The family of deceased comedian Emmanuel Makori, better known as Ayeiya, has settled on his burial date.

The comedian will be laid to rest on Friday at his parents’ home in Kijauri, Nyansiongo, Kisii County.

A memorial service was held on Wednesday at the Nairobi Pentecostal Church (NPC) church in Karen, where friends, fellow comedians and family eulogized him as a cheerful soul.

Comedian Dan Ndambuki, aka Churchill, will host a special edition of the Churchill Show on Thursday at Carnivore, Simba Saloon, to raise funds for the family of Ayeiya who is survived by a wife and a daughter.

Let's do this for AKA this Thursday… God speed and see you then.
