Ndola hosts Tilowa Comedy Night


IT WAS the turn of Ndola the friendly city last weekend to host the comedy duo of K-Star and Kapembwa, aka ‘Mkushi accents’, at Izu Hall in the suburb of Hillcrest.
The show was titled the ‘Tilowa Comedy Night’ and organised by Hansik Events, who recently organised another show featuring Danny Kaya in Ndola.
But this time around, it was comedy that took centre stage. The warming up of the stage was done by Ndola-based comedian Winston Ngosa, who proved the perfect impersonator of President Edgar Lungu. After his performance, it was clear just why others call him the ‘Presidential Voice’.
He was followed by Larlow, who hails from Nkeyema district in Western Province.
Larlow, whose real name is Matthias Chilala, works as a town planner and performs comedy for fun. He had a noticeable connection with his audience while using his comedy to touch on a range of societal issues.
Next up was Kelvin Mulenga, who is Kitwe-based but has of late gained a fan base among comedy lovers in Ndola. His creativity on the night was appreciated by the audience.
Sun FM radio presenter Steve N’cube, or ‘So Sick’, was on hand to provide music during a brief interlude and also doubled as master of ceremonies with a raw sense of humour.
But the comedian who needed no introduction during the show was the versatile veteran, Joseph Simukonda, alias Ba Monde.
A highlight of his set was his narration of how various church denominations in Zambia worship. Although the material is now tired and the same joke has been shared by other notable comedians, the audience still seemed tickled.
The night’s headliners, K-Star and Kapembwa, capped the show with a hilarious duo act featuring their ‘Mkushi accents’ that have made them social media famous.
After a five-hour show, the packed hall was filled with satisfied clients who managed to work off the week’s stress through comedy.
