Telecom service provider, Globacom, last Sunday treated residents of Yenagoa, Capital of Bayelsa State to another edition of its comedy show tagged Glo Laffta Fest.
Defying the rains, fun-loving residents of the city trooped out in numbers to witness performances by top comedy icons.
The show has been receiving rave reviews as the country’s biggest comedy show so far.
The show opened with up and coming acts such as home boy, Emmanuel Debegene, aka MC Emmaralo; Don Wizzy, British Pastors, Barrack King and G-Bones who set the mood for the more resourceful comedians who later performed.
De Don, who is a Lagos-based comedian and on-air-personality, was the first of the celebrated artistes to mount the stage, followed by Seyi Law, who was making his first appearance on the show.
Next in line was Senator, the Delta State-born comic who gave Bayelsa women something to cheer about when he joked that they are so street-wise that no man could take advantage of them even if they (the women) were drunk.
Other performers include Dan D’Humorous, 2CanTok as well as Gordons who was the indubitable lord of the night.
The exciting show was anchored by Nollywood star actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie.
In a dance competition which was one of the highlights of the show, Gift Osareme got the crown and a goodie bag for her performance while Simeone Soroghaye, a worker and part-time student walked home with the winning prize in the male category.
The presence of Nollywood actors, Kanayo O. Kanayo and Angela Okorie, who were celebrity guests at the event, provided additional excitement at the show.
