Telecoms operator and biggest sponsor of entertainment in the country, Globacom, has said that the residents of Ibadan will experience a bigger and richer comedy concert this Sunday than it did when the Glo Laffta Fest comedy tour first landed in the ancient city last June 11.
According to Globacom, the June concert was “…unbelievable fun.” But, Globacom in a press statement assured that residents “ …should expect an even more explosive show on Sunday”.
This weekend’s event promises to be even more hilarious, more entertaining, more colourful and even richer as Bovi and Basketmouth, two of Nigeria’s most creative stand-up comedians, are ready and well rehearsed to send fans holding their bellies in laughter.
Also performing this weekend are On-Air-Personality and stand-up comedian, Osama; one of Nigeria’s most popular comediennes, Helen Paul; social media sensation, Mr. Patrick and the most popular ‘Preacher’ and ‘Interpreter’ comic duo, Still Ringing.
Basketmouth urged Ibadan residents to get ready to laugh their anxieties and sorrows away.
Also, Samuel Ogunrina Ayodeji and Ojo Oladipupo Daniel, jointly known as Still Ringing, said the people of Ibadan should “Look forward to the best of comedy.”
“You know us now, just come and let us pass you power like power holding. We will minister to you and you will never remain the same,” Still Ringing said.
The event will be graced by Nollywood mega stars such as Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD), Odunlade Adekola, Victor Osuagwu and Mr. Latin. The show will be anchored by television screen goddesses, Ebube Nwagbo and Uche Jombo.
This Sunday’s event will be held at the Jogor Centre, Ibadan and according to Globacom, subscribers who wish to attend should use up to N2,000 credit on their Glo lines within one month and text LOL with the location name to the short code 240; for example, “LOL Ibadan” to 240. Subscribers who do not meet this criterion but who wish to attend the show are requested to go to the event venue with N2000 to purchase airtime for their own use. They will then be entitled to a ticket.
Other locations the comedy train will touch in the weeks ahead include FESTAC, Suleja, Kano, Anyigba, Lokoja, Port Harcourt, Onitsha, Makurdi and Ajah.
