Laughter, they say, is good medicine, and Nigerians know how to look for places they can laugh away their pains. Promoters and entertainers are not thinking differently, as they will be taking this yearning to Benin City at Hexagon and Port Harcourt at Aztech Archum on Boxing Day and on New Year day respectively.
The show follows the official takeover of the Opa William’s Nite of A Thousand Laughs by showbiz impresario, Kehinde Adegbite, popularly known as Mallam Yankee. He promised to take the show beyond its current limit by announcing its Benin and Port Harcourt’s Special Editions.
The two events will assemble heavyweights in the entertainment industry to give residents of the two cities the most desired entertainment for the season. Comedians expected include Okey Bakassi, I Go Die, I Go Save, Edo pikin, MC Casino, Maleke, Osama, Arinze Baba, Youngest Landlord, Wazobia Revolution, Most Wanted and Yellowmouth.
Mallam Yankee announced further that Okey Bakassi, Helen Paul, I Go Die, Gordons, I Go Save, Accapella, Romeo and Arinze Baba would perform at the Port Harcourt event as well.
According to the entertainment boss, who also chairs The Bank club, “Residents would equally be thrilled by a scintillating vibe from popular musician, YCee, aka, Omo-Alhaji.”
It would be recalled that Mallam Yankee recently took over the popular comedy show after its founder, Opa Williams, ran it for 20 years.
