The Second edition of the Savanna Pan-African Comic Of The Year Awards are happening on 8th September at The Lyric Theatre located at Gold Reef City, Johannesburg.
We are comfortable to say that these might be the biggest comedy awards in Africa and with the success of the first event that took place last year, the organizers have decided to increase the number of registration up from 29 to 54 comedians across Africa.
Uganda is being represented by two big comedians Salvado Idringi and Anne Kansiime. These two are nominated in the Comic of the year award alongside Basketmouth (Nigeria), Carl Joshua Ncube (Zimbabwe) and Charles Manase (Botswana).
These five will be flown in by Savanna to attend the awards ceremony in Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday 8 September 2018 at the Lyric Theatre.
Salvado and Anne are two of Uganda’s biggest international comedians who have a massive following outside Uganda. They have represented the Pearl of Africa on a number of occasions to the extent that Salvado one time admitted that he is soon getting citizenship in West Africa because if his endless gigs over there.
We wish them the best
