Ugandan queen of comedy Anne Kansiime is set for a rib cracking thanksgiving show in Washington DC tonight. Having shut down her previous shows in an exquisite and flawless style in Canada a few months ago, the legendary Kansiime is more than ready to rewrite history.
If there is one celebrity whose career has skyrocketed this year, then her name comes to the minds of many. Delivering on all aspects, the girl from Mparo Kitanga is a major force to reckon with and she has proved herself more than once.
Kansiime is the biggest Ugandan export when it comes to comedy, with over 1 million fans on Facebook which is bigger than any brand or artist in Uganda. She commands huge crowds and one doesn’t have to look so far back in time, she recently shut down Zimbabwe with sold out shows.
Her hard work has also been rewarded by several awards like the African Entertainment award for best comedian of the year beating off competition from Africa’s heavyweights Basket Mouth and Trevor Noah.
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure. It has been quite a journey for the comedienne and she always gives thanks to the almighty for the favour he bestowed on her.
The comedienne will be travelling to South Africa then Kenya for her next shows before the year comes to an end.
