Top shots in the Nigerian entertainment scene, including 2Face Idibia, Wande Coal, Basketmouth, Bovi, Seyi Shay and many others have been announced as performers at the annual comedy concert, Naija FM Comedy Jam, courtesy of indigenous radio station, Naija 102.7 FM.
The 4th Edition of Naija FM Comedy Jam, which holds on November 21 (today) at Muson Centre in Lagos, will feature recognition and celebration of comedy acts and personalities as well as the most outstanding comedy shows for the period under review.
Naija FM OAPs, Ushbebe, Sabina and Lady J, will host the show.
The awards segment will include categories like Upcoming Comedian of the year, Online Sensation of the year, Sitcom of the year, Comedy Actor of the year, Comedy Event of the year, Comedian of the year and Hall of Fame.
From modest beginnings at the turn of the century, the Nigerian Comedy industry has grown enormously over the past two decades to become Africa’s largest comedy market and an important global comedy hub, with trailblazers like Basketmouth and Bovi taking Nigerian comedy and culture to a global audience.
Giving his thoughts on the event, the General Manager Megalectrics, Deji Awokoya, said: “The Naija FM comedy jam has become a signature platform through which we appreciate our radio listeners and this fourth edition promises to be the best yet.
“It is a celebration for our listeners, for the performers and for us as the Nigerian comedy scene continues to grow and break records beyond our most optimistic projections when starting out.”
The Radio station will also be giving one lucky winner a return ticket to Turkey.
It will be recalled that last year, a lucky ticket holder emerged a winner of a government-approved plot of land in Lagos.
Naija FM Comedy Jam is supported by Peak Milk, St Remy, Turkish Airlines, Birdie Technologies, Hip TV, Black House Media and Nigezie.
