Britain’s Got Talent and Amanda Holden’s golden buzzer act comedian Daliso Chaponda has announced his debut stand up tour for 2018 entitled ‘What The African Said…’. The Malawian born stand up was a stand out star from this year’s show, capturing the nations hearts and garnering over 8 million Facebook views and 9 million on Youtube. The ‘What The African Said…’ tour takes in 31 dates across the UK starting on 8TH February at Nottingham’s Glee Club and culminating on 27th April at Edinburgh’s Queens Hall. Daliso has also just been confirmed for his own Radio 4 series entitled Daliso Chaponda: Citizen Of Nowhere.

A few years ago he did his first ever comedy show in Malawi, which became a massive success, and after that he started to be booked on big African shows. Then, just as he thought of moving back to Malawi and becoming the Malawi McIntyre, he did jokes about the Malawi President and his own father (who was the cabinet minister). This received a huge amount of media attention and the Malawi censorship board threatened to arrest him. This is not the only time his humour got him into trouble. Doing pro-homosexuality material in response to gay men being arrested and criticizing a Zimbabwean prophet got him a lot of hate mail! This made him realise that he wanted to keep doing edgy comedy material but in no way could he move back home to Malawi!
