Kenyan content creator Erastus Otieno alias Flaqo has opened up about the reasons he shifted from producing content on a weekly basis to a fortnightly schedule.

While responding to a fan on social media, Flaqo addressed the change in his content release strategy and expressed gratitude for the unwavering support of his fans.

"Had to cut down quantity and spark quality. Being 5 different people consistently for close to 5 years means gotta work 5 times harder than an individual, no be ease. Shooting a 20-minute show takes 36 hours nonstop shooting… meant it could not smoothly be a weekly but a fortnightly," he wrote.

The rise and rise of Flaqo

Flaqo's rise to success in the local entertainment industry has been nothing short of remarkable.

Speaking in past interviews, the funny man recounted how he got into content creation which began with a passion for watching vines, and saw him gradually transition into a content creator.

Recognizing the local audience's love for relatable content, Flaqo started his journey by shooting short videos using his modest phone.

He took inspiration from renowned vine creators like Dope Island and Kenny Knox as he paved his path to stardom.

In the early stages of his career, Flaqo shared his humorous content on popular social media platforms, particularly WhatsApp.

His knack for portraying the typical Kenyan parent, especially mothers, quickly endeared him to a growing audience.

Characters like Mama Otis, Baba Otis, Akoth, Bakari, Otis, and Mama Kinston became household names, bringing laughter and amusement to countless viewers.

Flaqo's ability to capture the essence of everyday Kenyan life through his comic characters resonated deeply with his audience.

As a testament to his creativity, he continued to introduce new characters to his repertoire, including Bahati, Bakari the Choirmaster, Khaligraph, and Eko Dydda.
