Comedy isn’t easy as many think and the likes of Mulamwah, Eric Omondi have shared their journey to stardom in previous media interviews.
Hard work, perseverance and having a thick skin for trolls is the only way to succeed in the flooded comedy industry.
But we have seen several comedians sink into depression and others succumb to it.
Multitalented comedian Mulamwah has been forced to quit comedy after trolls overpowered him. He is always trolled on Twitter on a daily basis.
He shared a video burning his signature shirt, crying as he looked at it burn to ashes before leaving the scene.

It wasn't an easy decision to make . Am sorry guys , what was to make me happy makes me more sad, more enemies than friends,too much negativity,trolls. I wasn't here for fame and bad blood but for fun. Shukran sana kwa the support from the fans and everyone else who made it a success .To those who always wished the worst for me I hope y'all happy now , the stage is all yours . my prayer is that no one else goes through the same again. I once posted @carrol_sonie while in a hospital bed , we had just lost our baby at 3 months following stress after being trolled online. I have never been the same since then . Pole sana pia for all who looked up to me especially the kids, I have failed you 😔, but keep your heads up . We shall still meet on different entertainment platforms , social media ADS and product campaigns too. GOD BLESS. Asanteni 🙏 . Konki 🙏 .

Keep on doing what you know best. 👊🏽
fredomondikenya Bro. All this is unnecessary…I have been trolled more than you. But in this world I learnt one lesson, mind your business and do wot makes you proud and happy. People will always talk and that’s just part of growth. Above all don’t focus so much on the negativity, how many ppl r u letting down who are actually standing by u? For wot? For the sake of hate? We have bigger problems to solve as one, all I can advice you as a big bro, don’t answer to everyone and focus on wot u do with love and respect across to all, trust me no hate is permanent. U are creative that’s y they talk, so just do u and don’t talk back, keep them in suspense…
dansonko All I see is a rebirth. You are definitely heading in the right direction. Usiskize mtu. Weka Focus Juu na Mbele. You are coming out bigger and stronger.
