Ghetto’s comedy king
There’s never a dull moment when he’s around. Born Batunge Ngube in Maitengwe 32 years ago, the comedian later to be known as Tama Brown has been cracking ribs since his days at Monarch Primary School.
A popular figure in Francistown, particularly in the city’s Monarch location where he resides, Ngube generously gives an overdose of stand up comedy on the streets, at football grounds and drinking spots.
This has endeared him to the ordinary man on the street. Also known for his Tama Brown and Tama Jasane Ikalanga flicks, the award winning comic is a household name in the second city and much of the North East.
His crude comedy has won him slots on the country’s most popular dramas like Ntwakgolo and One Love One Life.
In this interview Voice Reporter Kabelo Dipholo uncovers the Maitengwe comic, to find out what really makes him tick.
Q. You are a very popular figure in Kasi but very few people know who this funny man is and what he’s really about. Kindly share with our readers, who exactly is Tama Brown?
A. This hunk is from a village called Maitengwe.
