comedian and media figure Daniel Ndambuki

According to former KBC sports presenter Jack Oyoo Sylvester, well-known comedian and media figure Daniel Ndambuki, often known as Churchill, reportedly had the ambition of being a football commentator.

In a recent interview, Sylvester described how Ndambuki's hopes of working as a football analyst came to an end.

The famous Swahili commentator said that he and Churchill used to give analysis at the Ruaraka grounds.

"Since Ndambuki enjoys making people laugh, People often assume he's simply trying to get at them when he discusses a serious topic.

"But my encounter with Ndambuki was genuine. He aspired to work as a football analyst."

Tusker FC was playing either AFC Leopards or Gor Mahia while we were at the Ruaraka grounds, according to Sylvester.

He stated that after hearing his lightning-quick analysis, Churchill was apprehensive to speak.

"I began making comments. You are aware of how quickly I speak, so Ndambuki believed he could keep up.

"I asked him if he was ready after five minutes, but he ordered me to go on. He gave the same response when I asked him the same question after 10, 15, and 20 minutes."

He said, "I handed him the microphone and told him he needed to talk too in the 30th minute."

Churchill never stayed at the commentary booth for more than 10 minutes, according to Sylvester, who also began his career as a teacher in the Nyanza area.

He said that the moment the ball left play, the current Classic 105 host gave him the microphone.

Ndambuki did not have much experience calling football games, but he went on to become one of Africa's most famous journalists.

Churchill Show, his comedy show, is presently well-known across the nation.

The star, who was born in Kitui, has helped Eric Omondi, Francis Munyao (MC Tricky), and Herman Kago (Professor Hamo), among other Kenyan comedians, advance their careers through the show.
