Last night in Lagos, fun lovers defied the gloomy weather to attend FunnyBone Untamed, an annual comedy show of Nigerian actor and comedian, FunnyBone.
In no particular order, TheNewsGuru takes a look at the biggest flops witnessed at the event that has generated myriad of opinions on social media
1.TBoss failed to shine
Amidst the hype that greeted the announcement of TBoss and Bassey as the compere for the show, the former Big Brother Naija stars failed to add spark and energy to the event.
When they mounted the stage, the fire in Bassey’s voice got us to pay attention, but TBoss couldn’t sustain it with the right statements to compliment Bassey. Perhaps the event would have started on a bright note If she had granted the request of Bassey, who teased her to twerk.
- Efe’s lacklustre performance
If Big Brother Naija winner, Efe must reign in the Nigerian music terrain, then he needs to upgrade his performance technique. As a rapper, delivering an engaging performance has gone beyond jumping the length and breadth of the stage. Efe’s honey -moon period is over and when it comes to music ratings, Nigerian music lovers will evaluate him, just the way they evaluate any other pop star.
His performance at Funny Bone Untamed was not based on logistics; he needs to master the art of giving an irresistible stage performance.
- Helen Paul succeeded in delivering drab jokes
No doubt Helen Paul is a force to be reckoned with in the Nigerian comedy industry. The comedienne mounted the stage like someone who was told to deliver spontaneous jokes.At the end of her 5 minutes allotted time, Paul was unable to throw a major punch line that will get the audience cackling
4. 2face shows his vulgar side
The audience screamed when 2face mounted the stage. You could literally see the anticipation and excitement on their faces. 2baba as he is fondly called performed his popular songs.
The acclaimed pop-star changed the rhythm of the event when he did a vulgar remix of his hit song, Holy. The sexual connotations in the lyrics offended the sensibilities of some individuals in the audience.
- Mr Jollof, booed on stage
Warri-based comedian, Mr. Jollof dominated the subject of discussion on social media after he was booed off stage at Funnybone’s show. TheNewsGuru reports that the budding comedian was not at his best as opposed to what he is known for. The embarrassed rib cracker took to his Instagram account to express his disappointment.
Hear him:”Tonight was a bad night for me. I don’t know what went wrong. But the audience didn’t want me on stage.Got booed to get off the stage. Well, every disappointment is a blessing. Well before e turn national news, make I report myself” he wrote.
