Anne Kansiime who has undoubtedly made her mark on the entertainment industry, especially in the comedy section with her rib cracking jokes, has indeed put Uganda on the map.
Sometime back we caught up with the amazing comedienne and asked her about she thought of the competition from the Nigerian market and this is what she had to say,
‘Nigerians do publicity for their own, whether it being music or comedy. They support their local stars and hype them, whereas Ugandans don’t do the same, but instead look for scandals to discuss.’
‘They also have a bigger audience because of a bigger but supportive population that is willing to market and promote them. The reason they seem to grow faster in every sector.’
She further added that, ‘the pressure is to stay relevant in the industry that’s why I always try as much as possible to compete with myself and ignore the rest. I always strive to be better than I was before.’
Currently, Kansiime is gearing up for an award show in South Africa at the end of the month where she will be the host. To hype her fans, she said
‘I can’t wait to be with my ninjas come 30th May at Johannesburg city hall for the premier of the Starqt Awards.’
