Why Sir Wick­nell flflies busi­ness class

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Show­biz Cor­re­spon­dent

CO­ME­DIAN Carl Joshua Ncube says “Sir” Wick­nell Chivayo flies busi­ness class/first class as it is cheaper con­sid­er­ing he would have to buy three seats in econ­omy class in or­der to fit be­cause of his huge frame.

Ncube, who was in Bu­l­awayo ear­lier in the week on a quest to break the Guin­ness World Record of the Most Com­edy shows in a week, did not waste the op­por­tu­nity to take a dig at the larger than life busi­ness mogul.

“Sir Wick­nell has been say­ing I’m not fun­nier than Trevor Noah and that I’m a lit­tle poor co­me­dian be­cause when he trav­els over­seas, he flies busi­ness class while I use econ­omy. How­ever, the rea­son he uses busi­ness class is that it’s cheaper than econ­omy class as his body struc­ture would oc­cupy three econ­omy seats which is more ex­pen­sive,” said Ncube who was per­form­ing at La Gon­dola.

Ncube and the rich busi­ness­man have been at each other’s throats af­ter the lat­ter said he was not as funny as Trevor Noah and was in the league of Mukadota, Paraf­fin and Mu­tirowafanza. Chivayo fur­ther said while Ncube strug­gles to get peo­ple to pay $2, he could pay his fans $100 each to at­tend any of his shows.

Apart from roast­ing his neme­sis, Ncube gave a grand per­for­mance at most of his shows in Bu­l­awayo. His re­cy­cled jokes were mainly cen­tred on the highs and lows of be­ing Shona and Nde­bele, the prob­lems be­dev­illing Air Zim­babwe and rape-ac­cused Prophet Ma­gaya.
