The Monitor :: Kansiime leaves Gaborone in stitches








The 28-year-old entertainer was in the country at the invitation of Soul Food Comedy. The comedian arrived last Thursday and her two-day shows at Molapo Piazza and Thapong Visual Arts Centre were sold out according to the events’ organiser, Karabo Musa.

A diverse age group graced the first performance at Molapo Piazza. The crowd went wild when Kansiime appeared on stage. Clad in white and black attire, she received a loud cheer, she left the audience teary-eyed throughout her one-hour stand-up comedy.

She began her performance with jokes about her experience with local women.

She said in Uganda, a woman is expected to have a child immediately after getting married.

“You know its funny how in Uganda immediately after your wedding day, you are expected to have a child.

But its so funny how when you do want to make a baby and it doesn’t happen back in Uganda, you will have your aunt giving you weird advice on how to make it happen. My aunt told me to somersault in bed. At one point, she gave me leaves to drink so that I could become pregnant. What is this?” she said.

Kansiime joked wondered why couples often refer to each other as ‘baby’ or ‘honey’ saying that such words have a totally different meaning to affection.

“Why do people call one another words

like baby or honey? Honey is for the spread you put on your bread. Instead why don’t you call them something with authority like Member of Parliament or my traffic lights,” she said throwing attendants into laughter.

The award winning comedian said everything is fake these days.

“People have fake hair, I mean even the eye lashes are fake these days. Why do people edit themselves? You know you will take a nice girl from the club, but when you wake up in the morning, you would think you have been attacked,” she joked. 

After her performance, Kansiime danced the night away and took pictures with her local fans.

She then posted on her fan page saying: “Botswana truly is the land of diamonds.

The Botswana have truly made me feel like one”. She joked that she was told Botswana is the land of diamonds, but she has gone around and seen no diamond.

Musa said that by inviting Kansiime, they hope Batswana will realise that comedy can be a career choice and a source of livelihood. “Botswana has not yet reached the stage where it can export comedy as a means of earning money, but we are getting there,” Musa said.

Supporting acts at the show were local poet Mandisa, Debbie with a T, comedians, Charles and Ray Lyric and others.
