Kenyan comedian Owago Nyiro has spoken about a near-death experience he encountered while in the US.

The former Churchill Show comedian said he has endured a difficult week after he fainted and was unconscious for almost four hours before doctors came to his rescue.

Sharing photos on Instagram, Owago was thankful to the Almighty for saving his life.

"It has been hectic for me the past 4 days. Fainted and passed out for almost 4 hours. Saw real death and came back.

"Trust me I am not dying anytime soon again in Jesus name..........Thank you Lord for making me live again. I cheated death on this fateful day...Thank you Lord once again for saving my life," he wrote.

Speaking to Standard Entertainment, the funny man said there was a slight problem with his respiratory system but he has already been discharged.

"They have done several tests so we will find out the root cause of the matter in four days," he said.

Online, his fans and fellow entertainers wished him a quick recovery.
