Vocal comedian Sande Bush popularly known as Dr Ofweneke was left with an egg on the face after he failed to make a joke worth laughing on the dais – when every congregant had vouched for him to crack ribs.
The presiding minister of faith was forced to take him off the stage – so that he does not continue to embarrass himself.
Before a strong pack of 2, 500 congregants, Dr Ofweneke failed to impress – he lives to tell the story.
“I was given an opportunity to hold on the programme in a church because the master of ceremony was tired. I was just starting off my career; the joke I gave got everybody staring at me. Not even a single person laughed. So the pastor came and got me off stage,” he told eDaily.
However, Dr Ofweneke says his future was not shaped by that one incident – instead, it motivated him to provoke the funny man in him that today quotas celebrate.
The father-of-one hosts Tonight Live, a comedy show on Ebru Africa Television.
The comic, who recently engaged his longtime girlfriend Veronica Wanja-Sande, better known as Nicah the Queen, says his nuptials is around the corner, but he wouldn’t disclose concrete date.
Keep it eDaily to give you exclusive details of Ofweneke and Nicah’s wedding that is in the offing.
