“People used to tell me am very hilarious nikiongea watu walikuwa wakisema mimi ni mfunny nitafute Churchill niaanza kutafuta na maauditions so in 2017 nilislide DM Facebook page ya Churchill show nikamwambia hey Churchill am an upcoming comedianne and am very funny I would like to be the first female comedian niambie auditions huwa ziko wapi i would like to come,” she revealed.

“So he replied hey Nasra come for the audions on Tuesday at Carnivo,so at the back of my mind I thought ni Churchill mwenyewe ndio amereply so mimi nikaambia watu Churchill amenionngelesha akaniambia Sunday nitakuwa kwa TV.”

Narrating the most embarrassing moment in her life, Nasra revealed that when she went for the audions, she wasn’t aware she would be asked to present her jokes because at the back of her mind she knew she was funny.

She went on to say that, when she was given the mic she was so blank and ended up presenting all Chipukeezy’s jokes and in the end she was thrown away.

“Nikaomba mathe fare ya kuenda audions so mimi huyo Tuesday nikaenda carnivo, wee sijawai ona kitu kama hiyo so  niko hapo kwa stage na a group of people wako hapo wananisikiliza mimi sikujua walikuwa wanasikiliza, nikaambiwa they want to hear my jokes na mimi sikuwa nayo, nikachukua mic nikaanza kupiga jokes za Chipukeezy zote then those people told me this si, not comedy we have heard all of this wewe enda utafute comedy alafu urudi” she narrated.

However, she never gave up she went for the second audition and the judges were impressed with her jokes.

” I auditioned a second time and got a job at a local media house. It took a while before I got into Churchill Show,” she said.
