For many, it was an opportunity to let their hairs down and laugh away their worries as the two acts were uniquely on point, giving the audience what they needed to hear when they needed to hear it.

After their truly hilarious performance the stage was taken by a myriad of up and coming comedy and theatre acts whose short yet funny skits rolled on endlessly. Acts like Mc Smile, Mc Ebullient, Mc Apostle, Mc Solution, Mc Funny Mouth, Daddy Bonky, Omo Meji amongst others were indeed outstanding.

Unexpectedly, many of the new acts had fresh, original content that would have given established acts a run for their money. Their insightful jibes and truly talented delivery in local Pidgin-English parlance made the show truly second to none other.
