MORAN CEE THE MULTITALENTED PERSONALITY - PART ONE




Moran Cee is one of my ardent readers on Facebook. We became friends though all our communication is via telephone as we are yet to meet.

He is a young man full of ambitions and when we talked, I knew he was the right person to interview for this blog. He is brilliant and hardworking; a powerful combination designed to take anyone to the top.


Here is his interview.


MAY WE MEET YOU?
My name is Onyemaechi Moran Chikere but popularly known as MORAN CEE. I'm the Chief Judge and Justice of Comedy Court; a court where Every Case is a Joke and Every Joke is a Case. I REST MY CASE!

EDUCATIONAL HISTORY
My Secondary Education was partly at Government Army Day Secondary School Minna Niger State.

After excelling in my Junior Secondary School Examination (JSSCE) I proceeded to the renowned Government Secondary School (GSS) Minna headed by Rev.Fr J.D O'Connel.

After passing Senior Secondary School Education (SSCE) in Flying colours I relocated to Lagos an enrolled in Nigerian College of Administration (The official Professional Training School of Chartered Institute of Administration Chartered by Act 103 of 1992) I studied Professional Diploma in Business Studies and Graduated as the Overall Best Student.


I proceeded to the Professional Practice Stage to Study CORPORATE ADMINISTRATION & FINANCE and also graduated as the Best Student at the final and Overall Level and became chartered in 2008.

I proceeded to IMO State University where I got my BSc in Marketing and graduated with Second Class Upper division. I later enrolled in UNILAG for my MBA and got other Professional Certifications in the field of e- Marketing, Purchasing & Supply Chain including Business Law. I believe in Skills, Capabilities and Competence more than paper qualifications.



WORK EXPERIENCE
I started off as a Private Tuition Provider to students preparing for Professional Certificate Examinations as a student while also doing some M.C. Jobs.

After Graduation in 2008 i accepted a job as an advert Executive with a celebrity Event Magazine; Gallery International Magazine. I cross functioned in the Editorial department; writing Event Stories, Conducted Celebrity Interviews and wrote features Stories. I also contributed to the Distributions and Sales Department before i was redeployed and promoted to the post of Acting Distribution/Sales Manager and later Deputy Manager Sales/Distribution covering Nigeria and other West African Countries where I was given the Award of the Most Outstanding Staff for the Year.

I served and contributed immensely before resigning in 2011 to do private Consultancy in Magazine Distribution/Sales for INTIMATE, BRAVO and AVANT-GARDE.


Within that period, I was already a part time Lecturer for my Alma Mater; Nigerian College of Administration/Chartered Institute of Administration in Management Courses. My Comedy/M.C. services were still running in between because they are same talking/Communication business. I also stood in and followed up clients for my elder brother; a seasoned Insurance Practitioner and used the opportunity to gain experience in the Insurance Sector too.


Having understood my capabilities and business angles to my passion, I set up a small consultancy outfit with the name Moranz Think Services focusing on Education, Entertainment, Media/Corporate Communications which executed several projects before it became incorporated and changed to Mo-Think Int'l Ltd. 


IN A NUTSHELL, LET US INTO ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU DO.

Apart from being a Comedian I am also engaged in other things. In fact different people endorse me and tell my story from the aspect they know more about me.

I am into Educational and General Entertainment Consultancy with an incorporated company; Mo-Think International Limited which COMEDY COURT is an official brand. As an Educational Consultant I have been a Consulting Lecturer for a Post Graduate Professional Training School for over Seven Years.

I serve as Facilitator and Resource paper developer for Employee trainings and Seminars, Guide students in their research project works and also draft pilot examination questions in Management courses for schools, help in examination supervisions.

In my Entertainment Consultancy, aside providing Comedy & Master of ceremony (M.C.) services, I give advisory services to Artistes and link them with promoters, Producers, video Directors and Get collaboration opportunities with bigger Artistes for them. All these I have been doing over the years with results.



HOW HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO COMBINE ALL THESE SUCCESSFULLY?
It is all by the grace of God and the abilities he gave me to be versatile. It is because I have PASSION in the things I do that is the reason I streamlined my capabilities into EDUCATION & ENTERTAINMENT CONSULTANCY for easy coordination turning my PASSIONS to my PROFESSIONS.




HOW DID THE IDEA OF COMEDY COURT COME ABOUT?

Over the years, i had passion for reaching out to people through Teaching, Writing and M.C./Comedy but was doing it at the background with a structural direction.

After meeting and chatting with Godwin Komone (Gordon) at an Interview in 2010, I briefed him of my plan to release an Audio Comedy Work; ELDER's COMEDY COURT asked for his support he agreed and told me he was also working on a Similar Project. When it was time to hit the studios I could no longer reach him, I proceeded to record.

Within the period, his own Project work; COMEDY KLINIK was released. Due to some shortcomings my own audio Album was released in 2012 as COMEDY COURT Session One with MORAN CEE.

In 2013 the brand; COMEDY COURT(Moran Cee) was officially launched with the second Audio Comedy Album and Merit Awards to Stakeholders in the Comedy/Entertainment Sector.

The brand was inspired by my quest to be different in a new dimension. This is the reason for the regalia, Slogan, Logo and my trademark signature #IRMC/I REST MY CASE. I didn’t want to be season as "one of those comedians" but a Comedian with style and swag. Hahaha



MY PAST PROJECTS AS A COMEDIAN
I have recorded and released two Audio Comedy Albums on sale; COMEDY COURT with MORAN CEE Sessions 1&2 -Released two Comedy Audio Singles Called SERMON IN THE COURT with BOOK OF CONSOLATION and BOOK OF LIES currently used as Caller tunes on Glo, Airtel and Etisalat networks.

Ebola sensitization/Awareness skits (EBOLA GARAGE and PASTOR KUNENE)

Numerous Short Skits - Comedy Court Proceedings for TV Series.

I organized and executed my self-financed award: COMEDY COURT LIVE &AWARDS 2013.

I have performed at and anchored several weddings, Awards, Dinners and Conferences. Few to mention are: Intercontinental Magazine Awards, EE Anniversary & Awards, BRAVO Awards, All Administrators National Conference 2013 at ICC & Merit Award House Abuja, Administrators Dinners and Inductions, University of Lagos (UNILAG) NFCS Awards etc
