The Friday of 9th August, was a night to remember as Kampala revelers were treated to an avalanche of jokes and humor as some of the best comedians in Africa shared a single stage. The show dubbed “Africa Laughs” was held at imperial Royale hotel.

The composition of Basket mouth, Africa’s leading comedian featuring Eric Omondi from Kenya, Carl Joshua Ncube from Zimbabwe, Daliso from Malawi and Uganda’s best comedians Ann Kansiime, Patrick Idringi Salvador, Mendo M7 left Ugandans with cracked ribs and stress free because of the hilarious jokes these guys were throwing at them. Alongside was the host of the show Mc Mich Egwang.

The auditorium was packed to full capacity doubling the previous event which had Klint de Drunk, the continental comedian from Nigeria featuring Pablo. Our own also did their best, however, regulars to their shows didn’t find them that much pleasing because it was generally recycling of the day to day jokes. This was mostly with Alex Muhangi. You had to be his girlfriend or relative to laugh at his sermon-like jokes.

This was followed by our comical demeanor of a rude villagish mukiiga, Anna Kansiime who put the crowd in the moods of real comedy and fun. Then, the Zimbabwean Carl Joshua caught up from this and along the way he confessed how Uganda Cranes is the best team in the whole world. And yes no doubt “we believe”. Mendo also tried with topical jokes.

Eric Omondi, a Kenyan native just served us with a buffet of jokes (Think of him as a corporate version of Afande Kerekere) as chics were mourning because they could not take it in any more. Perhaps the guy was the personality of the night.

After, Idringi Salvador also took us through the nursery rhymes and actually in the process invited his fiancée on to also act a part.

The serene stage was well lit for the Nigerian and continental comedian, Basket mouth who took us through the differences between whites and blacks, served as one of the cocktails, the guy had prepared for the night. The guy’s jokes came off as naturally as Omondi’s.

Not quite beneath the expectations, the simultaneous jokes were a little nasty and crude  but for a show that ended at midnight, some bedroom jokes might just have been a good weekend dose.

What is the quickest way to ruin a good mood? Bring an ex into the picture. That was a lesson singer Chris Evans had to learn the hard way after he was almost throw off the stage while performing at Rema’s concert on Friday evening at Hotel Africana.

Evans had been invited on stage by Rema to perform their collabo, “Linda”. He however went off script, and changed lyrics of the song mentioning Kenzo, something that did not sit well with the “Siri Muyembe” hitmaker.

Rema was clearly not pleased with Chris Evans’ actions, and what he thought would please the audience quickly backfired.

She halted the performance and almost slapped Evans as he dragged him all the way towards the stairs leading off stage. All the while the crowd watched on with bated breath as he tried to apologise.

Although she let him continue singing, the chemistry between the two singers was all lost after that. Attempts to try to perform together were met with hostility and Rema was visibly livid through out the performance of the song. In fact, Rema did not sing for the remaining part of the song. She let Evans carry on alone, and later exited the stage to take a breather and make a change in a wardrobe for the second part of her show.

Evans performed just one more song after the incident and left the stage with embarrassment written allover his face.

It was no ordinary night for lovers in the house who attended the vibrantly lit Valentines Special show with Janzi Band featuring Kenneth Mugabi and Sandra Suubi at Route 256.

The love-themed nest had fans of live band music revelling to the harmonious tunes that only Janzi delivers effortlessly. They sang their hearts out with covers and renditions of popular love songs to warm up the lovers and friends who were snuggling in each other’s company. Many did not look like they wanted the night to end.

Once guitar maestro, Kenneth Mugabi and songbird Sandra Suubi joined the Janzi on stage, the performance went up a notch higher with songs like Nkwegomba, Naki, Heaven and Faya. It was truly magical as the trio fed off the vibes they were receiving from the audience, who cheered them on and begged for more of the smooth music.

The mix of jazz, reggae classic and soul music uniquely blended got many onto their feet grooving blissfully through the night.

They surely did not disappoint their fans and lovers at the love-themed night leaving them satisfied when the show finally came to a close at the stroke of midnight.
