The comedian who had just arrived on stage, wowed patrons of the Glo Laffta Fest with his first jokes after exhibiting his singing prowess.
Before long, he was receiving a lot of boos and heckling from the crowd after he made a comment on how 'almost all Nigerians turned out to be armed robbers.'
There were shouts of "away" from the crowd who appeared to have been offended by the joke and felt it was a bit too harsh.
Foster Romanus had to cut short his act and leave the stage because the crowd were getting more and more incensed by his joke which had obviously gone bad.
