Tumi Morake makes comedy history

Tumi Morake has made history by becoming the first South African female comedian to win Comic of the Year at the Savanna Comic Choice Awards.

The veteran comedian whose career started while she was a university student, has learned how to own her space over the years.

In an interview with 702's John Robbie, she admitted to having to "beat up a few a men" along the way as the industry remained male-dominated.
