KAMPALA – Times are hard for the creative industry world over, theatres and show grounds have been closed for months. Yet for Ugandan comedy duo Madrat and Chiko, things have not been as bad.
In fact, as many entertainers were busy waiting for government aid, the duo was innovating, they came up with an initiative, House Quiz Comedy where they host other comedians and entertainers to discuss quite a number of topics inside the house.
The duo has now added some shillings to their bank account after bagging a multi-million deal with Tecno Mobile.
As Tecno Mobile celebrates its 12th anniversary, Uganda’s comic duo Madrat & Chiko are to eat big in this campaign dubbed Tecno At 12years after the company unveiled them as the brand ambassadors for the phone company.
The duo is championing a campaign that will run between 1st to 31st August where one can purchase any Tecno phone at a discounted price and stand a chance to win prizes.
These comedians are not new in playing ambassadorial roles as they have done the same for Snow Paints, World Star Betting among other brands
Seven years ago, performing to a small group at a local bar in Mukono, this duo started their comedy journey, rising to stardom and earning their first gig at Waikiki bar in 2015. Chiko, real names Frank Mubiru and Mad Rat’s real names Dickson Lubega have worked their way on the comedy scene to date being one of the top sought after comedians in the country.
