I am not dead, comedian YY tells his ‘mourning’ fans

Comedian Oliver Otieno, commonly known as YY, has calmed fears among his fans over news of his death that have been widely circulated on social media.

In the last few days, YY’s fans had been made to believe that the comedian had died in the accident that actually killed his fellow comedian Emmanuel Makori aka Ayeiya.

The fans have since been posting messages of condolences on YY’s Facebook as they mourn his apparent ‘death’.

The comedian was overwhelmed by inquiries and on Sunday he shared an update to clarify that it was his colleague Ayeiya who died.

“Always make sure you have the right source of information… So many RIP messages to my posts and my Inbox… I was replying to everyone that Am not dead until now am overwhelmed because the texts are so many… it’s My good friend “Ayeiyaa” poa poa!” wrote YY.

The comedian shared screenshots of an inbox conversation with a fan and what was puzzling was that the fan had inbox a man he thought died.
