Comedian Mulamwah on Monday announced that he had quit comedy due to the numerous trolls he was getting online.
In a video posted on his Instagram account, the comedian burnt his famous shirt, a sign that he was done with the art.
He stated that he was not in the business for fame but there are some who always wished him the worst.
“I wasn't here for fame and bad blood but for fun…To those who always wished the worst for me I hope y'all happy now, the stage is all yours . my prayer is that no one else goes through the same again.
“I once posted @carrol_sonie while in a hospital bed, we had just lost our baby at 3 months following stress after being trolled online. I have never been the same since then,” he said.
Mulamwah also took time to apologise to all those who looked up to him but urged them to continue with the journey.
“We shall still meet on different entertainment platforms, social media ADS and product campaigns too,” he wrote.
Online, hundreds of comedians offered him advice saying it was never going to be easy and he was bound to come across numerous hurdles.
Below we have sampled some of their comments:
Boss hizi ni gani tena. Ukijipenda kwanza hakuna kitu itawai kutishia hii maisha!! Self love. Weh vile mimi napenda ma haters. Wao ndio hukusaidia ku grow kuliko ma fans. Kazi iendelee!!
I first experienced this when we started Naswa back in 2011, at first ili ni hit sana. Nikazoea hadi siku hizi mtu aki ni tusi I find it funny...kuna hadi mtu alisema nlikua na bahati nlienda hosi otherwise nifaa kukua mortuary Kazana omusiani wa ingo, safari bado
This is just but the beginning bro......... Never ever lose hope in life because no condition is permanent............ Just ask yourself why you started this noble course and you will realize you are not in this world to please anyone............ Remember only God knows how it starts and how it ends......... So keep pushing no matter what comes your way bro
Small bro,No one promised you it was going to be easy but nobody says that you cant overcome it as well,man was made to talk but whether its positive or negative was left to man to decided but hey good news is only God is the author of your destiny and many great stories are made out of people like you and I, wake up tomorrow smile and ask yourself why you have been doing it in the first place.YOU MUST GO BACK!!CHANGE THE CLOTHES IF YOU HAVE TO!!

From the comments, you have plenty of advice that i think you should follow if you choose to. What you should be thinking about right now is ‘ video yangu next content ni gani’ kazi lazima iendeleee, it must go on.
Now this is the real definition of trying to make everyone happy... huweziiiii.. hata ukifanya nini hawatakupenda... sisi tuko mpaka na members of the family wenye tunasaidia na school fees na rent, Marafiki wenye tulileta Nairobi wengine tunazunguka nao tukifikiri niwatu but bado wanasema tutaisha coz hawaonangi kenye tunafanya ya maana na usanii wacha ujinga nunua nguo ingine kuja tufanye Comedy Nairobi city...... The Best way to Enjoy life in this Industry is to focus so much on positivity.
Jomba! Kesho piga rest, kesho kutwa Shati ingine ikuom alafu Thursday turudi kazi haraka faster. Your gift far much superior than a few people with miserable lives and cheap bundles. Wewe ni Champ buda!! Tumekutambua.
I’ll just leave you with one idiom “Damned if you do and damned if you don’t” Keep on doing what you know best.
