Vubwi stands out at Night of Laughter


Zambian comedian Vubwi delivered a perfect comic set that won her the hearts of many people at the Vilekeke Night of Laughter at Sunbird Mount Soche in Blantyre on Sunday night.

This was a last act of the Vilekeke Night of Laughter dubbed Billionaires Edition and it followed two other events at Sunbird Mzuzu on Friday and Sunbird Capital in Lilongwe.

Vubwi, who stars as a drunkard in her comic set, kept the audience attentive throughout her performance and, after she finished, she received a standing ovation, paving the way for Botswana’s William Last KRM.


Hosted by Nya Uyu, real name Feslistus Ngwira, who flew the country’s flag in a platform that brought three countries namely Malawi, Zambia and Botswana, Vubwi kept the stage lively.

“It feels great to receive such support here in Blantyre as well as Lilongwe and Mzuzu. Comedy is not easy; making people laugh needs a lot. You really need to be observant and sensitive; otherwise, I enjoy comedy because it is like therapy to me,” she said.

There were a lot of expectations from William KRM, who, despite his popularity, failed to translate his Tik Tok adventures to the stage.


Probably his standout highlight was when he performed, switching to his rap game with the audience, which he had asked to come closer to the stage, singing along.

There were performances from other Zambian comedians such as Logic.

Nya Uyu, who at one-time brought social media influencer Pemphero Mphande and Tonderai Banda representing Onesimus in a battle for the hot seat, said she has been motivated to push for more comic activities with the support received in the three shows.

“We discovered there is a gap in as far as offering comedy is concerned. We want comedy to be our culture and we do have a space for comedy and the future of comedy is brighter in the country,” she said.

The event, a collaboration between Vilekeke Events and Sound of Addicts, was well organised except for a few delays that were probably aimed at buying time.

“I enjoyed it; you need such moments, especially in these stressful times,” one of the patrons Rebecca Tembo, said.
