Micheal Amanesi, the popular Nigerian comedian and content creator, who is widely known as Mc Lively, has expressed his concerns over the potential dangers of regulating social media in Nigeria.

MC Lively argued that such regulations could stifle creative freedom and expression among artists and content creators.

He told Sunday Scoop, “The problem with things like regulation in Nigeria is the people in charge of the regulation. It could easily turn to a witch-hunt against content creators or a way for government to silence citizens. That is what makes regulation of social media dangerous. It is important for people to have freedom with creativity, as that is the only way be which creatives can rise to the pinnacle of expression.”

Asked how he handles negative social media comments, the lawyer cum content creator said, “People will always talk; it is the nature of humans. However, I am fortunate, because I got used to negative comments early in life. I attended the Obafemi Awolowo University, where banter is the order of the day. So, I try to take it in my stride and move on, as hard or hurtful as it may be. But, when it comes to constructive criticism, I take those and work on myself.”

Speaking on the inspiration behind his new project— The Reunion—, he said “The idea was brought up by one of my writers, who wrote a synopsis about secondary school reunions, and the things that happen there. When I saw it, I loved it and went to work. The necessary edits were made, and decided that we wanted it to be a university reunion, so it could be more relatable to people. We then went on to flesh out scripting, casting, and production crew.”
