Over the weekend precisely on Sunday 11th September, 2016 the 2nd edition of Laff&Jump show held in Manuex Events Centre, Jakpa Road.
The show began at 2pm with the green carpet which was hosted by the meanest fitness trainer, EmmaPassions and co-hosted by the delectable and charming Mrs. Rejoice Debekeme (wife of Emmaralo. She’s also an OAP at Crown fm)
The show proper began at 3:50pm. The audience were thrilled with jokes from various comedians amongst who were; Betterpikin, Cartoon boy, Hakuna matata, Oghene pikin, Pere J, YungChief, Zion Oshiobuge, Free mouth, Privileged son and many others.
Music was not left out as Kelvinsapp was also present at the event. And boy! This dude can sing! I haven’t heard a guy sang so well in a while, he has a very unique voice and you can tell as he got people literally on their feet dancing. ‘Who u help’ crooner, Shun bebe was also live at the event and he also thrilled the audience. Other musicians were; Dr & Mrs. Mudi (a couple) and Ice kid.
High point of the event was the arousing ovation given to the brain behind the event, Emmaralo who was brought up stage by Yungchief.
The event came to an end when winners of the Talent hunt competition were announced. 7 of them made it to the final stage and the talent hunt was organised by Emmaralo. 4 were for comedy and 3 for music and they performed live at the event where the audience voted for their favourite contestant. McCallertunes and Wisdom won the comedy and music competition respectively. They were both awarded with a cash prize of #30,000 (thirty thousand naira) each.
Comedian Gandoki, turned up late, due to some logistic hitches, when most people had left.
It was a great show, great venue, warm and receptive audience, great acts and good value for money. Audience won giveaways from airtel and warri online shop.
Did I mention it sold out?! Despite the recession we are experiencing it didn’t stop people from turning out. Whoever said ”Warri people no dey go show”?
Big ups to the organisers and sponsors of the event, I’m looking forward to the 3rd edition of Laff&Jump!
