Ghanaian stand up comedian, id-James Brown says “Nigerian comedians are not funny and not even better when it comes to comedy”.
He made this statement during an interview with Ordatey Gh - renowned blogger.
It’s well said that when it comes to comedy in Africa most people look no further than that of Nigeria. This might be due to their blend of English which they’ve made to look more unique based on how they speak it — “pidgin”. This makes their content go viral beyond the continent.
But James Brown claims, Ghanaians can do better than what Nigerians are doing and there is a need for us to stop praising them and focus on our own, pushing it beyond our national boundaries and making it be accepted by Africans and expats.
