First time I stumbled on one of Anne Kansiime videos, I couldn’t stop laughing. It was Anne forcing a marriage proposal; simply epic and hilarious. I had to watch over and over again. Her delivery was on point with her thick accent. Kansiime Kubiryaba Anne popularly known as Anne Kansiime, is a Ugandan entertainer, comedienne, and actress. One isn’t surprised as she beats two of Nigeria’s finest comedians Basket Mouth and Klint Da Drunk to clinch the Nollywood & African People’s Choice Award (NAFCA) in the category of Favourite Comedian. This announcement was made 4th August.
The award will be presented to Kansiime on September 12th at The Orpheum Theatre Broadway, Los Angeles, and U.S.A where the 5th edition of the awards will be held.
