Comedian David Oyando, alias Mulamwah, and Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) CEO Ezekiel Mutua have mended their relationship after a one-year feud. 

Taking to Twitter, Mulamwah said he ironed out his differences with the MCSK boss after meeting at the Marwa Music Awards at Nairobi Cinema.

"Yesterday we met with Dr @EzekielMutua, we spoke and Squared our differences," Mulamwah posted.

The comedian further said that he and Mutua "are now best pals" adding that he was grateful for his support in the music industry. 

"Hatchet buried. Looking forward to working with MCSK in the near future as promised. Asante bro," added Mulamwah. 

Ezekiel Mutua also confirmed he reconciled with Mulamwah after having a 'handshake' at the event.

In early 2021, Mulamwah called out Mutua on Twitter for reneging on an earlier pledge to appoint him as one of its clean content ambassadors while he served as CEO of the Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB)

 "Hello sir, @EzekielMutua, it's almost a year since your promise, did you mean it or you were just tweeting for the moment, or am I "inaccessible"? If the GVT cannot help us as youth, then please don't instill false hope in us, it's better you leave us to suffer in peace," tweeted Mulamwah.

However, in response, Mutua emphasized that his promise to support the comedian was a personal decision, not that of the board.

"Bro, my little token of support was personal, not Govt. Sorry if it gave you a false sense of entitlement. We did a background check on you and you didn't fit the "Clean Content Ambassadors" bill. We do not support filth & bad manners. Content does not have to be dirty to sell!" said Mutua. 

Not satisfied with Mutua's answer, Mulamwah responded saying, "I don't do dirty content, the token, I think, was for me to do for you a personalised video thanking you then I post on my socials when I included others who helped you rejected it."

In April 2020, Mutua promised to help Mulamwah return to his groove after announcing that he would quit comedy over cyberbullying. 

"I hear that twitterates are driving @mulamwah out of comedy & into depression. Bro pick yourself up and give me a call. I will buy you a new shirt, mentor you and make you an ambassador of clean content. The best way of dealing with cyberbullies is to refuse to give up!" said the former KFCB CEO.
