“Stop calling fans your family.” Churchill gives powerful message during Othuol Othuol’s burial ceremony

Father of Kenyan comedy industry Daniel Ndambuki, today gave a very powerful speech to comedians who had attended the late Othuol Othuol’s burial ceremony in Siaya County.

Churchill was not happy to attend the burial of yet another one of his comedians who had passed away after going through depression and severe drug use and did not fail to speak his mind as he advised the talented group.

Churchill urged the attending comedians to focus on growing their brands as great content creators are in high demand in the market; instead of waiting for people to freely support them just because they are famous.

Churchill bluntly told the comedians that their fans will only consider them family if they are funny or good at their craft.

He further told them to keep their personal lives away from social media and focus on their craft.
In his speech, Churchill mentioned female comedian Zeddy who has previously gone public with the mistreatment comedians in the country are facing.

“Stop calling your fans family. Stop waking up every morning and telling them what you are eating and dressing. You have your life, your family, your parents and your children. Stop frustrating them. Those are fans, the moment you stop being funny they stop being your family. Grow your family, grow your brand and money will follow you. I don’t want to come to another function like this. I want to see millionaires on you,” said Churchill.

Aside from Churchill, several other comedians such as Jalang’o, MC Jessy, Teacher Wanjiku, Captain Otoyo, J Blessing, Sandra Dacha and Jemutai, were present in the late Othuol Othuol’s burial ceremony held today in Ambira village.

The late comedian passed away on October 11th while undergoing treatment at the Kenyatta National Hospital.

His friends and fans got to view the body yesterday at the KNT grounds.

The total estimate for Othuol’s burial ceremony amounted between ksh 700,000 to 1 million.
