On Saturday afternoon, endeared Ugandan comedian, Anne Kansiime, caused ripples among an audience attending an East Africa’s Got Talent (EAGT) event in Nairobi when she humorously called Jeff Koinange to the stage.
The witty actress was tasked with the duty of announcing the judges of the premiering East African show, and when it came to the Citizen TV’s anchor’s turn, she took to it a notch higher.
“This man is a living monument. Those people you see walking around with confidence. A former CNN reporter. Imagine a CNN reporter, while some of you are reporting on Facebook,” Kansiime joked, as the audience roared into laughter.
“One of the most renowned media personalities in Kenya. Mr. Handsome, the one with swag. Oh my! When he walks in you will know he owns 56kg of swag. Jeff Koinange,” Kansiime marvelously called upon the award-winning journalist.
Jeff Koinange indeed walked onto the podium, into a warm embrace with the Ugandan comedian.
The East African version of ‘Got Talent’, one of the world’s most popular reality television shows, will be aired on Citizen TV.
The judges will be Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange, Uganda's Capital FM's Gaetano Kwagwa, Tanzanian hitmaker Vanessa Mdee, and DJ Contact Makeda from Rwanda.
Ugandan queen of comedy Anne Kansiime will be the host for the show.
The show which was founded by British talent competition judge, Simon Cowell, runs in 58 countries and will now have Kenya, Uganda Tanzania, and Rwanda onboard.
The show that is to be filmed in Nairobi will run for 10 weeks as contestants go through three auditions.
Successful candidates will make it to the finals to battle it out for the grand prize of Ksh 5 million.
The show will be sponsored by top communications company Safaricom and Coca Cola Africa.
“This will be a platform to display the talent of people of all ages who have any gift that they would like to share with the world,” Safaricom Chief Customer Sylvia Mulinge noted.
