Pioneers in the art of comedy in Nigeria, Ali Baba, Opa Williams and Koffi led a host of Nigerian comedians to storm Club Rumours, Victoria Island, Lagos last night to witness the launch of a first-of-its kind comedy platform, Comedy+.

An initial one-month free access period is available upon first time download and log-in by sending COMEDY to 2100. Subsequent access is subscription based. The app can also be downloaded here.

Other comedians that graced the launch include Saka, Nedu, Ushbebe, Emmaohmygod, Senator, Etinosa, Longmancomedian, MCShakara, Stillringing, Mark Angel, Monica Friday, Wofaifada, Josh2funny, Ebiye, Deeone, Bellokreb, Romeowj.

At the launch, Opa William and Ali Baba were specially recognised with awards for their immense contribution to the growth of the comedy industry. The award was presented by MTN’s Strategy and Development Executive, Adekunle Adebiyi.

For the flock of comedians present at the event, Comedy+ is welcome initiative that will provide adequate exposure and reward for their talent.

They were all in agreement that Comedy+ is a befitting reward platform for their creativity that is coming at the time when the comedy industry needs coordination.
