Wednesday, 13th October 2021

If Covid-19 has favoured anyone in Ghana, it is a Ghanaian comedian known as Clemento Suarez. During the lock down, he was the main source of entertaiment to Ghanaians. He was on several screens and online with his rib cracking comedies. Even though he had been in the system since 2011, he actually came into the public line in 2019 and was blown away during the lock down in 2020.

His 5 minute comedy tittled Corona ABC was both educative and entertaining during the peak of the pandemic. He portrayed as a pupil called Timothy and was being questioned by a lady why he was going to school when there was a lock down. Clemento replied that he was the bell boy and if he doesn't report, someone will steal the school bell. The teacher then asked him to define covid-19 using the alphabets. Suarez (Timothy) brilliantly defined covid-19 using the alphabets covering hand hygiene, social distancing, healthy eating amongst others.
