Popular comedian Mulamwa whose real name is David Oyando celebrated his 28 birthday in style.

In a phone call with K24 digital, the comedian who has rubbed shoulders in the entertainment industry said he has eyes on the top seat of Kenyan comedy.

“I want to grow in all aspects. To be a role model to many,” comedian Mulamwa said.

Mulamwa’s birthday was attended by fellow comedians Terrence Creative, Dj Shiti, Milly Chebi Mwangi and Oliver Otieno Alisa YY among others. 

Mulamwa has had a fair share of both the good and bad sides of the industry. At some point, he had contemplated quitting altogether.

In April 2020, he took to his social media pages to vent his frustration.

“It wasn’t an easy decision to make, I’m sorry guys. What was to make me happy has made me sadder. More enemies than friends, too much negativity and trolls,” part of his post read.

He would later thank his numerous fans for always having supported his journey and growth.

”I wasn’t here for fame and bad blood but for fun. Shukran sana kwa [thank you very much] for 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,” an emotional Mulamwa wrote.

However, his post elicited different reactions and caught the attention of many, including Jalang’o, who urged the budding comedian to reach out to the industry veterans including Churchill rather than calling it quits.
