. Mark got frustrated, and in the end, he called Emmanuella to try instead of them.
When Emmanuella heard this proposition, she gave Mark an apple. As the comedian recalled, this little girl was just playing her role, while the other kids had trouble with it. She stole the spotlight from them, and in the end, Mark began training her along with one other child. He took them on the eighteen-hour-long video shoot and was surprised at how she endured through all these hours.
Mark decided to test the strength of the kids by not giving them food for all this time, as he wanted to find out who of the kids will start complaining, but Emmanuella did not complain and was really excited about the shoot. This is how Mark understood that she was the one he needed, and after the shoot, he had a long discussion with her parents about the future of their daughter. They were hard to convince at first, but in the end, Mark got their approval. He is sure that it was God who helped him to see the huge talent in this little girl.
Mark says that he always gives Emmanuella a fair share of freedom, and does not let her forget that she is a child, even though she is a celebrity now. He wants Emmanuella to have a regular childhood without her knowing how huge her impact is. So, his approach is just letting Emmanuella have fun in front of the camera.
