Comedy isn’t easy as many think and the likes of Mulamwah, Eric Omondi have shared their journey to stardom in previous media interviews.
Hard work, perseverance and having a thick skin for trolls is the only way to succeed in the flooded comedy industry.
But we have seen several comedians sink into depression and others succumb to it.
Multitalented comedian Mulamwah has been forced to quit comedy after trolls overpowered him. He is always trolled on Twitter on a daily basis.
He shared a video burning his signature shirt, crying as he looked at it burn to ashes before leaving the scene.
The heartbroken comedian took to social media to reveal that he had quit doing comedy. In a lengthy post, he wrote:
IT WASN’T AN EASY DECISION TO MAKE. AM SORRY GUYS WHAT WAS TO MAKE ME HAPPY MAKES ME SADDER, MORE ENEMIES THAN FRIENDS, TOO MUCH NEGATIVITY AND 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 GESTATION FOLLOWING STRESS AFTER BEING TROLLED ONLINE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN THE SAME SINCE THEN, BUT WE ARE MEN STILL KEEPING ON A SMILE TO COVER THE GRIMACE. 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 🙏.
Jalango gave him good advice:
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!!
People advised him to stay strong and keep his head up because he can’t always please everyone anyways.
