Taaooma Biography



Apaokagi Maryam Adedoyin who is well known as Taaooma is a Nigerian comedian/content creator. The 21-year-old Comedienne hails from Kwara State and was born into a Muslim family of 5 of which she is the last child. She is currently the number one on the list of the top ten Nigerian Instagram comedians and recently hit the one million followers landmark on Instagram.


Taaooma started making comedy skits in 2015, the same year she gained admission into Kwara State University, Malate (KWASU). Back then in school, she normally returns home during the weekends and shoot as many videos as possible at home and later edit them when she returns back to school. In an interview with Ebuka on Channels Television, Taaooma stated that she never had any intention/plan of making skits or going into comedy as a profession. She saw the handiwork of her current boyfriend Greene Abdul Azeez who is well known as ‘Abula‘, a popular Nigerian video director, and she asked him to teach her how to make birthday wish video with several pictures and he promised to teach her way more than that. In order to practice what she learns from him, Abula suggested that she starts making skits in order to perfect her video shooting skill. Taaooma was clueless at the time on what type of skits to make and Abula suggested that she makes skits that depict an African mother & daughter relationship and that was how it all began. With the help of Abula she started making skits until Abula traveled back to Lagos State and she had to do it on her own. At some point it was really discouraging and she felt like quitting but Abula continued to encourage her via phone calls. Then she admired & looked up to Maraji & Twyse Ereme for inspiration & will to continue. In 2016, she tried going into standup comedy in her university and it was a total failure so she resorted to sticking with making comedy skit. In January 2018, she got her first paycheck for promoting a song in her skit. Taaooma got her first major breakthrough when she released the video of the mother & daughter trip to school in a car skit and that was when things starting growing really fast. Due to the workload she no longer shoots her video by herself as her videos are currently being shot by The Grenade Company, a company owned by her current boyfriend, Abula, while she edits. How She Maker Her skits Whenever she gets inspiration, she writes it down in a book, and when it’s time to shoot, she goes through her book and shoots whichever one she is feeling at the moment. Other Plans She currently plans on starting to make movies of her own from 2021 and she recently launched a food delivery company ‘Chop Tao‘ where small chops/snacks get delivered on order. Relationship She is still in a relationship with Greene Abdul Azeez who is well known as ‘Abula’, a popular Nigerian video director.
