Fans of online comedy sensation Erastus Ayieko Otieno, best known as Flaqo, can finally put faces to the names ‘Mama Otis and Baba Otis’.
Flaqo made a name for himself as one of the most popular digital content creators in Kenya by making videos of hilarious impressions of a typical Kenyan family.
The first family character that gave Flaqo his break-out video was ‘Mama Otis’, whom he said was derived from his mum and two aunts. As ‘Mama Otis’ popularity continued to grow, sooner rather than later Flaqo introduced ‘Baba Otis’.
While he has since added other characters such as Bakari the choirmaster, Mama Kinston, and others, it is Mama Otis and Baba Otis who have proved to be the most popular.
