Godfather of Kenyan comedy Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki has been the talk of the town of late after quite a number of comedians came out to expose his management of mistreating them.
It started with comedian Zeddy, who exposed Creative director Victor Ber and director J Blessing for frustrating comedians leading them into depression.

I’ve seen a lot of stories happening, watu wanaongea sana unashindwa where do you start. I like keeping and staying positive.
First of all in everything we do it’s a journey. It has taken me 20 years now ndio tufanye hizi majourney series and we’re not stopping. Coronavirus has taught us a lot…kumbe company inaeza fungwa ukaanzisha kitu ingine. In the past we had like 10 cameras on me, we have a crew of 150 people but right now, with even a phone camera you can become media. And that’s what I tell young people especially those who are coming up and they get carried na hii mambo ya social media and its amazing because 10 years ago it was not this way, you had to audition and it was crazy.
Churchill urged comedians and other artistes, in general, to make use of social media instead of complaining during this Covid-19 Pandemic.
You start social media and become media. Now we’re not in that era ulikuwa unasema ‘mtu amenikazia kuwa kwa stage, ooh sasa huyu hanitakii’ we did time for you tukamaliza, now you’re a brand. All you need is great content and change social media and become media yourself. People follow content and where we’re going content will be key. You don’t have to be on TV or radio and can pay yourself all the money you want and life is beautiful because time has already been done for you now you’re working for an already established platform. Go ahead and become a star that you’ve always wanted to be.
