- The comedian who is known for his rib-breaking antics says he made the decision and now he was going to serve God for the remaining days of his life.
Veteran entertainer Amir Athuman aka King Majuto has finally decided to call it a day after 30 years in the entertainment industry.
The comedian who is known for his rib-breaking antics says he made the decision and now he was going to serve God for the remaining days of his life.
“As far as I am concerned I am done with arts I am now back in my village where I will serve the Almighty to forgive me of my sins. There are many things that we as artistes do some are good but others don’t please God. In most cases those bad things become part of one’s youth and that is why we have to pray to God.”
He however said that in the event of an opportunity of doing a commercial he will turn up but he will immediately go back home to his native Tanga.
“I have my equipment here but I have decided to leave this job to my children who can now take over from where I stopped,” he said.
Majuto 69 who served in the Tanzania Peoples Defence Forces and a fireman for over 20 years says he started his career in the 1980s while with the Ports authority in Tanga.
But his breakthrough came at DDC kibisa in 1983; he later joined Muungano Cultural Troupe before heading to Nairobi with his own troupe.
His travels later took him to Tanzania One Theatre where he worked with the late Captain John Komba.
He however says that he only realised something out of arts after he became an independent artist.
