• In a video message posted on Wednesday, the self-proclaimed 'content cartel' said it's something that he has been mulling over the past six years.
• "In my head, I believe that this dream is possible, and personally I promise that I'm going to give a performance of a lifetime," he said.
Popular digital content creator Kennedy Odhiambo popularly known as Crazy Kennar has announced that he will for the first time in his comic career go live on stage in December.
In a video message posted on Wednesday, the self-proclaimed 'content cartel' said it's something that he has been mulling over the past six years.
"This year I want to do something that is so scary to me, I have been thinking about it for the past six years and I want to do a live show on stage," he said.
Kennar has built a name for himself and gained a massive following in the digital space for creating short skits depicting everyday life moments in a comical fashion.
"I want to actualise digital comedy into live stage comedy, a show that will have 6,000 people in attendance this December. In my head, I believe that this dream is possible, and personally, I promise that I'm going to give a performance of a lifetime," he added.
Kennar said the live stage performance will be an opportunity for him to "have an intimate connection" with his fans for the very first time since he started creating content in January 2017.
He asked his fans whom he acknowledged for giving him the drive whenever he thought of quitting the trade to support the initiative like they have always done over the years.
"I never thought of how big I could grow, I never even imagined the opportunities that I could get. I never even in my wildest dreams imagined that I could leave the country to go and shoot content but all this has been possible because of the support you guys have given me up to date," he said.
Kennar was recently in South Africa on a content-shooting mission where he met former The Daily Show presenter Trevor Noah.
"The future belongs to the people who believe in the beauty of their dreams," he said in a caption to a photo of him and the writer and comedian.
"I remember meeting a parent and she told me that 'Kennar, you are my child's role model and you are a blessing to this generation. I walk with that message daily and when I think of quitting content creation or when it crosses my mind, I remember I'm a blessing to this generation," he added.
Kennar will, however, not be venturing into uncharted waters as he contends taking digital content on live stage.
Timothy Kimani Ndegwa, popularly known as Njugush, and his bosom buddy Abel Mutua aka Mkurugenzi, are pioneers who transitioned digital content to live stage performance.
Njugush has to date held several sold-out shows on home soil and abroad including in the UK and Australia while Abel has replicated the same on home tuff with his storytelling prowess.
