Residents of Ikorodu, Lagos, have cause to smile this weekend as national telecommun-ications operator, Globacom, has concluded arrangements to hold its hilarious comedy show, Glo Laffta Fest, in the town this Sunday.
The company announced via a press statement in Lagos on Friday that the event would be held at the Ikorodu Musical Village at 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 13. To make it a comedy show to remember, Globacom stated, the continent’s best comedians have been lined up to perform at the event. They include Basketmouth, Gordons, Salvador from Uganda, Helen Paul, Bash, Kenny Black and Acapella. The comics are expected to leave the audience reeling with laughter with hilarious jokes.
Screen divas, Uche Jombo and Ebube Nwagbo, will anchor the show which is expected to attract Glo subscribers and dignitaries from different areas of life. It will also have Nollywood legends, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Patience Ozokwor (Mama G), Odunlade Adekola and Mr. Latin as celebrity guests, Globacom said in the statement.
“We are taking the fun to the heart of Ikorodu this Sunday. The people of this city should get ready to enjoy themselves like they have not done before. The experience will be simply breathtaking,” the company added.
Giving an indication of what to expect at the show, Basketmouth urged the people of Ikorodu to expect “a pleasant surprise” as he is coming fully loaded for them. Similarly, Gordons, whose full name is Godwin Komone, said, “It would be a Sunday to remember for the people of Ikorodu”.
To attend the Ikorodu Laffta Fest comedy show, Glo subscribers are expected to use up to N2,000 credit within one month and text LOL with the location name to the short code 240; for example, “LOL Ikeja” to 240.
