Tumi Morake won big at the 2016 Savanna Comics’ Choice Awardsheld at Teatro at Montecasino on Saturday (September 03) in Johannesburg, Gauteng.

The 34-year-old comedian and television personality, who is best known as South African’s “First Lady of Comedy”, was the female to be awarded the ‘Comic of the Year’.

I won!  I didn’t know how much I wanted it until I won it!  I wouldn’t have had the guts to do this, without the support of my fans.  And a big thank you to the comedy fraternity.  There are very few women playing in this game and the fact that these guys have taken notice, it means a lot!  Now the Queen shall truly reign!” Tumi said in a statement.

Tumi won the top award beating out Carvin Goldstone, Loyiso Gola, Mashabela Galane and Skhumba Hlophe.
