The President of the Republic of Gondwana

Globalization, immigration, French language, democracy, and corruption all subjects are good for this Nigerian humorist who fustigates the injustices of this world. Mamane, of his real name Mohamed Mustapha comes on stage completely by chance while he was postgraduate student of plant physiology in Montpellier. In his show «Mamane malmène les mots», he talks about the world view of a young African citizen of the world.

He wrote the five short films of the prevention campaign of the Ministry of Health «Moussa à Paris» broadcast on TV5 and the African television channels. In 2006, he joined the «le Jamel Comedy Club» and participated in the programs of Laurent Ruquier: «le Jamel Comedy Club» on France 2 and «On va s'gêner» on Europe 1.

He worked for radio Afrique no 1 on which he performed «Le Journal de Mamane» every morning, a satirical review of news. He is now a chronicler on RFI, where he brings sensation between comedy and bitter irony, in a daily chronicle «La République très très démocratique du Gondwana». At the end of 2016, he presented his movie «Bienvenu au Gondwana».

Mamane is also an actor in Africa, France and around the world, producer at the Gondwana city production.
