• Juacali had joined a section of Kenyans who claimed Njugush is good with skits but not stand-up comedy
• His sentiments irked Njugush’s fans and other Kenyans who dragged him online
• Juacali was forced to make a public apology to calm down charged up Kenyans on Twitter
“Cruel” members of the vicious Kenya On Twitter gang have disrespectfully decided to embarrass legendary Genge star Paul Nunda alias Juacali.
This, the unforgiving group did by dragging Juacali on Twitter and asking him to apologise for his recent mean remarks aimed at Comedian Njugush.
Juacali found himself in the middle of a heated online debate after airing his honest opinion following negative reviews from Njugush and Wakavinye’s recent tour in Australia.
A section of netizens had earlier trashed Njugush and his wife’s performance in Australia holding that they did not deliver.
Jumping on the discussion, Juacali reiterated that Njugush has never been a stand-up comedian.
According to Juacali, Njugush is good with skits and other comic content but not stand-up comedy.
“Njugush ni boy wangu but😆😆😆😆😆hakuna comedian hapo not funny at all,” Juacali tweeted.
His sentiments did not settle down well with a multitude of Kenyans on social media who demanded him to apologise for raining on a fellow creative’s parade.
Quite a number agreed that Juacali may be right but he was not the right person to call out Njugush.
Many urged him to always support other creatives instead of trashing them and crashing their dreams.
Being a legend and a mature celebrity for that matter, Juacali had to make a public apology for hurting Njugush and his fans’ feelings with his opinion.
“Nimekua a huge Fan of StandUp comedy as an art form ever since nione the great Richard Pryor kwa ma Video tapes hii ni kitambo. Then Eddie Murphy came along killed it on the standUp stage. Kuna similarities mob but now the difference between Musicians na StandUp comedians ni sisi wanamziki we create the content mara moja and we can perform it on stage hundreds of times but with comedians you have to be constantly creating coz ukirudia joke mara mbili si joke tena. Standup comedian has to have a huge team of dope writers ndio special ikue na structure, examples of dope writers wale nawajua ni YY na Butita(Iam the one who encouraged @eddiebutita to do 1hr specials when we were on a flight to Dubai a few yrs back). Kucreate content ya 1hr constantly si rahisi lazima ukue na team noma karibu. Standup comedian should be very clever,witty and think jokes on the fly to engage the crowd and also have a certain swagger kwa stage, kujirusha kwa hii art form you should study the greats kama The Kings of Comedy kwanza Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey, Martin Lawrence,Jamie Foxx na Dave Chappelle wale ni ma Beast kwa stage!!! StandUp comedians should always tell story za mtaani hizo stories will forever remain King!!! Na msiogope kutumia curse words hio ndio RAHA ya standUp sasa. Wacha nisibonge mob I will bigup all the comedians pushing the artform e.g the @comedyriots Fans wa Njugush na Njugush poleni sana kama hio tweet ilicome out harsh hio haikua intention napenda Skits za Njugush 🔥🔥🔥 ni vile tu StandUp ni ballgame ingine noma but polepole with practice NJUGUSH will become one of the Greats, let’s come together StandUp ni artform inataka patience na a lot of resources kama tu music industry but done right hapo kuna doe kuruka!!! If we put our heads together tutatoboa. Have a good day watu wangu 🙏🏿🙏🏿” Juacali wrote.
Juacali’s quick move to control the damage impressed a host of Kenyans who thronged the comments section of his tweet to laud him for being the bigger person.
