Popular comedian Steven Owuor Dede alias Dj Shiti has taken to Instagram to reminisce about his humble beginnings, revealing that he borrowed his mother’s shirt for his first live performance on Churchill Show.

The popular Real Househelps of Kawangware actor went onto the social media platform to recall how he had to alter his mother’s shirt to fit him for his first live performance on the popular comedy show. The actor also used the post to encourage those going through difficult times.

“This was my first time to perform on this huge platform, I was very nervous and not sure if Nairobians would tolerate my jokes. Believe me, this shirt belonged to my mum and I had to steal and trim to fit me. The journey in life is full of rough roads and those rough and tough days should fuel those dreams and be a motivation that push you on daily basis beginnings.”

The popular comedian began his career at the Nakuru Players Theatre where he performed set-books, plays and stand- up comedies though not many had heard of the comic style at the time. He had his first break in Nairobi with the show Crazy Comedy.

“I would often commute from Nakuru to Nairobi during each show until I finally decided to settle in Nairobi in 2013,” said the actor in a 2018 interview.

Dj Shiti later met legendary comedian Daniel “Churchill” Ndambuki and his life completely changed.

After a successful audition, the aspiring entertainer secured his place in the much-coveted Churchill Show comedy line-up.

However, as his career was taking roots, his personal life wasn’t quite aligned yet. He was going through a difficult time, with no place to live and struggling to make ends meet.

In a July 2019 interview- Upclose with Betty, the comedian spoke about how he expected his friends and family to be there for him when he got to Nairobi but got a rude shock when he realised they would offer him no support.

“In between the auditions, I would often sleep out in the cold streets of Nairobi. The only people who came to my rescue were my ‘sisters’ known to do business within Koinange street who occasionally gave me money and temporary accommodation,” said Dj Shiti in 2018.

As the entertainer’s tides continued to change, he landed a lucrative deal with Star Times Limited as a Brand Ambassador later the same year.

The deal came hot on the tracks of his successful appearances on Real Househelps of Kawangware from where he had captivated local audiences and amassed a large fan-base.

Comedian Churchill says just like any other business, coronavirus has hit him too.

Churchill, real name Daniel Ndambuki has been doing ‘The Journey Series’ on his TV show which is originally a stand-up comedy show that attracts thousands of viewers.

Speaking to Mpasho, Churchill revealed;

“We had invested quite some amount in the production of the show. And now, you can’t use that gear, you have to put all that aside. You cannot set up something so big for like 200 people, that is loss-making. It almost takes us to where we began. We remain positive though”

Adding;

“I am happy with all that is happening from all other comedians.”

Churchill said this after the launch of TuKo App, which he is the brand ambassador.

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.
