News:Comic Pastor Comments On Why He Left Bus Stop TV. Dismisses Rumours That He Left Over Kansiime's Show
Comedian Prosper Ngomashi, popularly known as Comic Pastor, has left Bus Stop TV in circumstances that have been linked to Anne Kansiime’s show in Harare. The Comic Pastor worked with producer and co-founder Lucky Aaron and two other comedians Sharon Chideu (Maggie) and Samantha Kureya (Gonyeti) in the team that is well known for its comic skits on social media.
Sources interviewed by the Herald said that Ngomashi had secretly arranged to perform alone at the Kansiime show,
He had separate agreement with one of the promoters but it failed to go according to the plan after the other Bus Stop TV members complained and he failed to perform while Gonyeti was given a slot. He felt betrayed and left the group.
However Ngomashi said he had not left because of any conflict,
We had a very cordial working relationship as a team at Bus Stop, but it’s just that I have decided to take a break from skits. I am going to concentrate on stand-up comedy. They can go ahead without my contribution because they are an institution. We are comedians and we need to be innovative and come up with new appealing ideas.
Aaron confirmed Ngomashi’s exit,
I just heard that he had separate arrangements with the promoter (of Kansiime show) to perform at the show but he failed, so we are not sure what then happened. He just communicated to me that he was no longer interested in Bus Stop TV. It is now a week after his departure and we are still looking for a replacement.
Ngomashi joined the crew following the exit of comic duo Admire Kuzhangaira (Bhutisi) and Rolland Lunga (Boss Kedha) from the team that was then known as P.O Box. The two had a conflict with Aaron forcing them to start their own project named P.o. Box Reloaded.
