TV cabbie drives viewers to laugh at Mali life"This taxi is no ordinary taxi," shouts the driver, allowing his customer a moment to settle in the back seat before propelling his cab down the streets of Bamako, talking a mile a minute.Mali's president is of course a regular customer.Mali does not record audience figures but public reaction appears overwhelmingly positive.Typical is TV repairman Modibo Haidara who watched "Taxi Tigui" with his neighbors, saying he fell about laughing over how well Koman and his co-stars brought "the traditions, the reality of Mali" to the small screen.Even rarer for a Malian show, "Taxi Tigui" was entirely financed through local sources, unlike previous local hits that relied on outside support, said Moussa Ouane, director of Mali's National Cinematography Centre (CNCM).
