Johannesburg, 13 February 2019: Did you hear the one about the lady with the blue hair, the funny-guy and the man with the pineapple hairstyle who walked into a Roast? They made toast….of¬†AKA! Get ready for the¬†Comedy Central Roast of AKA in partnership with Showmax,¬†coming to¬†The Teatro¬†atMontecasino¬†on¬†21 February 2019.

AHEE! Get ready for reality with the “Tsonga King”,¬†Papa Penny¬†who plans to strip¬†AKA¬†to bare bones in the upcoming¬†Comedy Central Roast of AKA. The “bloke who can’t be broke”,¬†Big Papa Penny¬†will certainly bring raw rhythm to the show when he joins the crew of Roasters to take on rap-king¬†AKA. A New York hip boss and legend on the film and music scene in South Africa, he has broken boundaries with his original Tsonga disco/Shangaan electro music. A Penny for your thoughts?

Commented¬†Papa Penny, “I’ve had my fair share of being roasted on social media in the past which makes me more than ready to be on the¬†Comedy Central Roast¬†panel. I will be bringing my Tsonga bling and flair to set the stage on fire. Here I come AKA.”

Always a delight on stage,¬†Joey Rasdien¬†is welcomed as a big name on the SA stage to burn¬†AKA¬†– so expect flames of glory. As an exceptional comic he will surely “goat-tease” the rap-boss and make bunny-chow out of him.¬†Joey¬†is well known and has a lot to give when it comes to the stoking of¬†AKA¬†in this next Big Roast from¬†Comedy Central¬†and¬†Showmax.

Joey Rasdien¬†added, “For the past few years¬†Comedy Central¬†has been instrumental in growing our industry, so to be able to get the opportunity to be on a Roast panel, roasting AKA is huge. I’m super excited. To AKA I say……. you went to Holy Cross Convent! Shame, that’s got to hurt. That’s tough.¬† Maybe I can bring Bonang and Cassper Nyovest to join on the panel and then we’ll have a real bonfire.”

Needless to say¬†Moonchild¬†Sanelly,¬†with her patented blue hair,¬†will bring plenty of¬†heat¬†and¬†sassy¬†vibe to the party!¬†Nothing innocent about this “child”! With 12 years in the¬†music industry, this¬†exhibitionist can¬†get down and dirty¬†with¬†no inhibitions when it comes to expressing herself vocally and physically. The Ghetto-funk and¬†Gqom singer has even been recognised by the great¬†Beyonc√©¬†on her track with¬†DJ¬†Maphorisa. Will she have the thrust to strip AKA down to the bones¬†and expose the naked truth?

Concluded¬†Moonchild Sanelly: “The Roast of AKA will be a comfortable space for me because I have faced a lot of criticism in my career, and I can take it. I would love to think that it lightens the load of rumours about celebrities because if people can see you laugh at yourself then they don’t have the power to believe that making fun of you hurts you.”

Let’s get this Roast on, sit back and enjoy the fire as¬†Comedy Central¬†and¬†Showmax¬†bring you the new panelists joining¬†Francois Van Coke, Mark Fish¬†and¬†Nina Hastie.
