Popular entertainer, comedian Thomas Sipalo alias DIFFIKOTI has joined politics and has joined the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND).
Sipalo popularly known by his stage name ‘professor Difikoti’ joined politics today (Friday) at the UPND headquarters.
Sipalo is from the comedy duo ‘Bkiloni and Difikoti’.
It seems partisan politics are taking their toll on clowns DIffikoti and Bikiloni.
The famous duo who took Zambian comedy to previously unimagined heights are said to be losing ground
Thomas Sipalo and Levy Ngoma’s times as the kings of comedy exciting times have passed on following the change of government from the Movement for multi-party democracy MMD to the patriotic front.
Prior to the elections the vernacular oriented comedians were engaged by the MMD to de campaign the current ruling party by ridiculing the inconsistent of the PF leadership.
Once regarded as the most paid local artists, Difkoti and Bikiloni are now
The comedians, once regarded as the most paid local artists, have lost the market as most corporate and government functions are being handled by Victor Chaushi famously known as KABOVA, leaving the famous BIKILONI AND DIFFIKOTI to settle for low budget functions.
It is becoming less common to see Difikoti and Bikiloni in many commercial adverts nowadays.
