Comedian Othuol Othuol will be buried at his ancestral home in Alego, Siaya county, later this month.
The 31-year-old died on Sunday after a battle with brain tumour. He died begging for help.
After news broke out that Othuol was no more, local celebs took to social media to mourn him and Jalang’o’s message read,
God above everything….REST IN PEACE. Show stopper…Heaven needed a laugh and God chose you today! Othuol Othuol.
Comedian Mammito wrote,
‘I remember how we used to go to Churchill on the roadshows together Kwa gari will make jokes Hadi tufike … making internal jokes that no one understood but sisi wenye tulikua Kwa lorry “our favourite part was tukitoanisha dancers ikiwa climax” that joke never got old. Nakunitetea nikiamka late , helping each other create jokes before twende Kwa meza…i am so sad …RIP BRO.’
Well, a screenshot between Othuol and a fellow comedian before his death has surfaced and Kenyans aren’t happy. They took to social media to criticise the comedian for ignoring Othuol’s cries.
Kenyans have called out celebs for being hypocrites and deserting Othuol at the hour of need. Check out what they had to say;
Kishkey emax This person is probably having difficulty resting every time he reads Othuol’s unresponded message. Binadamu ni binadamu. Rest easy Othuol Othuol.
