Tats Nkonzo was the obvious underdog amongst the South African trio during the Saturday night’s Strictly Come Laughing comedy show at Boipuso Hall. But by the end of the night, the comedian had left a big mark, winning hearts through his musical jokes.

The line up of the comedy show that was hosted by Ribcracker consisted of Phenyo, Mawee, Kagiso Lediga, David Kibuuka and Nkonzo The moment the South African comic stepped on the stage carrying his guitar a number of women in the audience screamed mostly admiring him for his ‘good’ looks.

Without introducing himself he started playing the guitar with an RnB rhythm as he sang ‘Mic 1,2…1, 2 testing’. The comedian explained how powerful music is especially to the black society. “With music us black people can never go wrong. We can sing at any occasion. When you beat a black child there is a certain sound that they make,” he said as he sang Maxwell’s This woman’s work and Aretha Franklyn’s You make me feel.
