Comedian Wakimani reveals Churchill’s car gifts

Former Churchill Show comedian Paul Wakimani Ogutu has opened up about the unparalleled support he and fellow comedians received from the legendary Churchill Ndambuki during their time in the Laugh Industry.

In an interview with Plug Tv, Wa Kimani shed light on a significant moment when Churchill went above and beyond to assist the comedians, debunking the notion that the iconic comedian did not support his colleagues.

“One day, Churchill called many of us who were on the Laugh Industry and asked us to say what we wanted.

He said, ‘You people claim I have never helped any of you and that I do not even support you.’ He asked us what we wanted him to do for us on that particular day. Some of us said they wanted cars, while others wanted him to support them in doing shows,” revealed Wa Kimani.

The comedians were divided into groups based on their preferences – those desiring cars and those seeking financial support for shows.

Churchill generously provided each group of three with sh300,000 to organize and perform shows outside Nairobi.

For those aspiring to own cars, Wa Kimani said Churchill directed them to showrooms to select their vehicles.

Wa Kimani expressed that some comedians still use the cars that Churchill bought for them during that time.

While he couldn’t recall specific individuals who received cars, he mentioned that comedian Eddie Butita, Njoro, Jemutai, Karis, among others, were part of the group benefiting from Churchill’s support.

“We were put in group of those who wanted cars and those who wanted money to do shows. He gave us, sh300k each group of three to go and do the shows out of Nairobi.

Those who wanted cars were directed to go to showrooms and choose a car. There are people who still have those cars to date.

Churchill gave us money and that is one thing most of these comedians have never said about him. It was also one of the best day in being in the laugh industry.”

The former Churchill Show comedian also discussed his recent foray into the acting industry and teased an upcoming show in February.
