Teju made this disclosure in an interview with New Telegraph where he spoke about his career.

“We were looking for a name when I started comedy officially which was in the year 2000. My name had just been Teju but the name was not a universally pronounceable name and people were not really getting it right so we were looking for something everybody could pronounce.

“Tee-A’s wife, Kenny, who was his girlfriend then came up with the name ‘Babyface’ when Tee-A, Ali baba and myself were brainstorming and as ridiculous as it sounded, we decided to go with it and it worked perfectly,” he recalled.
