VIDEOS OF THE WEEK // DEATH BY THIS CHILD

I first saw this second video late last year as a clip on Instagram.  My friend Thembi tagged me on it and I died the minute I heard Emmanuella, the kid making funny faces.  How is it possible for a human to posess this much charisma at such a young age? And a full understanding of her craft?  I came across a longer version of the video this week and decided to follow the trail to its origins.  It turns out it’s one of many skits by Nigerian comedian Mark Angel, who plays the kid’s uncle in the first video. I fucking can’t! The humour is so damn fresh and so African! It reminded me of Kansiime Anne’s videos (below) which are equally hilarious. That Wi-Fi joke though 🙂
