Shell Hall, Muson Centre recorded a record-breaking attendance for a comedy show at last Sunday’s Funnybone Untamed which was the debut comedy show of Comedian Funnybone. The hall recorded a capacity crowd of more than 2,000 guests as against the normal 1200 guests that the hall sits perfectly.
Guests came charged up and ready for a night of premium entertainment and they were not disappointed.
First came a number of warm-up performances from young and talented artistes who got the chance to thrill guests.
The evening kicked off in earnest when hosts for the night, IK Ogbonna and Adunni Ade stormed the stage to interact with guests and introduce back to back performances from Buchi, Senator, MC Shakara, Naomi Mac, Bovi, Whale Mouth, Mr 2kay and Pepenazi.
Then came the moment of the night, when Comedian Funnybone finally made his appearance onstage. At this stage, the guests got uncontrollably excited and cheered him up over staging such a show with so many crowds in the hall. His mum was reduced to tears at the sight of the superstar.
Funnybone took his show a notch higher, cracking jokes using his mum’s characteristics as well as sharing exciting experiences from his childhood days to University days. He delivered a 40-minute set and went on to appreciate everyone who supported his show acknowledging Wazobia FM OAP, Steve Onu ‘Yaw’ who produced the show.
His set was preceded by back-to-back musical performances from superstar artistes including Harry Song, Kcee, Iyanya, Aramide, Korede Bello, Bracket, Mi Abaga, Koker, Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz, Phyno and Olamide.
The night’s big surprise was an appearance by young Emmanuella who took guests to another level with her ‘This is not my real face’ performance. She went ahead to dish out comedy jokes. One of such jokes was when she said ‘The first time I heard Bovi, I thought it was a biscuit’. Guests busted out in laughter as she rounded off her set.
