Mulamwah announced his break-up with his girlfriend Carol last week. His message to her was a sob story that reminded me slightly of Eric Omondi’s own message to Chantelle Graziano after they broke up.
Mulamwah’s and Eric’s messages each read like love letters from men who weren’t comfortable with their respective relationships ending.
Compare some snippets from their respective break-up letters below.
Eric Omondi’s is below:
I have known you for 4 and a half years, shared and created some of the best moments in life with you. You changed my life completely. As you move into your new phase in life with or without me, I want to wish you all the best, my love.
I pray to God Almighty that He may keep you. May He lead you. May He watch over you. I want to let you know that I will always be here for you any time, every time. As you fly away my love may you glow, shine like an Angel that you are. I will miss you every moment. Every single moment you are the best thing that happened to me!!!
Dear SONIE , 💔 I always wished to have a cute girl but God gave me an exquisite one , more than I had asked for . It has been real , the love … the fun and everything else we did together. I can’t recall all but honestly it has been the best time of my life . I always carried you on my shoulders ; I don’t know what you saw ahead 🥺 while was too preoccupied making sure that you remain at the top . I always believed that when you elevate your woman she will stand in for you when you are at your worst , and for many others in society too. That’s all I ever wished and still wish for you , the very best in life , and in all aspects.
As one can see both messages express an unrequited yearning and a feeling of adoration by both men for the women who aren’t together with anymore.
Although I do believe break-ups should be amicable, the way both Eric and Mulamwah do theirs is very odd for me. Their messages to me express a pedestalization of the women that they were in relationships with.
One famous relationship quote I love goes as such, “Treat her like a celeb and she will treat you like a fan”. I think this is what might have happened in the two respective relationships.
Does it make sense that these men are still praising and worshipping women who clearly didn’t want to stay in relationships with them? Is that normal? I don’t think so. I see it as an unattractive behaviour that ultimately hurt both their relationships.
But it seems that the comedian has more resilience than I anticipated. This past weekend, Mulamwah was spotted in the company of trending socialite Mulamwah and from the clips and images posted online one could tell that they were having the time of their lives.
A post shared by shakila🔘 (@i.a.m.s.h.a.k.i.la) on
But the comedian is one who likes dealing with rumour and conjecture quickly and directly. On his latest IG story, the comic said that hanging out with Shakila didn’t mean that they were dating, even though that was what many people believed.
He clarified their relationship with Shakilla saying;
About yesterday’s events, no one is dating anyone here and there’s nothing in between any of us whatsoever; it was just partying with those that are vybing with the same energy as you are. Anyways, I am loving the new me, lessons are to be learned. Siasa ziishe sasa tupige chronicles kama kawa. So subscribe and lets roll, newly structured show loading, we must have fun regardless. Konkiiiii
I believe him when he says that he and Shakila aren’t dating but I still don’t believe that he has moved on so quickly. His wording, “Anyways, I am loving the new me,” is very instructive of his state of mind.
Comedian Mulamwah is in a world of hurt. Why? He and his lover Carol Sonnie are no longer together. This comes after gossip blogs and sites learned that Carol had deleted all his photos from her social media pages.
Some thought that the move was a stunt but saw the seriousness later on after Mulamwah himself delivered the sad news on his social media pages.
His long-winded and sad message was an ode to the woman who had been with him for 2 years. Reading between the lines of his poem, one can see that he still isn’t over her and that the pain was coursing through his veins. Read the message below:
My only issue with the message above is the cognitive dissonance that it displays. At the beginning of the long message, Mulamwah makes it look like the break-up might have been his idea or at the very best mutual.
I don’t buy that. Why?
One, the flowery prose the actor uses for a woman that he has suddenly broken up with shows that he might still harbour the hopes of getting back with her. A man who has moved on rarely if ever writes such a message to his ex. The most he will do is give her closure and that’s it.
Secondly, the fact that he posted her image in a break-up message while she herself had deleted his photos with no remorse shows me who was OK letting it burn. Talk about moving on without looking back in the rearview.
Lastly, a section of his long message shows the reason that the two might have gone their separate ways. It reads,
I always carried you on my shoulders ; I don’t know what you saw ahead 🥺 while was too preoccupied making sure that you remain at the top . I always believed that when you elevate your woman she will stand in for you when you are at your worst…
This section shows me that Mulamwah might have been blindsided when Carol decided to move on. The words in particular, “I always believed that when you elevate your woman she will stand in for you when you are at your worst,” shows me a man who is still in shock at the way the relationship ended.
