The show’s latest edition took place at Terra Kulture Arena in Victoria Island. The premise of Laughfest’s showcase is to raise money to fight against malaria in an engaging way.

The event, the organisers stated, is an extension of Joyful Joy’s mission to raise awareness about the disease and provide tests, malaria treatments, and long-lasting insecticide nets to the underprivileged.

Among others who were present at the event are Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Kunle Remi, Falz, Neo Akpofure, Beverly Naya, Lola OJ, Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun, Prince Nelson, and Dorcas Shola-Fapson.
