For the second year running, Alibaba the doyen of Nigerian comedy rolls in the New Year with a spectacular evening of comedy and music that features the crème de la crème of Nigerian entertainment.
The event that started in January 1 2015 aims to celebrate the highlights of the year that just ended and usher in 2016 with good cheer and exhilarating merriment with musical performances and outstanding standup comedy routines.
The out gone year would be reviewed by 12 of the biggest names in comedy with quips, banter and a healthy dose of wit.
It promises to be fun filled with various segments such as A Few Good Men features a medley by Cobhams, Bez, Timi Dakolo, Darey, Nosa and Praiz.
The Roast segment features A-List entertainers such 2face, Sound Sultan, Dede Mabiaku among others skewering comedians for being the butt of their jokes during the year. In the spirit of equality and “feminism”, comediennes will take on the womenfolk and send hilarious barbs at them as well.
The highlight of the2016 edition is the selection of the Alibaba Spontaneity competition winner, a culmination of whole year’s contest. The 12 contestants have jostled four times in 2015 to show their innate ability to make audiences laugh spontaneously.
