As the revolution of local comedy in Ghana is on the rise, leading PR & Media Relations agency, Avance Media in collaboration with Ace Incorporated have successfully launched Ghana’s first comedy & parody news website www.nogokpo.com in its pursuit to boost the rapidly growing industry in the country.
The platform which has also seen endorsement from local comedians, will evolve around comedians highlighting their works, lifestyle & accomplishments.
It’s parody segment has also been strategically positioned to create humorous satirical news articles with incisive humour and sarcasm on the political and social scenario of Ghana vis-a-vis the Ghanaian and World’s pop culture spectrum to keep readers overdosed with laughter and crying.
Other features and pursuits of the blog include; Trolls, Troll Battles, Comedy Forum, Event update, Skit premiers, Interview, Award shows, etc
The platform is also gearing to hire young and creative writers who want a platform to horn their skills through writing.
In an interaction with Felix G, the Co-founder and Editor-at-Large of the blog, he decries the nonexistence of comedy dedicated blogs for the comedy industry and labels it as unsound and undesirable. Nogokpo.com is here to address that snag. He also stated that the media is now too saturated with unabated depressing news and this project is borne to turn attention from them.
Also set to host series of collaborations with international organisations to boost the local industry, the blog will incorporate an online booking for local comedians.
Hosting Corporate Comedy Show is another package in the offing. This will feature local comedians at corporate events to boost their relationship with the corporate world and how they can take their career to the next level.
The project is currently being incubated at Ghana’s first creative arts confederate, TANOE Hub in Accra.
