Churchill and Trevor Noah

Celebrated Kenyan comedian Churchill left for South Africa on Friday for two mega concerts that will see him share the stage with South African American rib cracker Trevor Noah.

And on Saturday, the Kenyan star hosted hundreds of fans to the first concert in Johannesburg ahead of next weekend’s show that will feature a number of other seasoned continental comedians.

Trevor Noah, who has been having ratings issues with the Daily Show since he took over from Jon Stewart early this year, will be in Johannesburg with the Churchill Live star for the weekend concert. The two will also attend a BET ceremony.
