The year 2020 has been described as many things by different people, most of them not positive. However, some entertainers in the industry made the year worth its while.
One aspect of the industry that cannot be ignored is comedy and a number of comedians entertained Nigerians during the year.
Legit.ng recently organised a poll for its readers to select their comedian of the year and they also had the chance to explain their choice.
The comedians that were listed in the poll included AY Makun, Basketmouth, Bovi and Ali Baba.
Ali Baba is no doubt a veteran in the industry and he also paved the way for many young ones to pursue their talents of telling jokes. The funny man now hosts high class events especially for politicians in the country.
Bovi is also another comedian who has made his mark in the industry. His social media presence has been greatly felt by his fans as his funny captions leave them reeling.
Basketmouth on the other hand is another funny man in the industry whose impact has been greatly felt. He recently branched out into music and his album, Yabasi, has received accolades from fans.
AY Makun is another funny man on the list. Some people have described him as more of a businessman than a comedian but that hasn’t stopped him from doing his thing.

In other music-related news, Legit.ng earlier reported on the top 20 Nigerian songs that were street anthems in the year 2020. Some of the songs that made the list are Bad Influence by Omah Lay, Smile by Wizkid, Fem by Davido and others.
The Nigerian music industry like every other sector was no doubt badly hit in the year 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and other issues that troubled the country.
However, it also seemed to be a year of great discovery in the music industry owing to the number of break out stars that fans were blessed with as well as beautiful music from other top artistes.
