This was Ayeiya’s last performance on Churchill Show – VIDEO

Churchill Show paid a tribute to the late comedian Emmanuel Makori alias Ayeiya in the latest episode that aired on Sunday night.

Makori, famed for his line Ayeiya poa poa, died in the wee hours of Friday in a car accident near Catholic University in Nairobi.

The show opened with a black and white montage of his past performances, at some point joking that President Barack Obama’s official car was called the Beast, an acronym for Barack Entering Africa, Security Tight.

The comedian then entered the set with his trademark signature tune. His first joke was to reminisce on songs children used to sing compared to today’s.


He then created a scenario on what would happen if workers in certain careers were to go on strike.

He ended the show telling the audience: “Mungu awabariki sana (God bless you).”

The show producers ended his segment with a tribute that read:

“What gives us comfort is knowing you rested in  a good place. We shall forever miss your wisdom, maturity and talent. Fare thee well bro. Tutaonana baadaye.”

Here is a clip of his last performance (starting from 20:38):
