Last year, Cassper Nyovest accused Mayengani of stealing his “trademarked” concept. Benny was also threatened with legal action surrounding the trademark rights of Fill Up. However, an independent investigation by TshisaLIVE found that Cassper did not own the trademark and could not take legal action against him at the time

This comes after Benny advertised his Fill Up Giyani Stadium concert using the hashtag made popular by Cassper.

Despite all the drama, Tsonga musician continued to fulfill his dream by filling up the 20000-seater Giyani Stadium, topping the venue’s capacity with 4000 extra fans.

This year April, Benny Mayengani continues to use the phrase and plans to fill up the 46, 000 seater Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane, Limpopo.

Benny plans to fill up Peter Mokaba Stadium with the help from Zodwa Wabantu, Vuyelwa, Mashabela, DJ Tira and Winnie Mashaba.

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 the panel and then we’ll have a real bonfire.”

ALSO READ: Kings & Queens Of Comedy Show Kicks Off

Queen of Zulu Comedy, Celeste Ntuli, has always been a joker, so it was no surprise when she decided to pursue comedy as a career. Guaranteed to have audiences in stitches, Celeste’s straight forward, bold and outspoken traits have fans coming back for more.

The royal court of SA comedy giants includes Angel Campey, Carvin Goldstone, Muthu Murugan, Ndumiso Lindi, Riaad Moosa, Schalk Bezuidenhout, Tumi Morake and the unmatchable team of Conrad Koch and Chester Missing, with some new faces joining the Kings & Queens of Comedy family – Thenjiwe Moseley, Mo Vawda and Lindy Johnson. And no Kings & Queens of Comedy event in Durban would be the same without its royal host, Darren Maule.

These comedy heavyweights have shined their comical armour and sharpened their witty swords and are ready to kick off the 2019 comedy calendar as they take hilarity to the next level.

Celebrating seven years of Kings & Queens of Comedy, Blu Blood created the brand in 2012 in Johannesburg and it has since grown to be one of the leading comedy brands in South Africa, promoting and showcasing local talent from around the country.

The show is rated PG16. Tickets from R200 are available from Computicket outlets and online.

Another hilarious production brought to you by Blu Blood. For more information, visit www.blublood.com.

About the comedians:

The vibrant and immensely talented trailblazer, Angel Campey, brings her brand of observational humour to the stage. Fast-becoming a leading voice in SA comedy, Angel’s comedy has been dubbed as comedy for the discerning young South African is nothing short of hilarious.

Carvin Goldstone’s clean honest comedy has won him audiences all over the country and it’s not hard to see why he is a firm favourite on the stage as he explores politics, family and life as a coloured person in South Africa.

Queen of Zulu Comedy, Celeste Ntuli, has always been a joker, so it was no surprise when she decided to pursue comedy as a career. Guaranteed to have audiences in stitches, Celeste’s straight forward, bold and outspoken traits have fans coming back for more.

South Africa’s most vocal and politically-opinionated puppet, Chester Missing, accompanied by his faithful sidekick, Conrad Koch, are synonymous for their often outrageous, punch-packing, controversial, funny and frank views on the current South African state of affairs.

Having made a name for himself over the past two decades, Darren Maule’s humour, intelligent banter and storytelling and raucous laughter has made him a household name across Durban, which is why he returns to centre stage as the host of this royal affair.

Known as the ‘King of Indian Comedy’, Muthu Murugan has been wowing audiences for many years. Sharp-tongued and witty, Muthu will bring some Durban flavour to Johannesburg.

Ndumiso Lindi, the gentleman of South African comedy, otherwise known as Roosta, effortlessly blends new-age style with old-school traditions. His deep voice, soul-warming smile, booming laughter, original content and seamless delivery makes for a comedy act that is outstanding and soulfully South African.

As an award-winning comedian, actor, writer and presenter, Riaad Moosa is one of South Africa’s most popular and acclaimed funny men – and he happens to be a qualified medical doctor too. He certainly seems to have the remedy for the nation’s ills – a healthy dose of laughter, straight up – and hold the aspirin.

Schalk Bezuidenhout, the talent as sweet as mother’s milk and with a skop as powerful as brandy, is not your run-of-the-mill comedian. His refreshing approach to comedy explores his conservative upbringing and his current liberal outlook on life.

With a comedy career spanning over 12 years and numerous outstanding credentials under her belt, including author, columnist and TV host, Tumi Morake continues to be a formidable force in the comedy industry. Her edgy and unpredictable brand of comedy has wowed audiences around the globe, in particular with her recent comedy special on Netflix.

Minnie Dlamini-Jones Sun Met host

Minnie Dlamini-Jones will co-host the Sun Met horseracing event alongside Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt at Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town on Saturday.

ALSO READ: 2019 Sun Met Theme Has Been Announced

Speaking to IOL about her hosting the event last year, Dlamini said it was the best Met in her five years of attending the event.

Bolt is the sponsor’s chief entertainment officer and Dlamini only had good things to say regarding the Olympian, adding that unlike most international stars booked for South African gigs, Bolt embraced the spirit of Africa and the Met.

G.H Mumm became the official alcohol for the Met three years ago and Dlamini says getting them on board with Bolt as the co-emcee had elevated the event.

Regarding Bolt, Dlamini said: “He’s very cool and not standoffish”, adding he was an “open person and a joy to work with”.

Since becoming a G.H. Mumm ambassador, Dlamini has had numerous experiences with the brand.

Two of the opportunities came when she took a trip to Paris, France in September. Dlamini and Bolt drank champagne in zero gravity where G.H Mumm manufactured a special bottle that could be popped in zero gravity.

She also visited the French brand’s wine farm with the trip coincided with her one-year anniversary with her husband Quinton Jones, where Dlamini was able to celebrate the special day with her husband in the capital.

Dlamini said she was looking forward to seeing how race-day goers interpreted the “Precious Metals“ theme.

While she was excited about want designer Gert-Johan Coetzee would be making for her, she was looking forward to seeing K Naomi – if she does attend.
