Award-winning humorist Acapella was among other notable Nigerian comedians recently honored by the Mayor of Winnipeg, Scott Gillingham, in faraway Canada.
The ace entertainer and some of his colleagues had a roundtable chat with the popular preacher turned politician and his deputy, Markus Chambers, at City Hall, where issues affecting Nigerians were discussed.
Sources who were privileged to attend the meeting revealed that some of the issues focused on were the wellbeing and safety of Nigerian immigrants, especially in Winnipeg. Acapella, who is unarguably an ambassador of the goodwill of Nigeria to wherever he finds himself, was delighted to be hosted by Mr. Scott.
Mr. Scott Gillingham currently serves as the 44th mayor of Winnipeg, having been elected on October 26, 2022. Before being elected as mayor, he was the city councilor for St. James from 2014 to 2022. He was sworn in as the mayor of Winnipeg on November 1, 2022.
Other big comedy stars present at the roundtable include Ambassador Frances Agoda, better known as I Go Dye, Akpororo and others.
Born Benneth Chinedu Daniel, widely known as Acapella is one of the top comedy names in Nigeria and has made it a duty to fly the country’s name high wherever he goes.
