Since as far back as 2004, Comedian of the year (PERA Awards) – Lafup, has been dishing out back-to-back premium entertainment in the city of Ibadan. Not to forget his milestones as an undergraduate at the premier University of Ibadan, hosting – efrebor now re-branded as #LAFUUPLIVE and then – #theCircus.
This year was all about thanksgiving and celebrating his 15-year mark on stage as the biggest entertainment export out of Ibadan.
The B’obagunwa of comedy had a very lengthy list of industry loyalists – A-list co
medians and actors alike, who came around to show love, support and celebrate his laudable achievements speaking of big shots like OMOBABA, Princess, Afeez ‘SAKA’ Ayetoro, Kenny Blaq, Saidi Balogun, , Peteru, Still Ringing, Shete and several others who graced the stage in turns to unleash the hilarious #LafupLive experience.
Early on, we enjoyed beautiful performances from talented up and coming acts such as Fantasticks, Odanzy, TROD (the return of DaGrin), MC Twinkle to list a few before doses of unscripted comedy from the likes of Tai Chi, Chinko, Dr Smile, Package, Gifted Mouth, ATM, etc.
Host, Lafup whose birthday was a day before – 25th December, made a magical entry and dazzled in an African print akara tux with a pair of white sneakers. In the spirit of the season, there were tonnes of gift items to giveaway courtesy of Maltina @maltina and MTN @mtnng and other named and unnamed sponsoring brands, a lucky guest also won an all expense paid trip to Dubai courtesy of U fit fly.
Highlight of the night was when two guests won themselves a live chicken and 10
litres of petrol; the hall could not contain the hilarity and uproariousness. To wrap things up, there was cutting of cake to mark the 15th anniversary celebrations.
Guests were teased with musical hit bangers from the wheels of DJ Banky and DJ Secxy.
Other dignitaries in attendance include Hon. Dapo Lam Adesina, Engr. Femi Babalola, Muyiwa Ademola and DJ Semight
