Govi responds to claims that he has quit ‘Machachari’

After sections of media claimed last week that popular Machachari actor Malik Lemuel better known as Govi is quitting the program, the talented teen star has come out to dispel the rumours.

Reports stated that Govi “intends to pursue big projects in Kenya and even bigger projects in Hollywood”, hence his reason to quit the children’s show.

The reports added that Govi addressed a media interview where he revealed that “he has quit Machachari.”

“The young actor has set high standards for himself and he is currently building up on his YouTube profile through his channel to help him grow his brand,” reported a section of the media.

“…the former Machachari actor added that he will also continue with his education,” added the outlet.

Govi has now responded to the claims, saying he hasn’t and won’t quit Machachari anytime soon.

“Thanks sana mafans for the hundreds of inboxes nimeget about mimi kuquit Machachari, he he hata mimi iyo story nimeionea na kuiskia hapa tu kwa Internet, am here to assure you first in command bado yuko kwa kipindi vifyam! Mskonde! Tuko pamoja wasee entertaining you to the fullest (Thanks a lot fans for the hundreds of inbox messages I have received from you inquiring if I have quit Machchari. I too read the story on the internet. I am here to assure you that ‘first in command’ is still acting in the program; worry not! I am with you; entertaining you to the fullest),” wrote Govi on Facebook.


“Govi has not quit the local drama. I don’t know where the reports came from. I find them amusing,” said Machachari’s producer, Naomi Kamau.

Malik Lemuel is now a form one student at Consolata High School.

Machchari is a local drama that airs on Citizen Television every Friday at 7:30PM. It highlights the welfare, plight and issues that affect children in current society.

Govi acts as the brother to another top teenage actor, Kamau Mbaya (Baha).
