Sifiso Nene a no-show
MANZINI – South African comedian Sifiso Nene was a no show at the 100% Swazi comedy night held at the George Hotel on Saturday.
This is despite the fact that the talented star arrived in the country on Saturday afternoon and went straight to the Lugogo Sun Hotel where he was booked in.
According to the organsiers he felt he couldn’t perform for such a small audience.
However, local comedians did their part on stage and later had to do a comedy battle as a means of killing time pending Nene’s arrival.
Comedians were even told to prolong their acts while organisers tried in vain to convince Nene to come to the venue.
Also of note was the fact that even though the show started an hour later, Nene had still not left his hotel room.
Siqalo Events Managem-ent’s Vusi Kunene left the venue to fetch Nene but returned without him.
It was when Mk and Giyani were re-called to the stage for a tell-off battle that Kunene interrupted them to inform the public that the show was to end at that very moment.
… local comedians shine
Manzini – Local comedians once again outdid themselves at the comedy show.
Mk was the opening act and sent those in attendance into stitches with creative jokes constructed from day to day experiences.
He made a joke about one of Swaziland’s well known bishops saying he was caught by the police for drink-driving and was asked why he had indulged on ‘Pharaoh’s herbs’.
"The bishop answered and said he did not see what was wrong with it because Moses’ staff ate Pharaoh’s snakes," he said much to the crowd’s laughter.
Giyani was also a marvel on stage and made fun of Mk whom he said was a replica of Swazi TV Marketing Manager Lenny Shoulder.
"I am sure that all those wearing glasses see me twice as tall but I am actually not. Neither am I a premature (sic)," he said.
He further joked about how he never planned on being a comedian.
He said he hated mathematics at school because it was one of the most complicated subjects.
"Imagine they ask you that Nomsa had 20 chocolates and ate 15, what does she have? It is obvious that Nomsa will have bile or diabetes," he joked.
Mfo Maziya also made his mark when he joked about how some things just sound much better in English than in siSwati.
"Imagine asking a lady for her number and she answers, ‘sikhombisa, sitfupha, ‘kune’ and so forth. Obviously one would end up telling her to stop and say the number in English," he said.
