How Gbenga Adeboye made Tinubu laughs

In the video, the late Adeboye, who spoke in Yoruba language, narrated how a white man who was a friend of his accompanied him to a masquerade festival. At the festival, a masquerade was being shot at with local guns, and the white man wondered why he was not dying.
