Just days after the sad passing on of the famous fanny man Othuol Othuol, worrying details have now emerged of what is troubling the comedians and ailing the industry.
Talking in the video dubbed “Othuol Othuol’s Journey” the Kenyan father of comedy, and owner of Churchill show Daniel Ndambuki divulged the root cause of the problems.
In his talk, Churchill believe that a number of the young and upcoming comedians lack the ability to properly manage their hard-earned money and fame, hence busy chasing the social media lifestyle.
They then attract a number of good and bad friends from the social circle, and strive so much to impress them by all means, once they enter the industry, start making a name and some good money.
This coupled with the fact that the comedy industry has no definite monthly salary, plus the evolving nature of the comedy hence need for constant creativity every single day to remain relevant, resulting in unreliability as a challenge.
“One of the biggest challenge in the entertainment industry is the social media. So you have a big name, have a big following and you have to impress people every single day. In order to remain relevant. But sometimes, it gets out of hand,” Churchill admitted.
He however believes that he gave the deceased comedian a chance and a platform to showcase and grow his talent to greater heights, a thing that many don’t really concur with due to recent trolls and talks by comedians in the wake of many deaths hitting the industry recently.
The sad bid is that majority of friends, colleagues, and family who shared the journey of life with the deceased admitted he was very stubborn, with bad drinking habits that might have cost him his life.
