    "We are grateful to all of you for tuning in to watch Auntie Boss every week on NTV. Thank you for supporting this show right through till the end, we love and appreciate all of you," the producers announced.

    None of the famous actors, from Eve D'Souza, Nyce Wanjeri, Sandra Dach (Silprosa), David Opondoe (Mayweather) disclosed their next plans after the show ended. 

    In April, the show went off air owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

    Moonbeam detailed that they had been forced to take a brief hiatus due to social distancing regulations. 

    The Kenyan film industry is, however, also shifting, with actors and comedians embracing digital transformation. 

    Several artistes have launched different shows on social media with focus on creating content. 

    While speaking with Kenyans.co.ke on Wednesday, July 22, comedian Eric Omondi acknowledged that the Covid-19 disruption of shows would change the game and more content creation would be consumed on the web and TV than physical shows.

    He advised artists to invest in quality content which can be used by brands for marketing. 

    Omondi added that companies were creating huge marketing budgets for content creation that comedians should tap into. 

    “I had already built my brand and adapting to the content industry was easy but these new acts are not as lucky because now there is so much content and you have to stand out,” he stated.