A relationship he clearly wanted to nurture for the long-term but it does take two to tango.
Mulamwah became a household name the past few years and with that has come the pros and cons associated with being a celebrity.
The comedian whose real names are David Oyando has for the first time opened up about how the loss of his unborn baby affected him.
The man was interviewed on Carolina Hot Edition, where he explained how hard it was for him moving on from the death, saying that he had to go for counseling.
The loss he said affected every area of his life;
“iliniaffect vibaya because nilikuwa nimeprepare hata nikiona msee amebeba mtoi tao nasema that’s us in a few, mnaanza kuangalia bei ya vitu za watoi zinafika wapi, but when that happened ilini-affect sana because at that time I was doing a lot of shows. So unapata Caro (my girlfriend) nimsick ako hospitali na unaenda show nca watu hawataki kujua una go through nini wanataka wacheke. You just put on a happy face, you make them happy but as soon as unatoka kwa stage,you go back kwa ile situation inakuhit. Unakaa Hospitali mpaka kesho asubuhi. So iliniaffect in all aspects, financially, emotionally and even my thought process was blocked I could not think of any other thing.”
“Tulikuwa counselled na Daktari, akatuambuia things happen and everything inakuja na reason ya God so we just started coping, we are recovering and now we are good, coz life has to go on,” explained Mulamwah.
Asked on whether KFCB kept their promise of helping him when he announced that he was quitting Comedy over cyber-bullying, the funny man said;
“Hiyo Time alikam through. First time alituma watu wake, kuna msee anaitwa Sammy Ondimu anawork na yeye close so akanicall tukaongea, then yeye (Ezekiel Mutua) pia akanipigia and we had a lengthy discussion hata akatutumia kakitu hiyo time. Ilikuwa tu doo mzuri iko tu na zero mingi. Then akaniambia take heart Corona ikiisha wewe kuja tumeet so hatuja meet na hiyo time nilikuwa Eldoret na kulikuwa na curfew so singetravel. So akasema kukitulia we can organize a meeting.”
Mulamwah seems to have gotten over the hectic week he had, and is moving on, seemingly getting back to the thing that made him a household name – his comedy.
The man is in the news again after a video of him in a marijuana field made the rounds courtesy of a video Eric Omondi posted on his Instagram page.
The video comes hot on the heels of the day marijuana enthusiasts across the world on celebrated the “herb” – which was marked on Monday, April 20.
For those in the dark, on April 20, otherwise read as 4.20, millions of people world over, users and non-users of bhang, celebrate it yet it remains illegal in many parts of the world.
In the hilarious video Eric posted, Mulamwah is seen celebrating the day by showing much support to the ”herb” on social media. ”Farming is good for your health meeen,” he said, while pruning the marijuana leaves.
The video seemed to have been leaked by an unknown party as it was not available on his social media pages. Many condemned the person who leaked the video and those who have been sharing it online, worried that police could arrest him, thanks to their posts.
Eric’s video itself was a rendition of the popular death memes that feature the Ghanaian pall-bearers who dance with the coffin of the departed. The video starts with Mulamwah pruning what looks to be marijuana.
From there, Eric takes over with 3 other men dancing to the popular beat that has inspired many death-inspired memes. The purpose of Eric’s video is to ask the question; “What trouble if any will Mulamwah’s handling of the weed cause for him in the future?”
Also, will Ezekiel Mutua still want him to become a clean entertainment ambassador after he sees this video?
Mulamwah made the viral announcement last week that he would be leaving the world of Kenyan comedy after what he described as online bullying.
The popular Churchill Show comedian seems to have had a change of heart and has decided to release some new material in what he describes as, “something that makes me happy.”
The comedian announced his return to comedy on Saturday, April 18, in a video shared on his social media accounts saying support from fellow Kenyans and colleagues had made the difference.
In the video labeled Back Like We Never Left, Mulamwah revealed the people who made a huge impact on him going back to comedy.
“I want to personally thank Jalang’o, he came through and talked to me with assurance all will be well. Akothee also came out and cried for all artists. Kenyans on Twitter and every other person who offered support, I want to thank you,” he said.
