HOW ERASTUS AYIEKO OTIENO STARTED COMEDY
After high school, Flaqo raz moved out of his parents’ house to try and discover life. Then, he tried his hand at music but the industry was so flooded making it impossible to easily gain recognition. RnB was his preferred music style and August Alsina was his inspiration. After feeling like his music wasn’t going anywhere, he decided to focus on comedy. He found out most Kenyans love things they can relate with and decided to do relatable content.
How did you start in comedy flaqo 411?
I used to watch Vines, before the app was taken down. I followed King Bach, Kenny Knox and Dope Island. I told my brother that I could do the same. Using a really outdated phone, I’d shoot and edit the videos; switching from one character to the next. When I posted my first video, people who knew me thought I was going crazy because that isn’t how they had known me. erastus ayieko otieno stopped posting but started watching editing videos on YouTube and putting those skills to practice.
Which was your breakout video?
flaqo Raz : I was experimenting on different characters and Mama Otis’ character stood out. I realised people were feeling that “mum vibe” because it seems all mums are like that. People shared it on Facebook, WhatsApp and I was getting so much feedback from it. But that was just from people in my hometown of Kisumu.
How do you develop the characters?
I test them over time. I try to read every comment below my posts, to get people’s minds about every character I introduce. That’s how I know people like seeing this character more and doing certain things. That’s how I ended up with Mama Otis, Bakari the choirmaster, Khaligraph, Eko Dydda and Bahati.
