Former ‘Churchil Show’ comedian David Kagongo, famously known as David The Student, has returned home after finding life unbearable in the United States.

The comedian, who relocated to the US in search of greener pastures, ended up borrowing heavily from Kenyans in diaspora to make ends meet.

He was also accused of soliciting money using fake stories about his family and promising to pay up later. The amounts borrowed ranged from $50 (Ksh5, 000) to $100 (Ksh10, 000).

He was in mid-August put on the spot by some Kenyans he owes thousands of shillings. One Frank Njoroge took to Facebook to call out the comedian for being a con.

Frank wrote: “I want to notify you of a conman who has given some of us a hard time here in the diaspora. Comedian David the Student has taken money from our pockets in pretense of either his dad is sick of cancer, his relatives hospitalized in a coma and so many other things. I introduced him to the owner of Rafikiz Restaurant in Seattle to host him after he fell out with his promoter Steve Mbugua after he (Steve) received complains from people David has conned in the name of his promoter.”

David later took to social media to clear the air and admitted he owes people money. He said comedy in Kenya doesn’t pay and being famous and broke comes with its price.

“It is true I borrowed money but I have never told anyone my dad has cancer! I apologize to everyone I borrowed and those who lent me money and I’ve not refunded. I take full responsibility and I am ashamed. There’s so much pressure being on TV to live a certain life but in real sense it’s crazy. Comedy in Kenya doesn’t pay.”

Published

on

Citizen TV news anchor Lilian Muli didn’t call Classic 105 FM to talk to popular presenter Maina Kageni about her collapsed relationship. Instead, she found other ways of reaching him and sharing on how things are tough.

Ms Muli took to social media to applaud Maina’s post, a sermon from the renowned pastor TD Jakes, saying that it touched her.

“Inspired by Bishop TD Jakes!!! “You know the story as well as I do, about the boy with 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread, then the Miracle begins to occur…. He’s blessing something that is just not enough!!! You see, until you can be thankful for that which isn’t enough, then what you have CANNOT be multiplied into what is more than enough!!!” “We are CERTAIN that he had 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread, without question…. then HE blessed it… when HE blessed it, HE BROKE IT… that’s when we lose count… we need to understand, therefore, that THE BLESSING IS IN THE BREAKING!!! THAT, THAT WHICH REFUSES TO BE BROKEN, REFUSES TO BE BLESSED!!!! IT IS THE BREAKING OF LIFE, THAT PRODUCES THE BLESSING OF LIFE!!!!” “I have noticed, in my life, that the most BLESSED people I’ve ever met, have all gone through something that broke them!!” Maina posted.

Muli, who is coming off an ugly break up with baby daddy Jared Nevaton who cheated on her with multiple women, confessed to Maina on Instagram the post moved her.
