To be a celebrity is no easy fete and having a thick skin is almost a requirement.
Kenyan celebrities Akothee and Jalang’o have come out to offer their support to one of their own, comedian Mulamwah.
Comedian Mulamwah, real name David Oyando recently posted a heartwrenching message on his social media saying he had quit comedy over cyberbullying and losing his unborn child.
Mulamwah burnt his signature shirt, announcing he had decided to take a back seat in the comedy industry, following constant trolls on social media.
He then revealed his girlfriend Carrol Sonie had lost their three-month-old unborn baby, following stress caused by online trolls.
He went on to thank his fans for the support and all 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.
Following his emotional message, singer Akothee posted a rant in support of Mulamwah saying that him quitting was letting naysayers win. She encouraged him to be strong and to continue with the great work he was doing as he cannot please everyone.
In the video, Akothee highlighted some of her past experiences and that celebrities are only human.
Meanwhile fellow comedian Jalang’o reiterated Akothee’s sentiments that he should not give up and that haters will always try to put celebrities down as they want to be them.
He added that he and other comedians are always available to listen to him.
Other celebrities who advised him not to allow online bullies to kill his comedy career include comedians MC Jessy and Dr Ofweneke.
