This Is Where the 'When I'm Through With You, You Will See' Meme Comes From

The viral clip originates from a Nigerian gospel comedy skit.

We've done some digging on the origins of more viral clips-turned-memes from African films, and today's investigation hails from Nigeria in the late-2000s.

You've seen this clip paired perfectly with a Black Panther-inspired caption on Twitter—and it's another clip that has us dying of laughter every time it appears on our timelines.

Thanks to Chance The Rapper's recent question that has sparked conversation, we discovered the clip is from a series called Pride by Alfa Sule—a gospel comedy troupe from Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo State in Nigeria.


The dramatic and theatrical "soul saver" in the clip is comedian and actor, Ayo Ajewole. He screams and threatens, "When I'm through with you, you will see" to a passerby as he tries to evangelize and force the man to join his church consisting of himself and his wife—yes, two people.

Ajewole started the comedy/drama ministry with his brother, Femi in 2002. It was this skit from 2009, that you can watch in full below, that helped them rise to stardom in their community.

Although Alfa Sule has been silent on Facebook and Twitter for a few years now, it seems like they're still buzzing as the brothers continue to do interviews with Nigerian media outlets as recently as last year.

Kimberly Anthony’s Bold Take On Fashion

Dubbed one of the coolest fashionistas in Paris, the Togolese creative talks her brand G.Y.D. Studio, journey up the fashion echelons and creating clothes that encourage authenticity.

Dressed immaculately in a swathe of angles and textures, Kimberly Anthony welcomes me with an enormous smile while elegantly seated upright. She is as pristine as I expected, but the explosive laughter that shakes her entire body throughout our chat reveals a soulful woman with a spirit so generous, even she can't contain it.

The Paris-based tastemaker-cum-model, known as @Kimberlyskinny on Instagram, may have gone down the habitual path of having enough social media followers to warrant creating her own clothing brand, but hers has been a full circle and earnest journey. To bring her bold vision to life, the Togolese creative worked with local artisans back in Lomé. Her collection of oversized garments invoke long, hot summer days and make a mockery of formalities.

Born in Togo and briefly raised in Ghana, at age seven Kimberly moved to Paris' stark and unfamiliar streets — which now at 26, she inhabits with ease. Her brand G.Y.D. Studio has created a stir beyond her own expectations — she is suddenly in higher demand than ever. With her confidence deservedly overflowing, she raises her glass with a toast to my first question.
