The Godfather of Kenyan comedy Daniel Churchill Ndambuki left mourners praising him after giving comedians a tough lecture during Othuol Othuol’s funeral.
Churchill, who has nurtured many talents lost his cool while addressing the creatives.
‘…the reason you see why when anything bad happens they say Churchill comedian its because it is the only platform that they get to be seen on. Listen, I’m not the government! I am not funded by the government,’ he said.
Churchill said he started the show to give comedians a platform to build their brands because they aren’t employed on the show as many think. He encouraged them to diversify and not just depend on the show.
‘this is just a small dream of a young man who decided to give millions of talented young men and women a chance to be on stage and realise their dreams,’ he explained.
He went ahead to warn them to stop calling fans family.
‘My word to comedians and all creatives is to stop calling your fans family,’ he said.
‘STOP WAKING UP AND TELLING THEM WHAT YOU ARE EATING, WHAT YOU ARE DRESSING iN, AND KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A LIFE AND YOUR FAMILY IS YOUR MUM, YOUR SIBLING AND RELATIVES.’
