IT was a humour fiesta on Friday, October 25 at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, when Globacom staged its comedy show, Glo Laffta Fest, in the city. Held at Thisday Dome, the show brimmed with enthusiastic crowd as 16 of Nigeria’s finest and international comedians combined with the nation’s biggest musicians to thrill Abuja residents.
Anchored by popular comedian Basketmouth, the event, tagged Invasion LOL, featured artistes comprising four Americans, one South African, one Ugandan and 10 top Nigerian entertainers from Nigeria’s comedy and music circle.
Sensational singer, Omawumi, set the ball rolling with her usual energetic performance spiced with her dexterous dance steps, with her rendition of her hit track, Adebisikonga, driving the crowd into frenzy.
MI also delivered unbeatable performance to show why he is Africa’s Rapper Number One. Also on the bill were Wande and PSquare. In between the musical sessions and performances by the foreign comedians, the top Nigerian comedians on parade such as Akpororo, Gordons, I Go Save, Buchi, Funny Bone and Bovi gave a good account of themselves.
The international on the bill include Robbert Powell, Donnivan Jordan, Tony Roberts and Deray Davis. Donnivan said, based on the falsehood they had been fed in America, he arrived Nigeria expecting to ride a camel but was stunned when his guests provided him with a glittering Range Rover.
Explaining the basis for the show, the anchorman, Basketmouth, said that Globacom, “being the only network that cares about giving back to the people, put this show together to appreciate Nigerians that have stood behind the company in the last 10 years”.