The comedian also commended Ezekiel Mutua, gave him a call encouraging him to continue doing what he loved. “Personally I spoke to Ezekiel Mutua who told me it was not the end but the beginning for us to produce more clean content for the society and to overcome other challenges,” he added.
He also spoke about allegations from Kamene Goro who said the comedian had bullied her. Mulamwah blamed it on being a young artist and a bit ignorant as he was just coming up.
“I was a small artist and I did not know a lot, I tried DMing her for an apology but it wasn’t fruitful. We met at an event but when I went to say “hi” she acted like she did not know me. I hope that next time when a lesser entertainer comes to you asking for an apology, please take it,” he urged.
Mulamwah might have said that he is quitting social media, but that doesn’t mean he is sticking fully. The comedian decided to explain the reason he left the thing that he loved most and one of the main sources of his income.
The comedian, who had earlier said that cyber-bullying had forced to leave social media, has now explained the deeper thought that went into his decision.
Mulwamwah explained that the past three days have been hell for him and he has tried his best to find a silver lining during this difficult moment.
“After recording the video, I switched off my phone. It has not been easy for me and I was low. Some people said I was probably depressed and I cannot deny that,” he said.
The content creator revealed that the constant trolling kept affecting the people he loved, with his younger brothers and parents becoming secondary victims of online abuse after people kept ridiculing and showing them what the comedian was going through.
“This thing did not just affect me, my parents and younger brothers saw what I was going through. People would laugh at my brothers and tell them their eldest sibling was funny-looking,” he added.
The hilarious entertainer disclosed that burning his famous white jacket was one of the most difficult things he had to do. He explained the garment was burnt at the place he recorded his first video before joining the world of comedy.
Kendrick Mulamwah has quit comedy. The comedian took to Instagram where he was seen burning his signature shirt. He then revealed that his girlfriend Carrol Sonie had lost their baby following stress which was caused by online trolls.
Part of his message read;
“What was to make me happy makes me more sad, more enemies than friends,too much negativity,trolls. I wasn’t here for fame and bad blood but for fun. Shukran sana kwa the support from the fans and everyone else who made it a success .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 . Pole sana pia for all who looked up to me especially the kids, I have failed you 😔, but keep your heads up”
Fellow Comedians and Kenyan celebrities have stood with Mulamwah and here are some of their messages
“Kijana kesho ukiamka enda sokoni uchukue nguo ingine kazi iendelee…you cant make everyone happy! Even Jesus was crucified!! I know sometimes it really hurts but truth is no one has ever made it without haters!! Sisi sikuizi tumezoea hadi tusipotukanwa tunashangaa nini mbaya!!😂😂😂….Harden up son! Nobody said it will be easy! Hakuna kutoroka!! Twende kazi!!”
“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….. #Mulamwa The King of Vines… kenye hao maadui hawajui is that you are one of the most supportive Comedian… Son kama Mwenyezi MUNGU Hajakudharau Mwanadamu ninaniiiiiiii???????”
“Jomba! Kesho piga rest, kesho kutwa Shati ingine ikuom alafu Thursday turudi kazi haraka faster. Your gift far much superior than a few bastards 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. 👊🏽”
“Yoooo take heart. You were meant for this. Let no one dim your shine. Haters will always be there. Ignore, don’t read hate, don’t invest your time on hate but invest it in God family, and the people who appreciate your work. It’s not over until God who is THE ULTIMATE says so. Get up! Get your walk on bro!”
😳 @mulamwah 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
DONT GIVE UP !!!!! Don’t , In fact work harder to prove them wrong .!!! DONT GIVE UP KAKA
HARDEN UP BRO, NOBODY SAID IT WOULD BE EASY…..in this industry we’ve all been through hardship and crazy trodds kwa mtandao bro but we still here we never dropped the the towel…… WAKE UP AND FIGHT ON….. when you quit they win bro….usikubali and ashinde…. I think ME AND DK in 2019 feb tungechoma microphone the enemy could have won but we stayed and fought, The calling is always greater that us. Stay on the road.
