To show their love and support for Abel Mutua, a Kenyan actor, screenwriter, content producer, and storyteller, a fan has tattooed the name ‘Mkurugenzi’ across their wrist.
On Saturday, the actor, who is also the co-founder of Phil-It Productions, turned to Instagram to thank one of his passionate fans.
The ecstatic actor claimed that his followers are not joking and that anyone who does not love him is wasting their feelings in the middle of all the love he has gotten.
“Mi Saa hii Hakuna kitu mnaniambia. Kikosi yangu nayo haijui jokes. Kama haunipendi imagine nipende tu. Hate yako katikati ya Hii love yote is just a waste of emotions. Nipende gathee!!!!” Wrote Abel.
The self-proclaimed storyteller extraordinaire went by the alias ‘Mkurugenzi’ when he started his multitude of storytelling presentations on YouTube in 2020.
Mkurugenzi, the jack of all trades, now goes by the pseudonym Mkurugenzi, and his supporters go by the moniker ‘Wakurugenzi.’
The actor’s distinctive utterances, such “Utafraaaia,” which means “you will not like what will come next,” are only known to his admirers.
“I got you,” Mutua says to his admirers when he’s going to share a captivating narrative.
Celebrity First Encounters, Stories of My Life, Young and Stupid, and Headline Hitters are among the series on Abel Mutua’s YouTube account.
The YouTube programs have now spawned a new show in which the storyteller travels to different towns around the country to perform live storytelling for his admirers.
