Glo paints Eagles Club, Surulere green with Laffta Fest
Over 4,000 Glo subscribers thronged the Eagle Club, Surulere last Sunday as the Glo Laffta Fest comedy show train landed in Lagos.
Lagosians anticipating an evening of unlimited entertainment from the comedians billed to perform at the event started thronging the event venue as early by 2pm and by 4pm the auditorium had been filled to maximum capacity, with many of the guests waiting outside the venue
The venue was fully lit with green lighting effects, representing the colors of the Glo brand which set the mood for the evening.
It was fun all the way as comedians thrilled the audience endlessly leaving them laughing from the beginning to the end of the show. No wonder, many of them refused to leave the venue at the end, clamoring for more jokes.
The show was anchored by ever impressive comedian, Basketmouth, who in his usual hilarious element announced the comedians and performers one after the other in a manner that left the audience in suspense on who would be the next comedian on stage.
The night witnessed outstanding performance from Osama, D Don, Julius Agwu, I go Dye, Gordons, and Odogwu, who held the audience spell bound, dishing out rib- cracking jokes to the delight of the crowd.
Julius Agwu who said this was his first performance since he did brain surgery gave a vivid account of his close shave with death amidst the joke session. He thanked God for sparing his life and gave kudos to Globacom for believing in him after the surgery.
One of the side attractions witnessed during the competition was dancing competition which was arranged by Rekaardo Banks in which Male and female guests were called up on stage to dance. They all danced to Rekaardo’s rendition of his hit tracks including ‘Catapult’, ‘Corner’, ‘Sugar Baby’ and ‘Tomorrow’. It was, however a ten year old pupil of Olayomi Private school Surulere, Leke Adisa that eventually won the competition.
Nkechi Maduka who attended the show said she was thrilled by the comedians. “The jokes by Gordons and I go Dye were rib cracking. I’m really glad I came for the show. I can’t wait for the Ikeja edition,” she enthused.
Globacom in a statement said that Laffta Fest comedy show was developed to give back to its teeming subscribers.
