South Africa-based Zimbabwean comedian Baba Tencen has taken to Facebook to thank controversial businessman, Wicknell Chivayo for dangling R100 000 before him on Friday.
Chivayo on Friday posted on his Facebook page that he was looking for the comedian because he wanted to meet and have lunch with him. The businessman described Baba Tencen as “the only sensible comedian” in the country.
Baba Tencen who is famed for his Kuripwa Kugara clowning on Facebook took to the same platform to express his gratitude for the benevolent act.
“I cannot believe the good news. Thank you Sir Wicknell,” said Baba Tencent.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been trying to assist Sir Wicknell to contact me. Yes, we are in touch, we have talked to him and the pledge is for real… Ko inga ndakataura ndikati ini ndinoripwa kugara zvose nokuvata. Mondidii? [I have told you before that I get rewarded to merely sit and sleep, what will you do?],” said the comedian.
However, the offer comes a few weeks after the businessman exchanged a barrage of bitter words with famed comedian Carl Joshua Ncube. Chivayo might have taken the fracas a notch up to prove a point to Ncube, who suggested a “Wicknell roast” comedy session
