Lloyd ventures to new comedy genre

By: Josephine Mbangula

We have seen him as a stand-up comedian, we have heard and LOL to his Mad Lips clips. All these forms of making his fans laugh but alas, this is not how far he can stretch your lungs from humour.

The award-winning Derriek Lloyd Sakaria, popular on stage as Lloyd Jefferson has for a while moving from his popularly known stand up comedy to working with puppets from social media platforms. Lloyd who is all about keeping the ball rolling when it comes to creativity says bemoaned the financial challenges faced by comedians in Namibia in their quest to earn a living. With a new name for his persona of Garuxab die laste hond, faint-hearted is all about exploring new cult full-timesharing Namibia through the humourful eyes of the dog.

According to Lloyd, a career in comedy is not for the faint hearted.

“If you start comedy as your full time career and you do not have a financial support system, it is going to draw you back and you are going to feel like you are not making enough to continue it as a career, ” he said.

Lloyd further said there is not much appetite from corporates or investors to fund comedy.

“If I can get someone who believes in me and that can go through the storms with me, the sky would be the limit for me,” he said.
