Basketmouth Makes History, Wins 2nd Consecutive Savanna Pan-African Comic Award

It is the one night of the year where comedians, industry, friends and fans come together to celebrate the best in comedy from across Africa.

On Saturday 8 September, the 8thAnnual South African Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards® was hosted at The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City in Johannesburg – an event hailed as the largest comedy awards gathering of its kind on the continent.

The true showstoppers of the night, however, were definitely the 12 award recipients across the 12 categories, with this year’s Savanna Pan-African Comic of the Year Award going to Basketmouth from Nigeria.
This is the second time the Savanna Pan-African Comic of the Year Award has been given out – and this is also Basketmouth’s second win. He was one of five Pan-African nominees in the running to win the 2018 Waldo statuette, along with Carl Joshua Ncube (Zimbabwe), Kansiime Anne Entertainer (Uganda), Salvado (Uganda) and Charles Manase (Botswana), all of whom were flown to South Africa and hosted by Savanna and the awards teams.
Basketmouth, elated at his recognition, wrote on Instagram:
“Thank you @comicschoice @savannacider for this….I truly appreciate you guys, and to all my peeps that voted for me. You guys rock. #SavannaCCA #Back2Back.”
