In conversation with The Queen of Zulu comedy Celeste Ntuli

702's Azania Mosaka spent time with South African female comedian Celeste Ntuli talking about her journey into the industry and her upcoming show "Black Tax".

Ntuli also known as The Queen of Zulu Comedy is also a soapie starlet, known as Siphokazi Zungu on Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya.

Speaking to Azania, Ntuli recalls how she was shocked to hear the news of the terror attack in Nice while she was in France on holiday. She says she had intended to go to Nice to attend Bastille day events but had had an unexpected change in her plans.

About 84 people were killed when a 19 ton cargo truck was deliberately driven into crowds celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

I only realised when they were talking about it the next day, and I was shocked thinking I was supposed to be there

Celeste Ntuli, Comedian

Ntuli says her comedy is mostly about what she observes, and she doesn't make jokes about rape.

Her one woman comedy show "Black Tax" relates to the state of South Africa's politics and the economy. She talks everything from yellow bones to KFC buckets.
