Kenyans respond to Ezekiel Mutua after offering to mentor Mulamwah

By Fay Ngina | April 15th 2020

Kenyan Film Classification Board (KFCB) boss Ezekiel Mutua on Wednesday, April 15, weighed in on Kenyan comedian Mulamwah’s cyber-bullying on social media.

Taking to his Twitter handle, the KFCB boss asked the comedian not to give up on comedy because he was cyber-bullied.

Mutua even asked Mulamwah to give him a call and offered to mentor him to become the ambassador of clean content.

“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 cyber bullies is to refuse to give up!” Mutua said.

When one tweep told the KFCB boss that he drove Alvindo, another Kenyan comedian, into depression, Mutua said that he would have helped if the comedian changed his content.

“I would have helped him too if he was willing to change and do clean content. It doesn't have to be dirty to sell. I helped Desagu with 200K to buy better equipment and I demand nothing from him,” added the KFCB boss.

On Monday, the comedian posted a video on Instagram of him burning his signature shirt as a way of saying he had quit comedy due to the number of trolls.

Mulamwah said that he was not doing comedy for the fame adding that his wife miscarried following the stress of him being trolled.

“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,” said the comedian.

Despite efforts by the KFCB boss to help and mentor the comedian, a section of Kenyans on Twitter had a lot to say.

Some Kenyans thanked Mutua for his generosity but asked him to first investigate the comedian before taking any further measures.

Ja Lock: The worst kind of votes to get in life is sympathy votes. I wish you knew how many people Mulamwah has bullied and abused on these streets. Yes, bullying is wrong and should be condemned, but he is holding the wrong end of the stick.

Wanjiku Mugane: As you take your time to listen to music before you ban it also take your time to research on Mulamwah it might take a month. True he needs a mentor and a break.

Nelson Namonywa: Mulamwah wanted this for himself by being a bully to some of his critics forgetting that KOT are more than bullies when rattled.

Gacheru Kariuki: The guy has bullied so many people, including Kamene Goro. Support him, but don't hide the fact that he is also a big bully.

Peter Luka: That’s great. The mark of a leader here! @mulamwah take up this offer for mature mentorship and guidance.

Jama Shujaa: I hate bullies and I do not agree with cyber bullying at all. But do you know Mulamwah is one of the Biggest Bullies on this App??? However much I do not support anyone bullying someone back. But as you mentor him ask him to stop being a bully himself.
