While at Daystar University, he was the drama club chairman. He also declared himself the varsity’s unofficial emcee and also did standup comedy when he got the chance. In 2006, he met Daniel Ndambuki AKA Churchill, who at the time was doing Red Corner. Eric was emceeing an event at which Churchill was to give a motivational talk. Churchill discovered Eric’s ability to do comedy, took his number and promised to get in touch.

His big break happened after two years when Churchill called him back and invited him to perform at the Churchill live show. It was at this show that Eric’s rise to fame and success began. He left the show early 2017 to pave way for upcoming comedians.

‘People think a woman can’t make you laugh’ Teacher Wanjiku speaks out

Leading comedian Teacher Wanjiku has said the most challenging thing in comedy is that the industry is fully dominated by men, making it hard for women to shine.

Most people do not believe that a woman is able to make people laugh,” Wanjiku said in an interview heard by Classic 105.

“You have to prove to them that you are better than even the men. There are fewer females in the comedy industry.”

Anerlisa Muigai’s response to unsolicited advice deserves a round of applause

Teacher Wanjiku made her debut in acting and comedy 10 years ago, and yet she still remains relevant.

“Being away for some time has helped me maintain my brand as a comedian. Understanding my brand and what I am telling my audience helps. While growing up, I always wanted to be a teacher, and when I was in college doing mass communication, that really motivated me, although I was an average student in class,” she said.

teacher wanjiku1

From there, it is hard work that has helped her thrive. “You have to keep pushing yourself in the industry. I am original and I work very hard for my content before I get into the studio,” she said.

As a comedian, Wanjiku has been responsive to feedback.

“I sometimes leave my audience to control me,” she said. “Always allow people to criticize you. If not, you will not manage.”

“Kiboko Tu Ndio Sikubeba” Teacher Wanjiku Teaches Eric Omondi A Lesson

Amidst controversy surrounding Eric Omondi’s indecent exposure with children, Teacher Wanjiku, a fellow comedian has come to his rescue.

If you are late to the party, Omondi posted a clip of himself naked, accompanied by several young boys, playing in the stream. The video attracted public outcry; from social media influencers to media personalities.

Ezekiel Mutua even chimed in, calling out the entertainer and quoting the constitution, classifying the act as a crime.

Knowing that he had already messed up badly, the comedian took to Instagram to apologize for his mistake, leaving many confused why he was apologizing. There was a rift between his followers, some of whom said that people should taking things too seriously while others hurled endless insults at him.

This comes several weeks after he hit headlines for a raunchy photo of himself wearing shorts, allegedly with no underwear, making his supposedly large testicles hang like a pair of fruits.

Teacher Wanjiku took to Instagram to say that she had just met Omondi to share with him a piece of her mind.

This is what she said:

eric omondi

“My meeting today with @ericomondi : I do not support what @ericomondi did. That was wrong and uncalled for, comedy or not but am glad he apologized and he admits it was inappropriate. This is a lesson to all of us. We should be careful what we post and release to the public.”

Too Saucy: Teacher Wanjiku Looks Amazing After Losing Weights (Photos)

The entertainment industry has grown tremendously and the comedy section is among the fast rising in the industry. Many a times, we made to believe that comedy is only men but these has changed over the years and Teacher Wanjiku is a perfect example.

teacherwanjiku2

She joined Churchill Live TV show a few years ago and made a name for herself.

It was pretty clear that she was a favourite of many people and her comedy was totally different as she acted like a teacher.

She later on left the show to venture into a solo career, even starting her own comedy show. But the show was cancelled because of poor ratings.

Teacher Wanjiku, real name Caroline Wanjiku is a married lady and a mother. After giving birth, she gained weight just like most women.

teacherwanjiku

But she is no longer the plump lady you might have been seeing around. She has lost weight and she looks amazing.

Initially, the comedienne weighed 84kgs and after hitting the gym hard, she lost losta weight and now weighs 64 kgs.

She took to social media to share her weight loss journey.

She wrote, “The journey has been crazy full of ups and downs but I have done it, you can too.”

Check out how she looks now;

HOT MOMMY! Teacher Wanjiku Looks Years Younger And Sexier After Losing a Whooping 15 Kgs (PHOTOS)

Veteran female comedian Teacher Wanjiku was one of the biggest and most popular acts in Kenya a few years back.

The comedienne thrived well in the male-dominated industry, making her name on Churchill’s live comedy show but sadly, a year later, she revealed that she had quit to focus on her solo career.

Teacher Wanjiku, real name Caroline Wanjiku, is known for her humor and creative, rib-cracking jokes about life in school and it’s amazing how she’s able to turn a simple fact into a funny gag that gets everyone laughing out loud.

The outspoken celebrity would, later on, start a TV show but sadly, the ratings were not very good, leading to its cancellation.

When Wanjiku took a hiatus from comedy and the entertainment scene, she later on revealed that she was walking down the aisle with the love of her life, Victor Ber.

The lovely couple exchanged wedding vows back in 2014 at a colorful ceremony that saw her fellow entertainers, friends, and family gather to congratulate them.

Soon after she revealed she was expecting their first child, and in October 2015, she welcomed into the world an adorable baby girl, Zuri Ber.

teacher-wanjiku-and-hubby

As we all know, giving birth comes with its challenges such as weight gain, and that’s the case with Wanjiku, who added a couple of kilograms, but at some point last year, decided it was time to get her sexy back.

Teacher Wanjiku has been hitting the gym hard and now the results are showing, after shedding a whopping 15 Kgs. She’s looking very youthful and more stunning, with a slim figure.

The female comedian looks breath-taking, and to prove she’s not done she still intends to cut down 5 more kgs.

You can do it too 15kgs down 5kgs to go !!!!! #Goalweighttings!

Don’t believe me? Check out the photos below as Teacher Wanjiku flaunts her slender frame as she works out in the gym.

10 Kenyan Celebrities Who Rocked Baby Bumps

‘Fat shaming’, the new word added to the online Oxford dictionary has been a trend lately especially with the rise of social media where everyone has an opinion whether educated or not. Women have been shamed for revealing their boobs while breastfeeding and now in a ridiculous twist of events…body shaming has extended to pregnant women with one such attack against TV Presenter Janet Mbugua Ndichu.

Apparently some viewers are not too pleased with Janet being on TV and reading news while pregnant. One viewer tweeted, “Just wondering why Janet Mbugua must newscast in that condition. Never seen it before on Kenyan TV but me thinks it’s gross.”

I think bumps are beautiful and body shaming a woman who is pregnant whether a celebrity or not is insulting the whole female population, including your own mother who gave birth to you. Whether a woman is in that ‘condition’ as some choose to call it…bumps give life and kudos to the female celebrities who have chosen to show off their pregnancies ignoring the critics and celebrating their new body shapes.

Here are 10 Kenyan celebrities who chose to embrace their bumps
