Comedian and radio presenter Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki has opened up on his encounter with gold scammers.
The comedian shared his experience with the fake gold traders during a conversation on his radio show on Friday, October 7.
In the incident that happened in Tanzania, Churchill said he was promised gold which he would sell and recover his money.
The plan, according to Churchill, was to subdivide the gold and resell it to make more profit, although he was not sure of where to sell it.
“Don't remind me I almost became a billionaire. I was promised gold the size of a loaf of bread, I would then proceed to cut it into different shapes and resell them
"I was also a fool because I did not ask myself where I would sell it. I had even started thinking of how I would be shopping in Dubai,” Churchill said.
Churchill admitted that the fake gold traders have mastered the art of convincing and in most cases manage to con people.
As such, it is easy to fall into their trap since it is hard for one to doubt them.
“They are very convincing. The way they speak makes you feel like everyone else is wrong at that time you hate your relatives because you plan on selling everything
“It is not witchcraft, those people brainwash you,” Churchill added.
He also shared how his friend was scammed his money after being promised a snake that produces gold.
"My friend was told he could be sold a snake that produces gold. He sold his car and his tractor to give to the man but he never got anything,” Churchill said.
Churchill responds to mistreating comedians
Elsewhere, Churchill responded to claims that Churchill Show comedians were being mistreated by seniors directors leading to depression and even death.
Speaking during an episode of the show, he insisted that everything is a journey and getting to the top is not easy.
“Watu wanongea sana hadi unashindwa where do you start. Everything is a journey and it has taken me almost 20 years now to do these journey series and we are not stopping,” he said.
Churchill urged comedians to use social media as a platform to gain more following by creating content, and sharing them.
“Now you are a brand, you even don’t need to be a brand, you just need to have great content to change that social media to media. You don’t have to be on TV, you don’t have to be on radio,” he added.
