Teacher Wanjiku has responded to reports that she no longer sees eye to eye with veteran comedian Daniel Ndambuki aka Churchill after she left comedy show, Churchill Show.
“I have haters and I need them. Whatever people said, that is politics. Churchill and I are not vying for any political seat. So, there is no need to create enmity between us. I would really appreciate if people would respect that Churchill and I are not fighting,” Wanjiku told eDaily.
On whether she regrets leaving the show, the comedienne revealed, “I do not regret leaving Churchill Show. It is something we had seen, we knew it was coming. I left with a clean heart and goodwill from them. That is a very good platform for up and coming artistes to nurture their talent and gain visibility.”
She added that she and Churchill are good friends and go way back.
“He is a good friend of mine and he was also a family friend; our history goes way back. Churchill and I did comedy at the Kenya National Theatre. At Churchill Show, I went to work. He knows me better; probably more than people would imagine.”
So why exactly did she leave the show?
“I joined Churchill Show in 2013 and according to my contract; I was supposed to appear as an act in the show for only one year. So, when the contract ended, I did not renew it. I made the choice after much thinking and Churchill was aware of my decision to leave the show. The idea was to create the character Teacher Wanjiku outside Churchill Show,” she said.
