If I rise, let me rise with other people - Crazy Kennar scoops 3 titles at the Pulse Influencer Awards

Full list of Pulse Influencer Awards winners

Kenya's Comedian of the Year Award winner Crazy Kennar giving his speech at the just concluded Pulse Influencer Awards

"If I rise, let me rise with other people", that was the crux of Crazy Kennar's acceptance speech during the inaugural edition of the Pulse Influencer Awards on Saturday.

The Kenyan comedian scooped not one, not two but three awards during the awards ceremony held at the Pride Inn Azure Hotel in Nairobi.

He, rightfully, now holds the title for Kenya's Comedy Influencer, Facebook Influencer and Instagram Influencer of the Year!

What was more intriguing was that he came to the awards with his team and insisted that they are all part of his success.

"I want to thank my team, as you can see, they are all here and I thank God, manze nimefurahi sana!" he stated after scooping his second award of the night.

He would later add: "Kufika hapa it has taken us hardwork, commitment and teamwork. I really love the people I work with, sisi hushoot 24/7 - saa hii tunafikiria kushoot, tumeshoot and after this tutashoot - and I believe this is just the start, we will win even more awards. When I lift the Oscar Award you will remember that Crazy Kennar told you so!

"Kennar is much more than what you see, my end goal is to leave a positive impact and for me that has happened through making people laugh with my comedy skits and creating employment as you can see already 15 people have jobs because of what I do. Anywhere I can help, even with a single word to a person, then I will do it. My philosophy is if I rise then let me rise with other people," Crazy Kennar disclosed after accepting his third award of the night.
