The inaugural gala night for President Muhammad Buhari is currently holding at Abuja.
One of the performers on the night was comedian Akpororo, who was introduced to come and make the crowd “laugh and laugh and laugh.”
That was not to be the case however, and many took to Twitter to criticize his performance.
Viewers had criticized him for recycling old jokes, while others said he wasn’t up to the task of performing at such a grand event.
Akpororo is way funnier than the bland performance he just put up minutes ago I refuse to believe he was a wrong choice

Apparently the night was rough for Akpororo. Happens to the best of us. He will learn from it and can go on to better. — Abiola Kazeem (@biolakazeem) May 29, 2015

Akpororo’s performance thou. He himself found out he wasn’t funny enough for this kinda crowd. Repeated jokes too much!

Watching the inaugural gala night & wondering whoever paid Akpororo to come and disgrace himself and embarrass the stand up comedian trade?
