TAPIWA Makaza a.k.a. Taap the Guy made history last week when he won the title of Last Comic Standing at ‘Free Your Mind’.
The 15-year-old happy-go-lucky guy says he had not planned on performing that evening. “I was told I was too young to perform but I guess they changed their minds,” Makaza says.
The teenager has always known he was humorous, but never thought of performing until three months ago when a friend urged him to try to make an appearance at ‘Free Your Mind’.
