Will it be right to say that the year 2016, started on a wrong footing especially for some in the entertainment industry with the New Year beef between two singers which has continued to transcend to various entertainers.
The industry had Don Jazzy and Olamide open the floor of the beef then followed by Wizkid and Dammy Krane, then Blackface and Wizkid, Tunde Ednut and music producer, Shizzi and now it is the turn of the comedians.
Some fans woke up early to a shocker from popular Lagos based OAP and comedian, Lolo1, who seems not to be cool with the way her fellow colleague, Princess, handles the stage while cracking her jokes.
She stated that considering the respect she has for the craft of Standup comedy, females need to work hard to improve their stage performance rather than being rude as she points accusing fingers on Princess.
Read her write-up to Princess below before she decided to take it down before other fans get to see it.
“Good morning guys! I have some things I’ve always wanted to get off my mind.
“I totally respect and have absolute faith in the growth of the “Stand Up” comedy industry in Nigeria. But I think Females in this industry have a whole lot of work to do. We’re strong, we are beautiful and we are talented but unfortunately some have allowed “pettiness” “rudeness ” and downright classlessness, override whatever form of talent they have.
“I’m usually not one to call people out, (especially my colleagues) but at this point, someone needs to talk to PRINCESS the ‘comedian’. Madam, what you do on stage is no longer comedy. You’re still acting after the audience have gone. Your attitude, downright rudeness and absolute ridiculousness on stage is an embarrassment to female comedians. As a so called veteran, you of all people should know that when the joke is no longer funny, it’s time to exit the stage. If you know her, please tell her. Madam, abeg clear road. It’s either you work on your craft and fix whatever psychological and emotional issues you have, or leave the stage. Either way, stop embarrassing us.”
