Mutabaruka is known for touching on themes that include politics, culture, Black liberation, social oppression, discrimination, poverty, racism, sexism, and religion, but he is also known for being full of life and big laughs, which he plans to bring to the stage this Saturday.
Comedy Tain is designed to bring culture and comedy together for a night of fun and a fusion of the arts where Bahamian artists could take the stage along with their Caribbean counterparts. Mutabaruka and Yasus Afari will be joined by Professor Nuts, Dufton Shepherd, Michael “Stringbean” Nicholson, Yanet Cambell, Princess Abdiel, Zee the Flame Goddess, and Bahamian cultural band Ubuntu.
Nubian Kween entertainment has been hosting quality entertainment events for the entire family for the past eight years and stands by the motto: “We take your fun seriously”.
