In the top five list, Njugush is joined by singer Samidoh, Betty Kyallo, 2019 Global Teacher Prize winner Peter Tabichi and activist and founder of Ukweli Party Boniface Mwangi. Njugush becomes the third person to clinch the top spot after veteran award-winning comedian Daniel Ndambuki “Churchill” in 2016 and Dr. Darshan Chandaria in 2018. 

Njugush who had his fair share of struggles as he rose to the top has managed to garner a huge following on social media through his rib-cracking online video clips. The funnyman does his skits with his wife Celestine Ndinda widely known as Wakavinye. Njugush used to act in the TV series drama Real Househelps of Kawangware.

Over the weekend, the couple held a sold-out comedy event dubbed Through Thick and Thin where the two joked about their life struggles as they rose to the top as well as their day to day lives.
