Nigerian artiste David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has been selected as one of the panelists for the upcoming Comedy Central Roast.
The A-list Nigerian singer is therefore set to become the first Nigerian to ever grace the stage.
Talking about the upcoming show, Davido said: “I’m such a big fan of Comedy Central, this is going to be a hilarious night. I’m ready, Africa are you ready? This is a Roast so nothing is off limits.”
Other than dropping hits, Davido is well known for having a good sense of humour so it’s safe to say he’ll bring a lot of good energy and fun jokes to the show.
South African top actress Pearl Thusi, who has been dubbed the roast master, will also be joining Davido on the same stage.
Other panelists expected at the TV show include Moshe Ndiki, Pierre Van Pletzen, Francois Van Coke, Mark Fish, Nina Hastie, Moonchild Sanelly, Joey Rasdien, and Papa Penny.
Since the early 2000s, Comedy Central has expanded globally with localised channels in Southeast Asia, Europe, Latin America, New Zealand, Middle East and Africa.
The Comedy Central Roast of AKA, which was initiated by Viacom International Media Networks Africa, will hold at the Teatro at Montecasino, Johannesburg, South Africa, on February 21, 2019.
