The beautiful city of London is currently agog as Julius ‘De Genius’ Agwu, is set to host another edition of his annual mind blowing comedy show, Crack Ya Ribs.

The show, according to Richie John Onaiwu, CEO of RichieRich Entertainment UK, who oversaw it, started at exactly 7pm.Even though the doors would were opened from 6pm.
He had advised everyone in London for summer to attend the talk-of-the-town show because “life is indeed what you make it. Therefore, you must nourish yourself with spontaneous laughter and uncontrollable giggles…”
Commenting on the show on the eve, Julius, the pioneer of ‘musicomedy’, a combination of music and comedy, added that “the evening promises to be unforgettable. Anyone who misses it is going to be missing a lot. As a matter of fact, we have loads and loads of surprises lined up for all those coming. And I am using this medium to specially invite everyone.”
Agwu, from Choba, Rivers State, it would be recalled, was among the first set of entertainment practitioners to export Nigerian comedy to London. And for over a decade now, he’s been doing that without fail. A tradition, he told us, will be sustained for as long as the Lord permits.
