Ali Baba, christened Atunyota Alleluya Akporobomerere was born in Warri, Delta State, to the Royal family of Agbarha Otor, Ughelli North Local Government Area.
He started his education at Ojo Primary School and Command Secondary School. He furthered his education at Ibru College and then went on to the now rested Bendel State University now known as the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma where he read Religious Studies & Philosophy.
After acquiring a degree from the then Bendel State University, Ekpoma in 1990, he relocated to Lagos, discovered his comic talent and funny bone in his 3rd year in university. He had planned to return to Ekpoma to read Law but that was not to be, since he discovered he could make more money from making people laugh than defending them!
Ali Baba carved a niche for himself as a comedian for both corporate and non-corporate events.
