Reknown online comedian Lawrence Masharia popularly known by his stage name Terence Creative has today drafted a touching entreaty to YouTube on behalf of other members of the entertainment industry that have apparently been rendered jobless after the government banned public gatherings and entertainment joints where they used to eke a living.
In the letter, the distraught comedian begged the management of the American owned online video-sharing platform headquartered in San Bruno, California to have mercy on them at this difficult economic times by temporarily excluding their income from taxation.
The funny man who usually shoots skits with his vlogger wife Milly Chebby proposed a grace period of around eight months on content creators from the country.
In support of his sincere request, Terrence cited the existing lockdown having robbed them the gigs they used to enjoy before and the complete shutdown of the entertainment industry.
Although the comedian tagged the organisation's and its Kenyan branch chief executive officer Mrs. Dorothy Ooko, none of them had responded to the letter at the time of writing this article.
Fellow Kenyan entertainers like DJ Shit and Kalekye Mumo join the comedian in the comments section to share their pain while applauding him for taking a step to fight for their welfare.
