During last evening’s Zzina awards that went on at theatre Labonita, one of the tightest categories was the best comedian that had Anne Kansiime, Amooti Omubalanguzi, Alex Muhangi and Afande Kerekere and the moment Salvado who had the honors of presenting it mentioned that Amooti was the winner, everyone couldn’t agree more.
Infact Salvado said he learned a lot from Amooti and gives him all the respect but Anne Kansiime took her appreciation on her Facebook wall and wrote. “I’m very happy for Amooti Omubalanguzi for winning the comedian of the year 2014 award… But if I was part of the organizing team, I wouldn’t even consider Amooti part of the nominees, the dude deserves a life achievement award.” She added that “this guy is amazing, he has been there and seen it all, he paved way for us so it’s sad that he is put in a category for people to vote alongside us. That’s so wrong.”
Amooti is the funniest commedian who does his trade in Amarula family, which is the longest serving comedy outfit in Uganda. Besides being a comedian, he’s a director and founding member of that same group.