Small piece of advice. DON’T DO WHAT YOU DO FOR NOBODY!! DO IT FOR YOU. It makes you happy Dont STOP!! Trust me if any person who has a certain amount of influence tells you their story,you won’t believe what they have struggled through. Fans feel entitled but rem you have the power. Rem why you started and focus on that. If it was giving up I personally would be back in the village or somewhere in Inda. Take some time..rest and EXPLODE with even better You when you are ready. I repeat DON’T STOP. They hate,they diss,they don’t comment, they dont share,they don’t applaud..DO IT FOR YOU. you sleep happy,make 1 more person happy…you are highly Favoured. 😎
“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 @mulamwah”
“Small bro,Noone promised you it was going to be easy but nobody say that you cant overcome it as well,man was made to talk but wheather its postive 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 tommorrow 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!!”
RISE UP AGAIN you are destined for GREATNESS, it is just a passing cloud. You are GREAT tuendelee Kusonga
When the going gets tough the tough get going. If it was easy everyone could have done it.
If it was easy everybody would be going it!! Keep doing it
All I see is a rebirth. You are definitely heading in the right direction. Usiskize mtu. Weka Focus Juu na Mbele. You are coming out bigger and stronger. 🔥

@mulamwah Use the stones thrown at you to build a fortress bro!
Comedian Mulamwah apologized heavily to his fans in an emotional message announcing he was done with comedy for good.
Mulamwah won the hearts of very many Kenyans with his funny comic online videos but sadly that is over.
Just a few days ago, he came out to say that the online streets can be tough because of all the many trolls. This was in supporting of Azziad who had a massive blow after her video went viral.
Sadly the hate on Twitter and continuous trolls and negative energy have now forced him to quit his craft and his passion which is comedy.
Mulamwah took to social media to announce that he is done and dusted with comedy.
“It wasn’t an easy decision to make. Am sorry guys, what was to make me happy makes me more sad, more enemies than friends, too much negativity, trolls. I wasn’t here for fame and bad blood but for fun. Shukran sana kwa the support from the fans and everyone else who made it a success. 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.” Mulamwah posted
He later added that the situation got so bad that his girl lost their three-month-old baby because of all the stress he was going through with his wife.
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. Pole sana pia for all who looked up to me especially the kids, I have failed you 😔, but keep your heads up. We shall still meet on different entertainment platforms, social media ADS and product campaigns too. GOD BLESS. Asanteni 🙏 . Konki 🙏
This news got so many people talking on social media especially because he burned down his trademark, his jacket. So many people including his fellow celebrity friends were encouraging him not to give up because of trolls.
“When the going gets tough the tough get going. If it was easy everyone could have done it.” Bien posted
Jalang’o who has also been in the same boat facing so many trolls and haters, advised him to buy another jacket and carry on with his craft because he can’t make everyone happy.
“Kijana kesho ukiamka enda sokoni uchukue nguo ingine kazi iendelee…you cant make everyone happy! Even Jesus was crucified!! I know sometimes it really hurts but truth is no one has ever made it without haters!! Sisi sikuizi tumezoea hadi tusipotukanwa tunashangaa nini mbaya!!😂😂😂….Harden up son! Nobody said it will be easy! Hakuna kutoroka!! Twende kazi!!” He commented
Read the comments of other celebrities out there to encouraging him:
Big Tedd: Go ahead MAKE YOU HAPPY – wengine WAKWENDE
Sammie Kioko: If it was easy everybody would be going it!! Keep doing it
Mike Muchiri: Hey Mulamwah, I just want you to know that the devil attacks what has value😊. Don’t allow people to gaslight you with all the negativity. Sometimes it gets worse to get better. Better days are coming!
Captain Charisma: Yoh bro! Dust yourself and get back to doing yo thing G! Haters wako kila mahali
Sami Flinch: Champ wahgwan??. FCUK the haters they will never know what it takes to do what you do so don’t stop for anyone. They will always have something to say.
Flaqo a fellow comedian: My plea to our fans as rising Entertainers😭😭,u create us today and destroy us tomorrow just at the time when we are probably about to do you proud,tomorrow a better Entertainer will rise and i will be grided and trashed😓😓,that is not the way…Am honestly scared coz its the same Mulamwah who guides all my steps when it comes to social media…Lets not trash a talent we all participated in growing,We are all Human…IT IS WELL😓😓🙏🏾🙏🏾SOAR STILL 💯
This is sad because so many people loved Mulamwah and he grew so fast in his career.
We do hope he can dust himself up and get back to what he loves doing which is comedy.
