Ugandan comedian Annie Kansiime who jetted into the country last evening says she has no choice but to rock Malawians with her jokes mostly about happenings in her life.
Speaking in an interview at a guest house where she is being hosted by Q. Malewezi’s Qoncept Creative in Lilongwe, Kansiime said she will dwell on what has happened in her life in the past two years after her first appearance in Malawi.
The comedian, who says she is motivated by Malawi’s hospitality, said she will also tackle a few other new things which have taken place in the country in the past two years.
Said Kansiime: “I felt welcomed even not in ways I am welcomed in my own home. You will get to know about things that have been happening in my life for the past year, for instance, I have been married to a wonderful man.”
The comedian is scheduled to perform at Bingu International Conference Centre (Bicc) on Saturday where she also performed two years ago courtesy of the same organisers, Qoncept Creative.
On his part, Malewezi said Qoncept Creative felt compelled to invite Kansiime again because of the success of the first show and they believe the artist will build on her experience in Malawi to deliver much better to the enthusiastic audience.
He said: “We have a long time to prepare and for her to get a local context as well. We are going to build on her experience here and I believe that it is going to be a much better show.”
Kansiime, who is never short of jokes, started the press conference on a lighter note by complaining about the height of the camera tripod stands in relation to her small stature.
“Now this is not fair! I will look very short, I have to stand here so that at least we can look at each other in the face,” she said while jumping onto a concrete platform.
The team of journalists obliged and adjusted to her level and the press conference started.
