Popular Kenyan comedian Chipukeezy is set to perform in Dallas, United States this coming weekend at the prestigious Afrimma Awards.
Chipukeezy said he is delighted to be the first Kenyan entertainer to stage a performance at an event of such magnitude in the US. “I am the first Kenyan comedian to be given such an international stage and I am set to make history once I'm in Dallas,” he told MondayBlues.
“I know this opportunity will open more doors for me and other Kenyan comedians,” the funny man added.
His meeting with his idol, Kevin Hart in the US early this year seems to have raised his profile on the international stage.
On Sunday, the Kenyan entertainer will share the stage with renown Nigerian comedian Basketmouth at Awards show.
Kenyan artistes including Sauti Sol, Nyashinski, Victoria Kimani, Avril, Akothee, Willy Paul and Vista as well as deejays Crème de la Crème, Mfalme and Kalonje have been nominated for the awards.
“I am overwhelmed and grateful to God for all this. It is proof that consistency, discipline and hard work pays. I thank the Tanzania company for their offer. What a big surprise,” he said.
