Churchill comedians’ final tribute to Ayeiya -VIDEO

Comedians on Sunday gave their final tribute to the late Emmanuel Makori alias AKA during the Churchill show.

Dozens of entertainers turned up for the candle-lit tribute session with a serenade from musicians Amos and Josh.

Comedians wept during the moment of silence eliciting reactions from the audience as well.

They then staged a series of his jokes with his friend who survived the car crush Peter Wakimani pulling off one of Ayeiya’s jokes.

Chipukeezy, who has not been part of the weekly show for a while now, also wowed the audience with some of Ayeiya’s jokes.

Other comedians who were part of the show included Mwalimu Racheal and Obinna along with the usual Churchill Show acts.

Churchill gave a background of Ayeiya’s stint in banking before he joined comedy during the Top Comic programme.

The programme also featured photos of the Friday burial during which Ayeyia’s male colleagues were pallbearers.

The late Ayeiya left a young family, his wife Alice Njoki and daughter Tamara.
