MC Jessy Apologises Over Churchill Show Joke That Caused Uproar

  • A video extracted from a Churchill Show episode landed comedian MC Jessy in trouble after it appeared to ridicule one Mzee Achoka, who was part of the audience.

    Kenyans took issue with the comedian and the cameramen behind the episode's production for having depicted the fan as having an ugly face.

    The comedian, in his presentation, advised women to find the rare and the ugliest men so as to be free from the hustle and bustle of combating 'husband snatchers.'

    "Hawa machali wahandsome si wako peke yako, kuna wengine pia wanawaona. Tafuta kimtu tu kiko na sura yake, private na sura personal (Cameraman focusses on Mzee Achuka), sio huyo, huyo ni sponsor.

    (These handsome men are not yours alone. There are other women seeing them. Just get someone with a rare look of their own kind (insinuating being ugly as the cameraman focused on Mzee Achuka in the audience), not that one, that one is a sponsor)," stated MC Jessy amid laughter.

    It is this supposed joke that sparked uproar on social media, with Kenyans demanding that Jessy apologises to Mzee Achuka.

    Several hours after the video went viral, MC Jessy took to his social media to apologise to the comic fan admitting he takes the blame for the joke that went horribly wrong.

    "On behalf of the cameraman, producer, Churchill Show family and I, We want to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to Mzee Achoka, his family and Kenyans in general. 

    "I don't have any excuses. I take full responsibility for the production of this episode that might have gone in bad taste. I'm really sorry it happened. In future, I promise it won’t happen again," he wrote on his Instagram page.
