Martin Kamotho, alias Gotheriman, has come out to defend himself against claims that he is languishing in alcohol addiction following an image that went viral on Sunday.

Speaking to K24 Digital, Githeriman noted that he was putting his acting skills into practice when someone photographed him.

In the photo which went viral, Githeriman could be seen “dead-drunk” on a trolley.

He stated: “I did not do anything wrong. If anything, it was me who asked to be put on a trolley. I am a comedian, and I wanted to entertain my people by pretending that I am a wealthy man being ‘chauffeured around’.”
