For his second back to Kigali, yet the first this year, Uganda’s talented Stand Up comedian Emeka left a lasting impression as he took to Kigali stage his art. Invited by Com Factory, one of the most sought Stand Up comedy events in Kigali, this was the first 2017 show, which took place at Kigali’s Galaxy Hotel on February 2nd.
Hosted by Comedian Babu, Com Factory also featured leading Comedy acts like Arthur Nkusi and George Birungi from Rwanda’s Comedy Knights group, alongside new talented guest comedians onto stage.
Being this month’s guest act, Collins Bareija alias Emeka was the concluding act, who cracked up the fully packed venue. Cladded in Kitengi (Similar to Nigerian Agbada), the dark skinned, medium height act hit stage with quite familiar Ice-breakers, which indeed charmed the audience.
His suave and vocal antics are a great tactic he holds when on stage, yet just like the name Emeka (Which is Nigerian) is quite complemented well by various stunts he does as he takes audience to Lagos, Abuja, through Naija land and back to Rwanda. Emeka’s pieces began right on his experience with how Rwandan ladies are Romantic through speech- which the comedian find harder differentiating between a complement and an abuse. Emeka’s piece on Nigerian Radio Sports commentators was another one which aroused the audience, on top of mimicking Indians too. The audience also saw moments when Arthur, Emeka and Babu performed all together onto one stage.
“Ive felt really prevailed returning back for this performance. I love the audience for its feedback, which as a great motivation for me, ” remarked Emeka.
Com Factory is to commence every Thursday from 7pm, and will feature surprise acts onto stage according to organisers.
