His death hurt many people to the core and judging dorm the comments on social media and in the media, this comedian was a man who touched people beyond the screens. He was someone genuinely loved by people and his death is not only a blow to his family but Kenyans at large.

After his best friend Paul Ogutu and the president paid tribute to him, the latest person to eulogise the comedian is Maina Kageni who says he first met the comedian on reality show ‘Top Comic.’

“This guy was one of those guys you could see had a bright future,” Maina said in regards to the first impression he had of Ayeiya officially known as Emmanuel Makori.

"He went through a beautiful part of his story from Top Comic to Churchill show. Then he went through a very bad spell and I wondered if he was gonna be okay and he came back, even better than ever.

To his family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. To Ayeiya you know you gave us such great moments it’s impossible to forget you.

What annoys me most me though is his age, when I see young people go at their prime, it just melts me, it’s my biggest regret, but you didn’t argue with God’s will.” He said before asking for Kayamba in Ayeiya’s honour.

His former employer Churchill also said this “Emmanuel Makori will rest this Friday. The good thing about Makori is that he received Jesus as his personal saviour. He was a team leader, very sober very intelligent, we are gonna miss you.”
