Talent show hopeful has mad madcap dad who campaigned to prevent Malawians from parping in public
THE father of Britain’s Got Talent hopeful Daliso Chaponda is a madcap Malawian politician who wants to ban farting in public.
Comedian Daliso, 37, got the Golden Buzzer from Amanda Holden on Saturday night after a string of gags about being single and the financial crisis.
But viewers were unaware that his father George, 74, tried to outlaw breaking wind.
The former Justice Minister, who met Madonna in 2010, also suggested officials be trained to deal with those parping as a way of promoting “public decency”.
Speaking about the bill in 2011, he asked: “Would you like to see people farting in public anywhere?
“Just go to the toilet when you feel like farting.
“Nature can be controlled.
“It becomes a nuisance if people fart anywhere.”
George also claimed that the increase in breaking wind was down to Malawi embracing multi-party politics.

He added: “It was not there during the time of dictatorship because people were afraid of the consequences.”
But Malawi’s solicitor general told George the bill was about air pollution, not flatulence.
His son Daliso, who moved to the UK ten years ago and lives in Manchester, caused less of a stink on BGT as he poked fun at life in Britain.
He said: “I heard a lot of people talking about the financial crisis.
“I’m from Africa — what are you talking about?
“You’ll have a financial crisis when this chav will have to walk five miles a day to get a bottle of WKD blue.”
