If you do not know her, then you should probably close down your Instagram account!!! She is Gloria Oloruntobi (@maraji_ on instagram), a final year, International Relations student of Covenant University.
Her hilarious lip sync videos are just “the bomb”!!! If you know anyone having a bad day, *plix, edakun* just refer them to her IG account.
Q: Let’s meet you.
A: My name is Gloria Oloruntobi, I am from Edo state in Nigeria, I have three siblings, a sister and two brothers.
Q: On social media, you bear the name MARAJI….what does it mean?
A: It means “King” in Hindi.
Q: Your lip sync videos are like the rave of the moment right now….what made you decide to start?
A: I started them out of boredom because I am not an outgoing person, and my friend Ezime introduced it to me. I think I was just inspired by the outcome, and how much I personally liked the videos.
Q: When you started, did you think it was something that was going to get this big?
A: NOOOOO, I wanted to stop before the resumption of school and delete all the videos until Korede Bello and Reekado Banks re-posted and that was when I realised it could be bigger.
Q: Have you always been like this (I mean, the funny-faced person)?
A: YEEEESSS, I have always been a drama queen, I make funny faces 99.9 percent of my life and I have this habit of talking to myself and making fictional people up just to make my family members think I am mad.
Q: I am sure in your school, or in most schools, you are like a celebrity figure, so how do you handle the fame?
A: I just act normal, I pray to God that it doesnt get to my head, I tell myself everyday that I am not a celebrity and it helps me just act cool when someone comes to say hi and tell me they are a fan.
Q: You recently won an award for “Online Personality” in your school, how did it feel being recognized for this?
A: It felt good, but I am definitely a big dreamer, so the award is just evidence of my abilities, not really an achievement.
Q: You are a student of Covenant University, tell us about school…
A: I can’t wait to graduate, my school has its pros and cons, I honestly just want to leave.
Q: Have you ever been in an embarrassing situation because of your lip sync videos?
A: Not really, I just dont like stares.
Q: How do you combine school with your talent?
A: Jesus, it is so so hard…. replying people, making extra time for videos and my final year project, it is really hectic right now.
Q: What is your idea of perfect happiness?
A: When I see my mum happy, then I am perfectly happy.
Q: What are your greatest fears?
A: My greatest fear would be to lose my mum and to lose my spirituality.
Q: At the end of the year, what do you hope to have achieved?
A: A YouTube channel, and my BSc I think.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
A: Making a lot of youtube videos with over a million subscribers, and working as well.
Q: What is your greatest achievement so far?
A: I think my ability to make myself a public figure because I didn’t think I was earlier.
Q: What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
A: I really don’t know.
Q: What is your most treasured possession?
A: I think it is my make-up , I am a make-up freak!
Q: It was really nice having you on the blog!!!!
A: Thank you too for having
