Churchill Show’s only Somali comedienne, Nasra Yusuf has defied the odds of her culture to rub shoulders with some of the biggest comedians and influencers in the country but to date, her father has always been against her career path.
Despite showing the skill and talent while at a very young age, the Somali culture almost became a stumbling block for a young Nasra Yusuf who found her place in the comedy art and ran with it.
Telling her story on Jalango TV, the Somali beauty admitted that unlike her dad, her mom has always been very supportive of her art in comedy. As for her dad, even though she has gained massive recognition from the art, he never wants to hear anything to do with her daughter becoming a comedian and has even never watched her shows.
A topic she has never sat down with her dad to discuss because that will only light a fire she might never be able to put off. Many would ask why? Turns out that Nasra’s dad expected his daughter to behave like the accustomed Somali girl who would sit at home and wait to be given off to her parents’ choice of a husband but Nasra would not conform to that.
“My dad expects me to be the typical Somali girl, to sit at home, find a husband and get married off. That’s it!” narrated Nasra Yusuf.
Nasra’s hookup with boyfriend Rashid
In fact, recently, her dad found out about her rumored boyfriend, Rashid and immediately rang her to question her about walking around with a man he is not privy to. Do you know, Nasra hang up on her dad and never attempted to call him back to discuss the same.
“I got scared so I didn’t answer him instead told him I’ll buy credit then call back. Until today, I have not called him,” Nasra hilariously narrated.
