Nigerian comedian and radio personality, Acapella had his yearly comedy show tagged Comedy Goes 2 Church on February 26th 2017 at David’s Christian Centre. This edition was special because the 5th anniversary of the show was being celebrated.
The stage was graced by renowned comedians and gospel artistes like Akpororo, Sammy Okposo,Laolu Gbenjo , Arole, Chimaraph and others
Speaking on why he took comedy to church, the vivacious comedian said Its a way to discover talents in the kingdom and also create an alternative for Christians who might not be comfortable with attending secular shows.
According to him:” Though it hasn’t been easy hosting this show for the past 5 years, because we hardly get support from corporate bodies ,on the flip side it has been rewarding using this platform to promote the kingdom, discover talents in the kingdom and also create an alternative for Christians who prefer ethical entertainment”
He shed more light on how he has been able to sustain the show for five years.
“Five years isn’t a joke in this highly competitive entertainment circle, I’m happy, privileged and honoured. Although, it hasn’t been easy to pull through, putting a show together is one thing, and having people to attend and support is another thing, so I’m happy, its can only be God. I also can’t end this without saying a big thank you to my Father in the Lord, Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo and his ever blazing wife for giving me this platform to express myself.”
