Basically I believe in karma. Nyihaho ekishuba I am rich mouth chairman’s daughter Kabuyanda LC 1 Nosi (north) don’t joke.

I didn’t think much of it (actually I was thinking of it on the back of my mind) when I graduated with a degree in journalism I was like what the heck why don’t I give it a try after a few skits am there am set and bammm I bump into one of the greatest comedians Dickens perv we chatted for 15munutes after the chat he is like you know what you can do stand up why don’t you come to Labonita for rehearsals next week I went and met Timothy Nyanzi and I have never looked back.
