Kody is a humourist and comedian Belgium, of Congolese origin, whose parents were diplomats, born on Schaerbeek Brussels region 23 January 1978 . Trained to make people laugh, the future humourist showed off his verbal wits in the playground. After several improvisation workshops, he started studying business (and finished) then later returned to his first love. He then encountered the Kings of Comedy, who offered him the first act in the Alexis show ‘I rêve a dream’. In true American stand-up style, the contract was carried out with panache and Kody acted as the undisputed host of the Kings of Comedy shows, while preparing his own one-man show.

Kody has also made a home for himself on the radio, where every Sunday he hosts, along with other humourists from the Kings of Comedy and Jean-Jacques Brunin, the ‘Enfants de Chœur’ on the VivaCité radio station and on television through his appearances on the Grand Cactus sur La Deux, which attracted great attention.

A king of stand-up, Kody has a scathing way with words. He mixes charisma with cynicism with the precision of a surgeon and through talking about himself, his Congolese family, his professional experience, his day-to-day life which isn’t so day-to-day after all, he takes his audience into the world of glamorous humour.

In 2017, he agreed to become the sponsor of Comequi.

Our objective

Since it was founded in 2008 and regardless of the safety situation in the DR Congo at the time, COMEQUI ASBL has been working towards its objective of providing rural populations around Lake Kivu and especially in the Minova region, with the resources they need to carry out sustainable development activities, in order to increase their income and improve their living conditions.

Our resources

All projects managed by COMEQUI:

  • Aim to become autonomous and self-financing within 3 years.

  • Have their operating expenses paid entirely by its members, who are all volunteers.

Our actions

In order to achieve its objective, COMEQUI:

  • Works to improve coffee plantation production, by helping, supervising and training coffee growers

  • Encourages the creation of cooperatives to bring together stakeholders in the area

  • Works to promote agriculture that meets fair trade and organic standards.

  • Supports income-generating activities.

  • Invests in the social and educational training of local stakeholders (schools and rural associations)
