Comedy doesn’t get the amount of attention it desires albeit it is one of the fastest-growing industries in Africa.

The main sponsor of the award is Savanna Premium Cider.

The unveiling of the nominees was on Wednesday, 10th of July at The Venue in Melrose Arch. Consequently, this year’s Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards nominees is the most exciting yet. This is because of its diversity, featuring the best comedians in the continent.
