Comedy in Nigeria has metamorphosed into a giant caterpillar and the comedians are certainly not left out of this exponential growth. They have enjoyed massive patronage, huge followership, popularity, financial independence and the likes of it.
Over the past years, Nigerians have witnessed the evolution of the comedy industry. Some of us practically grew up fancying comedy shows like “Night of a thousand laugh by Opa William, Crack your ribs by Julius Agu, Ay live, Lord of the ribs by Basket Mouth, Bovi’s Man on Fire and a whole lot of others.
Need more say, let me introduce you to the 21st century comedy show you should not be missing out on! GENERALLY SPEAKING, a comedy show owned by Abuja's most promising comedian and on-air personality, Israel Chukwuyem Jude, a.k.a Chuks d General.
Generally Speaking is an event that has been nursed and nurtured. It premiered in 2016 at the prestigious Transcorp Hilton, Abuja. The premiere was a blast and a fun galore as top-notch comedians led by Ali Baba cracked so many ribs at the star- studded show.
A fusion of Abuja based comedians and Lagos based artistes thrilled the audience with scintillating jokes as they screamed with delight. One after the other, the Lagos artistes, comedians, including Alibaba, AY comedian, Seyilaw, Funnybone, Acapella and the instagram sensation Lasisi Elenu, came on stage to thrill the guests. The Legendary RMD Nigeria’s foremost actor was ushered on stage amidst loud cries of excitement from his teeming fans. Amongst notable personalities that put up appearance was Senator Dino Melaye.
The show has since gained popularity not only in Nigeria but globally.
You know that popular saying which goes;” Laughter” is food for the soul” can really not be overemphasized.
Chuks D General has also rattled his fans in faraway Cote D' Ivoire with presence at the Nigerian Trade Fair where special stand was created for Nigerians to watch the show Generally Speaking with Chuks D General.
On arrival, Chuks D General was the cynosure of all eyes and the news went viral which prompted the Director General of Tourism in the country to come out and welcome him alongside Chairman of Mudi Fashion and Uzee. They were taken around places to show some interesting artifacts, tourism locations and some historical pride of Cote D' Ivoire.
No doubt, the visit was not only interesting but attracted more event extensions for him especially as he held the Nigerian Trade Fair spellbound with his live masterpiece presentations and his Generally Speaking event. He has been engaged in several interviews while making new friends and fans.
This year, he is back again with his annual comedy show, tagged 'Generally Speaking', which is scheduled to hold on Mother’s Day.
