The comedian, who spoke up strongly against the SARS attacks in Nigeria about two years ago, said  “Part of this pressure is from the society. When something happens you now put pressure on people that don’t want to say anything. Everybody is putting pressure on celebrities because they are celebrities. They don’t have to say anything. You know why? Are you holding doctors to the same responsibility? Are you holding bankers? Are you holding footballers? So because these people are in entertainment and they are popular everybody would say ‘you, you are just quiet. Then people will say things they are not supposed to say.”

Another comedian, Forever also called on Showmax Nigeria to create shows for Nigerian stand-up comedians that would help showcase their talents to the world as Netflix does with many top comedians.

 

The Digital Content Creators’ Brunch is one of the many activities lined up for this year’s awards festival. The week-long activities for this year started on Saturday, May 7, 2022 with an opening night gala.  This was followed by a runway show on Sunday, May 8, 2022. On Monday, May 9, 2022, a session was held for young filmmakers in the industry.

Other activities for this year’s awards event are the Content Marketing Workshop, a celebration of Africa’s diversity, a nominees’ gala, and the main award ceremony on Saturday, May 14, 2022.
