Oga Funny is also in the league of skit makers who do not denigrate or objectify women in their act; one would rarely see a half-naked lady on any of Sabinus' skits, yet one be served premium laughter.
This particular trait endears him to the old, young, and persons with high moral values.
3. Facial Expression
Mr Funny is probably the most facially expressive comic in Nigeria. His facial expressions always give him an edge.

4. Hard work and consistency
Sabinus has stayed consistent since he got his big break in 2022. It is on record that Sabinus produced over 100 short comic skit videos, which is deemed an astonishing feat.
According to Dateleum, Sabinus is the second most-watched skit maker on Instagram with over 169.6m views, second only to Broda Shaggi.
He topped the chart in Q1, Q2 and Q3, only to witness a dip in Q4. However, when it comes to views across YouTube, Facebook Twitter and Instagram, he is still number one in Nigeria.
5. Controversy free
Despite being a young man and susceptible to mistakes and the allure of wealth, he has somehow been able to stay controversy-free.
Since he got his big break, there are very few times Sabinus was called out. One was during the Oko show controversy, where he was accused of collecting money and not showing up.
