Top 20 African Stand-Up Comedians, Only Daniel Omara Makes It To The List

Published

By Ian Ortega

We may blame it on the wrangles that were witnessed this year in the comedy industry for this dismal performance. The ranking for the top 20 African stand-up comedians features just one of the Ugandan comedians. And ever since the wrangles came up, the crowds have never been so interested in comedy compared to previous years.

Others think that Ugandan Stand-up comedians can’t compete favourably because they lack innovation and keep recycling their jokes. “We lack originality, comedians are copying status updates from Facebook that have been shared over a number of facebook pages,” noted a fan.

But to Daniel Omara who was ranked 19th best in Africa, other Africans could not disagree. A fan from Nigeria had this to say; “I find that guy original, he actually deserved to be in the top ten. He has a unique style and he will make you laugh regardless of one’s country of origin.”

Well, here is the list:

20. Gbenga Adeyinka (Nigeria)

19. Daniel Omara (Uganda)

18. A Dot (Nigerian)

17. John Vlismas (South African)

16. Foxy P (Nigeria)

15. Nik Rabinowitz (South Africa)

14. Kasambwe Mpulamasaka (Zambia)

13. David Kibuuka (South Africa)

12. Ali Baba (Nigeria)

11. Loyiso Gola (South Africa)

10. Eddie Kadi (Congo)

9. Eric Omondi (Kenya)

8. I Go Dye (Nigeria)

7. Daliso Chaponda (Malawi)

6. David Kau (South Africa)

5. Klint The Drunk (Nigeria)

4. Riaad Moosa (South Africa)

3. Michael Blackson (Ghana)

2. Basketmouth (Nigerian)

1. Trevor Noah (South Africa)

Jose Chameleone cleans up Twitter, follows only two Ugandan artistes, your guess is as good as ours.

By Reporter

After being unfollowed by the President or rather his administrator, Jose Chameleone has not taken Twitter lightly. The singer has done some cleaning up and has been left with only 108 accounts to follow and only two of those are Ugandan artistes.

It is not rocket science that Chameleone only decides to follow his two brothers Pallaso and Radio&Weasel, had it been any others maybe we would be wondering the criteria he used.

Chameleone is one of the most followed Ugandan artistes on Twitter and not following you may not go so well with you as an artiste.

Rwandans ask Salvado To Apologize for Genocide Joke

Published

on

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.

By Reporter

The Abryanz style and Fashion awards are back for the 7th time and for the first time they have partnered with Talent Africa group.

Talent Africa group under it’s events and promotion wing will come active and handy in the ASFA 2019. We were keen on the partnership and quizzed Talent Africa boss Ali Alibhai on why he chose to partner with Abryanz this year.“We are a 360 entertainment company and have over years mastered the art of events marketing and this is another event we look forward to evelevating further. Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards have a very good reputation and we are sure our contribution will be felt” he said.

Talent Africa Group has in the past yet somilarly big events like Nyege Nyege and hosted many foreign artistes and have at all instances sold out. With such momentum we can be sure ASFA 2019 will be another event to look upto, probably the best ever edition so far.
