Churchill breaths fire, rebukes Kenyans blaming him for comedian’s misfortunes

Churchill Show host Daniel “Churchill” Ndambuki has rebuked Kenyans who blame him for the comedians’ woes.

Addressing mourners in the burial of the late Ben Maurice Omondi, popularly known as Othuol Othuol, the laugh industry director said that he started the Churchill Show with the aim of realizing opportunities among talents and not oppressing them.

Ndambuki previously attracted backlash from his fans when Churchill comedians are faced with depression or misfortunes.

He said that the wrath should be directed to the government and not him.

Churchill noted that he is just a common Kenyan who had a small dream and whose ambition was to change the lives of as many Kenyans as possible by helping them realize their dreams.

He added that the government had shown less effort in nurturing and supporting talented young Kenyans.

The comedian stated that the reason Kenyans bash Churchill Show each time something happens to the comedians is that it’s the only platform that they get to be seen, yet the government should be doing a lot to the comedians and added that he is neither the government nor has he ever been funded by the government.

Ndambuki also urged the comedians to make use of the social media platforms to build their brands and let their content known as well as earning a living.

Churchill has a number of times found himself on the receiving end with Kenyans recently accusing him of ‘misusing’ comedians resulting in depression that leads to their death.

In July, Female Churchill Show comedian Zeddy alleged that comedians in the Show only get paid if their art is aired on TV.

According to Zeddy, some comedians perform for months, but their shows never get aired, despite the expenses they incur trying to get on TV, which has thrown many into depression.

Othuol Othuol died on Sunday last week after a long battle with pulmonary Tuberculosis and brain Tumor.

He was buried in Ndere village, Siaya County, today, on Saturday, October 24, 2020.
