Pablo is nominated for the competition along with other comedians from all over the world including fellow countryman Patrick Idringi aka Salvador.

“My call to you is to watch the 3 minute video via the link (http://indi.com/7fz6m), LIKE IT and SHARE IT. You will have voted for yours truly by just doing that. If we managed to beat Comoros, we can beat the world at this…,” he added.
Meanwhile, this is the second time Pablo and Salvador are facing off in an international competition.
