Muhammadu Bashir Abdulai who is popularly known as Father DMW is a Nigerian artist and comedian who makes comedy skits for Instagram.
Aboki Toh Jar, as he mostly calls himself, was born and raised in Gwoza Local Government area of Borno State and he doesn’t know his real date of birth but on his international passport, his date of birth is February 2, 1999. His education was cut short during the Boko Haram Insurgence as he had to disguise himself as a woman in order to avoid getting selected for war and flee to Lagos for safety and in search of a greener pasture.
After relocating to Lagos State, Nigeria, Father DMW resorted to being a commercial motorcyclist in order to make ends meet and at the time, he had no bike of his own and also had a Hausa friend who stays at Davido’s residence. He usually visits his friend at Davido’s house and from there he became acquainted with Davido and was made Davido’s gateman and started running errands for the singer and his friends. With his funny and likable personality, he quickly became everyone’s favorite in Davido’s crib.
Father DMW walked up to Davido one day and sought financial assistance in order to purchase a bike of his own and Davido obliged and gave him the money he needed and he purchased his own bike for his business (image of the bike is in the pictures section). His first Instagram page was opened by Nigerian singer, Zlatan Ibile and after garnering over 5000 followers, the account was hacked. Zlatan Ibile opened yet another Instagram page for him on the 23rd of November, 2018 and promoted his new page with giveaways.
Later on, Father DMW asked Davido to connect him with Broda Shaggi, one of the top Instagram comedians in Nigeria, so together they can make funny skits for Instagram. Once again, Davido came through for him and urged Broda Shaggi to put him through and involve him in his comedy skits and they started working together in December 2018 and continued till he was able to carry on on his own.
Father DMW has since gained some level of mastery in skit making and has worked with some of the best Nigerian Instagram comedians like Lord Lamba, Gen_Tuu, Sirbalo Comedy, Sydney Talker, Van Josh, Nasty Blaq, Mr Funny, Funny Toheeb, and the list goes on.
Apart from comedy, Father DMW is also a singer as he was featured alongside Mohbad by Dakulest on the song ‘Gbera Tan’. Father DMW also makes Hausa covers of popular Nigerian songs as he has made the Hausa cover of Davido ft. Popcaan – Risky, Davido – Wonder Woman, Naira Marley – Soapy, Teni – Case, DMW feat. Davido & Zlatan – Bum Bum, Demmie Vee – Tiff, IVD feat. Zlatan – Bolanle, Rahman Jago ft. Zlatan, Junior Boy & Chinko Ekun – Ijo Ope.
Father DMW’s major breakthrough in comedy and fame came during the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic when he knew Eva Apio on Instagram and their series of hilarious live videos on Instagram went viral. During that period of uncertainty and when boredom was at his peak, he was able to entertain netizens with little effort during his Instagram live videos with Eva Apio. After developing a reputation as the naive guy in a cool and funny way, he was able to attract the attention of celebrities to himself as he went on live video sessions with other celebrities like Micheal Blackson, Alex Iwobi, Micheal Dapaah, Kiddominant, and got a follow-back on Instagram from these celebrities and was eventually verified on Instagram.
