Malawi’s rising stand-up comedian Tannah making headlines

4

A promising comedian has germinated from the Malawi creative industry with his name hastily becoming household. This is the fairy-tale of Tannah Harawa.

The Lilongwe based young man has migrated from poetry to comedy, where things are working out for him. Discovery of his winning formulae has seen him become one of the most sought after artists on the land.

Talk of public events, organisers are not risking ignoring his presence considering his capability in spicing up matters. Based on this he continues to headline major stages.

The capital city man sent people into uncontrollable laughter during the Mafikizolo concert at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe two weeks ago. The energising response from the public made him inject more and more amusements.

According to Tannah, his comedy is deeply rooted in broken English. Having made a switch to comedy, he recorded a number of audios in broken English and they are in circulation across social media platforms.

The distinguished comic told Malawi24 yesterday that people should watch out for great works from him.

“Malawians should expect more things from me, all I need is their support.”

He also hinted on sharing the stage with the internationally recognised stand-up comedian, Daliso Chaponda, at a show whose dates will be announced soon.

On Friday, Tannah was scheduled to perform at Crossroads Hotel, during Sangie’s album launch.

As he continues to master broken English in comedy circles to give himself an identity, South Africa’s Trevor Noah is his source of inspiration.
