Goodbye to youth days!
On 11 May 1986 a bouncing baby boy named Ntando Moyo (before the tag Van existed in between his initials) was born at Mpilo Hospital in Bulawayo.
His parents were blessed by giving life to a being celebrated as the funniest ace man in Bulawayo.
That being has won numerous awards for his standup comedy exploits.
Funny enough, it was never his dream of becoming a comedian, he grew up wishing to be a lawyer.
“When growing up, I never saw myself becoming a comedian. This madness (comedy) came up in 2012. This is the same year that saw me dropping out of the University of South Africa (UNISA) where I was studying towards a degree in Law.
“Basically, I can say unemployment forced me to take up the comedy path,” said Ntando Van Moyo.
In life we don’t choose for ourselves, God gives the green light to our wishes and directs one to his rightful path, something that the comedian can concur with.
“This year I said goodbye to being a youth and I was afraid of growing up this much, but it’s beautiful and amazing.
“I am celebrating all my achievements especially as a comedian. I have overcome a lot of obstacles, but God has kept me this far. I am also looking forward to having a brighter future in his name,” said Ntando Van Moyo.
At 35, he faced his fears and made himself a birthday present of a new hairstyle.
“Some people have labelled my hairstyle as a tennis ball but I don’t mind because I started rocking this style way back, this was the present I gave myself.
“Some say that as I turn 35 I must do away with childish things, they must go tell that to Kofi Olomide (Congolese rhumba musician), ever since I was young watching Afro Beat, he has maintained the same tinted hair cut to date,” said Ntando Van Moyo.
The comedian will be hosting a Chill Out session at his household in Cowdray Park on 15 May with Covid-19 rules and regulations adhered to.
