COMEDIAN | MC | INFLUENCER
SA’s Got Talent semi-finalist Aljoy Anesu Chikowo better known as, Chik Aljoy, a Zimbabwean ventriloquist based in South Africa, aims to become the face of African comedy.
Originally from Bulawayo, Chik Aljoy arrived in South Africa in 2011 when he was 15 to complete his studies and through watching YouTube videos online Aljoy taught himself ventriloquism and he combined it with comedy. Ventriloquism, or ventriloquy, is an act of stagecraft in which a person (a ventriloquist) changes his or her voice so that it appears that the voice is coming from elsewhere, usually a puppeteered dummy.
The 22-year-old stand-up comedian and his puppet Jackie The Monkey rose to fame through his participation in the South African talent show SA’s Got
Talent in 2016 and he managed to reach the semi-finals and since then he has not looked back.
