Dagoretti South MP John Kiarie also known as KJ while Speaking to Churchill during a special show aired on June 7th, he announced that he was ready to team up with his former partners - Walter Mong'are a.k.a Nyambane and Tony Njuguna, for a one-off show.

He said;

“Why not. It will be awesome. A quick one-off show, we'll talk to Walter and Tony and if they are ready to step into their redykyulass roles I'm in,"

The trio of KJ, Nyambane and Tony was arguably responsible for the success witnessed in Kenya's Comedy industry today.

Their show stood out not just for how their different comedic styles blended into one rib-cracking show, but also because they crossed lines that no one had dared to before.

KJ added;

"Redykyulass first went on air in December 1999. At that time, the political scene was very heated and here we were with a show that had an impersonation of the president.

So NTV took it and before we got to episode 4 it became the most-watched show in Kenya's history,"

They are currently engaged in their own personal careers, with KJ immersing himself in the world of politics, Nyambane serving as a director in charge of Youth Programs and coordination in the Office of the President, and Tony working as a creative director for Scangroup.
