Mammito faces backlash over Jowie Irungu content [Video]

Shortly after High Court Judge Justice Grace Nzioka delivered a death sentence to Jowie, Mammito dropped a video that has drawn criticism from netizens, who deem it an inappropriate and tasteless joke.

Comedian Mammito Eunice

Popular content creator and comedian, Eunice Mammito, has found herself in hot water with netizens following her recent content about Joseph Irungu, commonly known as Jowie.

The controversy erupted just hours after High Court Judge Justice Grace Nzioka handed down a death sentence to Jowie for the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.

Mammito's latest video, which has since sparked mixed reactions, features her singing a song offering advice to Jowie.


In the video, Mammito, renowned for her humorous skits, is heard singing lyrics that some find insensitive given the gravity of Jowie's situation.

Despite Mammito's likely innocent intentions, many netizens have taken issue with her choice of words.

The lyrics of the song go: "Jowie, Jowie, Jowieeee... Don't you cry because you got a death sentence... See it as an opportunity to scam us... When you go to prison, you will find a man who loves you so much... You will perform your songs in the prison talent show and you will kill it, Jowie..."


Critics argue that Mammito failed to consider the pain and suffering Jowie's family is enduring.

Many assert that her attempt at humour fell flat and came across as tasteless given the seriousness of the situation.


Several fans took to social media to express their disappointment at the beloved comedian.
