Doc Vikela gets priceless lessons in Botswana

ONE of the country’s top comedians, Doc Vikela, has described comedy as the spice of life, which helped relieve people of stress, while at the same time unpacking governance issues at a higher level through fits of laughter.

In a wide-ranging interview with NewsDay following his return from Botswana, where he staged comedy shows, the award-winning comedian said comedy also helped to break the ground for discussing sensitive matters in a light-hearted manner.

Doc Vikela said he enjoyed himself at the Gaborone International Music and Culture Festival held over four days, adding that he picked up a few precious lessons in the process.

“It was an awesome experience. My humour was appreciated like never before and the audience totally loved my set. They were with me all the way and I felt more at home,” the comedian said.

“Comedy relieves stress. It also takes a dig on the day-to-day issues in a higher manner. It provokes debate and humbles oppression.”
Doc Vikela challenged stakeholders in the local comedy industry to embrace high levels of professionalism so that the sector would be taken seriously.

“While in Botswana, the greatest lesson I got hold of was professionalism. Comedy needs undivided attention in a bid to succeed. Most of the comedians there shared their experiences in the business and I realised that as Zimbabwe, we still have a long way to go,” he said.
Some of the artists that took to the stage with the Zimbabwean comedian included Salvado from Uganda, Trevor Gumbi and Lihle from South Africa backed with local acts.

Doc Vikela also promised fans to expect great performances at the Shoko Festival from September 23 to 25 and the Intwasa Festival from September 26 to October 21.

Born Victor Mpofu, Doc Vikela co-founded Simuka Comedy with fellow top comedian, Simba the Comic King.

Ugandan comedy queen, Anne Kansiime, has described him as one of Africa’s finest comedians.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts about %meta_keyword%. Regards

  • July 20, 2017 at 11:03 am

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera. Superb Blog!

  • June 14, 2017 at 5:41 pm

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker
    then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider
    at a fair price? Kudos, I appreciate it!

  • June 14, 2017 at 12:19 pm

    Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my
    facebook group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content.
    Please let me know. Cheers

  • June 14, 2017 at 12:19 pm

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you
    could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • June 11, 2017 at 4:50 pm

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they
    plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people could
    take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  • April 14, 2017 at 8:00 am

    Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay.

    I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

  • April 8, 2017 at 7:31 am

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established
    blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal
    but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but
    I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?

  • April 5, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for
    your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  • April 5, 2017 at 9:39 am

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
    a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  • March 29, 2017 at 10:51 am

    When some one searches for his necessary thing, so he/she

  • March 27, 2017 at 2:32 am

    Can I simply just say what a relief to discover someone that genuinely understands what they’re discussing over the internet.
    You certainly realize how to bring an issue to
    light and make it important. More people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story.

    It’s surprising you are not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

  • March 24, 2017 at 1:52 pm

    I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve offered to your post.

    They’re very convincing and will definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too brief for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.

    much appreciated.
