Inside Ann Kansiime’s comedy show

0

Thursday evening was epic. We laughed, sang and danced at Ann Kansiime’s maiden solo show dubbed I am Kansiime. It may have been a comedy show but Kampalans need an excuse to dress up and look good. This was one good excuse.

The event was attended the big names on Uganda’s social scene plus Queen Katwe director Mira Nair. Also in the house was The South African singing sensation Yvonne Chaka Chaka who she is a great fan of Kansiime whose skits she has watched on TV and YouTube. So, she decided to make the trip ‘so as not to miss her daughter’s first show’.  She had spend three years putting together a unique show and we can say it was worth the wait.

Here are some photos from the event
