Channel 24 reported that it was the first time the award would offer nomination opportunities to comedians in the following countries, Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Angola and Lesotho.

Dillon Khan, the Vice-President of Comedy Central Africa presented Basketmouth with his trophy which gave him a feeling of pleasure as observed from his delighted expression while walking towards the stage.

He went on to social media, precisely his Instagram to express feelings of appreciation to the organizers when he wrote, "Thank you @comicschoice I truly appreciate this."

It was truly a deserving recognition for the jokester whose reputation reaches beyond the shores of Africa.
