"I am on my way to be a Neurosurgeon your help would enable me help other people in my continent in the near future & that`s the spirit of LuQuLuQu."
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the LuQuLuQu movement was forced to suspend our amazing gatherings and events with our LuQuLuQu fam and think of a way to bring us all together.
By the end of 2020, after a difficult year socially distancing and isolating, we thought what better way to cheer ourselves up then to organize a Comedy with a Purpose event with some of our favourite comedians? And that’s exactly what we did!
The one-of-a-kind comedy show titled “Africa is a Continent, African is a Country - Comedy with a Purpose” aired for free on our LuQuLuQu YouTube and Facebook pages where thousands of LuQuLuQu supporters watched their favourite comedians including Basketmouth, Daliso Chaponda, Ak Dans and Eddie Kadi. Hosting the event were our amazing (and hilarious) LuQuLuQu High Level Infuencers – Goliath & Goliath and Dr. King’ori. They were also joined by performances from UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador 2Baba and South African singer Lira, with celebrity appearances by Nomzamo Mbatha and Kat Graham, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassadors and Hend Sabry, World Food Programme Goodwill Ambassador.
The show celebrated Africa’s diversity in our cultures, ethnicities and languages while highlighting our collective responsibility of in supporting the most vulnerable communities - families forced to flee. After what has been as a challenging year to say the least, the pan-African comedy show provided much-needed comic relief.
