The Nigerian based comedian recently had a street named after him courtesy of Haven homes in Richmond Gate Estate, Lekki, where he resides.

And he certainly could not hide the excitement as he showed off the street street sign.

In an Instagram post, AY wrote ‘I have seen streets in our cities [being] named after many famous people from politics, to sports, and to other people who served or contributed to the social cultural development of our country in one way or the other.

‘But I never knew that a day would come where I would be ‘famous’ enough to have a street named in my honour. As I say a big thank you to the management of Haven Homes, I just want to use this same opportunity to charge lovers and followers of the AY brand up a little.

‘My prayer is for every one of you to be remembered and celebrated for something. Get off that bed this morning and infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future.’

AY joins 2face Idibia as celebs with a street named after them, as the music icon also got the same honour by Haven Homes in June 2016.
