Edwin Butita, stage name Eddie Butita, is a Kenyan musician, comedian, actor, theatre director, voice over artist, emcee, theatre producer, script writer and entrepreneur. The comedian has had tremendous success from a young age. From the very first time he showed up on stage, he managed to capture the attention of so many Kenyans. Today, he has successfully established himself in the industry and draws quite a huge following.
The talented star was born on 16th November 1992 and raised in Kariobangi, Kasarani constituency, Nairobi county. He will turn 28 this year in November.
Eddie Butita is a notable alumni of Butere Boys High School, Kakamega, Western Kenya. He then proceeded to university and pursued graphics design.
The popular personality mastered his comedy and entertainment skills while still in high school. He has since appeared in notable Kenyan comedy shows like:
- Night of a thousand laughs
- Kids Festival
- Kenya Kona Comedy
- Comedy Night
- Laugh Festival
- The Hot Seat
- Kenya’s biggest laugh
- Crazy Monday Comedy Night
- Nescafe Red Sensation Party
- Churchill raw
- Churchill Show
The celebrated comedian’s fame was sealed when he first appeared in the Churchill show in 2010. Despite being his first time on the show, he did such an amazing job that the crowd couldn’t help but fall in love with him. His comedy style involves parodying the ghetto lifestyle in Kenya and many people, especially those in ghetto, can easily relate to his comedy.
Butita also features in “The Trend” show in Nation Television (NTV). He appears as a guest on the weekly show to provide comic relief.
Growth is expected in life as one shouldn’t be stuck in the same place year in and year out just as demonstrated by Edwin.
He went from on stage comedy performances to establishing his own company “Stage Presence Media.” Stage Presence Media limited is a diverse multi media company with expertise in entertainment, PR, content creation, events and marketing. He is also the Chief Executive Officer of the company.
Most expect that after success then the next step is having romantic attachments. The CEO is not married to anyone neither has he come out to clearly state he is in any relationship.
However, for a very long time there have been rumors of an ongoing romance between him and fellow Churchill Show comedian, Mammito. The two have always shared photos of each other and sometimes showed up for events together. When asked about his relationship with Mammito, Butita said she was like a sister.
The multi talented star loved music while in high school, a love that probably still exists. Partnering with DJ Shiti and King Kaka, they released a number called “Kidesign.” The magic Enga production sees Eddie as a big shot entertainer living it up in the club. The video is of very good quality. The rack doesn’t speak of much but is perfect for a night out with friends.
His exact net worth is not known but he has been a YouTuber since 2013 and below is his estimated YouTube earnings:
February 2020 – $1
January 2020 – $2
December 2019 – $3
November 2019 – $5
October 2019 – $7
September 2019 – $37
He has a total of 12,300 subscribers and the 17 videos uploaded on his channel have garnered a total of 684,744 views to date.
The funnyman’s wealth is definitely not from YouTube but from other sources, such as his company.
