Find Out a Part of Comedian Churchill’s Past Life You Probably Didn’t Know

Comedian Daniel Ndambuki, who is popularly known as Churchill or Mwalimu King’ang’i, once washed bottles for a wage in Nairobi’s Industrial Area when life was really tough for him.
The multi-talented 42-year-old, one of the most celebrated artistes in the country today, is also a radio personality. The funny radio man opened up about his tough early life during the Ruach Festival held at Sarit Centre, Nairobi, between 18th November and 23rd November, this year.
“I used to work in Industrial Area, washing bottles and I would be paid peanuts. The money wasn’t enough for food and transport. Things weren’t easy then,” he said.
The theme of the event, where Audiphaxad Peter Omwaka, popularly known as Guardian Angel, a popular gospel artiste, ministered, was, ‘To restore, rebuild and revive’.
The Classic 105 TV host wrote on his Instagram: “The event was refreshing and restoring. I am so glad and lucky to have been part of that amazing event. I wish it could happen every other day. I needed it and I am sure that those who came were totally blessed and it must have made a lot of difference in their lives.”
The festival, where Machakos-born celebrity Ndambuki spoke about those days when he could not even raise matatu fare, was also attended by other top comedians, including Ugandan Saivod, and Kenyan rib-ticklers MC Jessy, Sleepy David, MCA Tricky, Otos, and Dr Ofweneke.
