Sources said he had clandestinely arranged to perform alone at Kansiime show but when this failed he was elbowed out by other Bus Stop members. Bus Stop TV is said to have had another arrangement with show organisers which saw Gonyeti going on stage.
Co-founder Lucky Aaron confirmed Prosper Ngomashi’s exit saying they do not know why he left the group.
“I just heard that he had separate arrangements with the promoter (of Kansiime show) to perform at the show but he failed, so we are not sure what then happened. He just communicated to me that he was no longer interested in Bus Stop TV,” he told The Herald.
He said they were still to get his replacement. “It is now a week after his departure and we are still looking for a replacement.”
However Ngomashi said he had not left because of any conflict, but had just decided to take a break from doing skits.
“We had a very cordial working relationship as a team at Bus Stop, but it’s just that I have decided to take a break from skits. I am going to concentrate on stand-up comedy,” he said.
He said Bus Stop TV is an institution that can move forward without his contribution.
“They can go ahead without my contribution because they are an institution. We are comedians and we need to be innovative and come up with new appealing ideas,” he said.
Ngomashi joined the crew following the exit of comic duo Bhutisi and Khedha from the team that was then known as PO Box.-Online
