However, his parents have been very supportive of his career. His breakthrough in the comedy industry came when in November 10, 2006, he won the AY Open Mic Comedy Competition. That gave him the in-road he desired to get into comedy. Since then, the journey has been swift.

I was invited for the Nigerian Comedy Awards. After that, the next big stage I performed on was the AY live. That was the first time I saw a very large crowd. Before then, I was back stage trying to calm my nerves. Immediately I was called on the stage, I forgot all the jokes I had rehearsed. However, when I gave my first joke and people laughed, the jokes started coming back to me and I was able to overcome my fright.? In 2011, he was regarded as the official comedian for his Excellency, Governor Godswill Obot Akpaibio, the executive governor of Akwa Ibom State.

He updates himself by going out of his regular routine of jokes. Elenu however complained that people tend to take them for granted for example he has this to say. ?The day I asked my fiancée out, she thought I was joking. The first thing that came out of her mouth was these comedians are very funny. For somebody that I expected to see reasons with what I was saying to take it as a joke really put me off but I get it all the time. A friend's car was stolen and I broadcast it on BB in case anybody sees it. The first comment I got was from somebody asking me if it was a joke. We accept it and it is something we have come to live with. It is not something we should be angry about.? Elenu has as his role model AY and Basketmouth.
