Nigerian comedian & musician – Julius ‘The Genuis’ Agwu has been honoured by the Tupac Foundation in Atlanta. He was presented with an autobiography of Tupac Shakur titled ‘Tupac Shakur Legacy’ autographed by Tupac’s mum, Afeni Shakur. The book, Tupac Shakur Legacy features removable reproductions of handwritten, lyrics, notebook pages and other personal memorabilia plus Tupac Shakur Speaks, a 60minutes CD featuring rare interviews with Tupac. It was written by Jamal Joseph.
Julius Agwu said; ‘I feel very excited and elated for this recognition. And most importantly, it is an inspiration for most of us who are in the business of entertainment because even for the fact the guy’s life was cut short at a very early stage, we know he has left a very indelible mark on the sand of time.’ Agwu will be hosting his annual ‘Crack Ya Ribs Comedy’ show in London on August 26, 2012. The event will feature performances from D’Prince, Seyi Law, Dj Abass, FunnyBone, Senator, MC Shakara and Funny Face from Ghana.
