Rwandan comedian Ntarindwa Diogène, a.k.a Atome, on Sunday November 8, entertained hundreds of people at Kigali Serena hotel, leaving them cracking their lungs out.
Mr. Bean is the standup comedian compared to, only that Atome’s comedy is more educative, and focuses on Rwanda’s social-economic and political issues.
The show was supposed to start at 6 pm, but delayed for almost an hour. The lighting was immediately adjusted, and the audience started whispering, with all eyes glancing in different corners of the hall, eager to see Atome.
All a sudden, a strange comical tone emerged from the main entrance. The crowd became overexcited, screaming out his name frantically, as he dashed to the stage.
Clad in tight army green suit with a red shirt and snickers, Atome performed for almost two and half hours, and started imitating the way the Minister of Sports and Culture speaks in public, especially about football—the audience could not help it.
The hall was filled with screams, and the minister himself gave Atome a hug for pulling it off. The show was worthy every penny paid (Rfw10.000, and Rfw20.000 V.I.P). The show was well attended.
The First Lady Madam Jeannette Kagame, Prime Minister Bernard Makuza and Minister of Sports and Culture Joseph Habineza did not miss out.
Atome, 32, was recently hosted by Imbuto Foundation to perform, during their workshop at Serena.
