Eddie Butita: How my life changed drastically after meeting Churchill

Popular Kenyan comedian Eddie Butita has become an internet sensation after being spotted in the US, where he had accompanied President William Ruto on a State Visit.

The content creator was also spotted engaging American Television Host Steve Harvey in what he termed a dream come true.

“Thank you Mr President for this honourable connection, meeting Steve Harvey Has been a dream for the past 14 years today it has become a reality,” Butita stated.

He further revealed details of his discussion with Harvey among them ways to improve showbiz in Kenya.


“We had great conversations on how to equip and train talents for business success in showbiz; it is show and business and I’m happy our creatives are factored in these conversations,” he added.

Butita’s rise to stardom in the creative industry has been a journey that took a lot of sacrifices, hardwork and commitment.

His journey began at the Churchill show, thanks to Mwalimu Churchill Ndambuki, who guided and mentored the then-18-year-old boy.

In October last year, during Ndambuki’s birthday, Butita appreciated him for having faith in his career. He noted that Churchill had entrusted him with the position of Creative Director at only 23.

“Happy Birthday Mwalimu Churchill, my destiny helper the first person to employ me as Head of Digital Laugh Industry at 21 years old first comedy opportunity at 18 years old creative director at 23 years old,” Butita wrote.

The following year, Butita said Churchill fronted him a loan to organize an event, noting that this was the beginning of his greatness.

“You gave me the first loan to organise an event at 24 na nikalipa by the way, and that was the beginning of greatness. You deserve a chapter in my book, as you grow older I learn one important lesson from you,” he wrote.

Churchill’s mentorship and support to Eddie allowed him to grow in the entertainment sector. This success opened doors for the comedian to other industries, creating employment for other young talents.

He owns a digital media house, Stage Presence Media (SPM Buzz), which boasts of being the home of creativity.

Last year, President William Ruto singled out Butita and Njugush as a creative force, lauding their ability to monetize artistic talent and even suggesting that the duo might be raking in more than the president’s salary of nearly Sh2 million.
