I was warned against building my mother a house – Comedian Jalang’o

Published

Comedian Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o has revealed that he was warned against building his mother a house.

Addressing Alex Mwakideu, Jalang’o narrated that after his father passed away, he decided to build his mother a house but was told it was against Luo traditions.

Jalang’o explained that according to the Luo, it was taboo for him to build her house and flouting it meant courting death.

The only remedy, he said, was for her to get another man before moving to the house. The funny bone, however, shrugged the demands aside and went ahead.

Mwakideu mimi naweza kwambia hakuna kitu kama uganga. Hakuna kitu kama hiyo. Sijawahi amini kwa sababu unajua kuna zile tamaduni za ndani kabisa ambazo watu wanakuambia hii haiwezi fanyika kabla hii ifanyike. Kama wajaluo tuko na utamaduni mwingi sana ya kwanza ilikuwa siwezi mjengea mamangu nyumba.

“Nikawaambia kama mungu ambaye namatumikia ataniua kwa sababu nimemjengea mamangu nyumba, wacha nife. Mpaka sahii nangoja kufa kwa sababu nimemjengea mamangu nyumba.

“Kwa sababu wanasema kijana mkubwa ndio anafanya sijui nini na unapomjengea kwa sababu babako alikufa lazima apate mzee mwingine ndio awe mzee wa kambo ndio aweze kumtoa mama kwa nyumba yake kwenda kwa hio ingine…

“So mimi na kichwa yangu mbaya nikamnunulia mamangu shamba na nikamjengea watu wa kijiji wakalia najiingiza kwa shida nikawaambia wacha nife. Mpaka sahii niko na wewe hapa,” said Jalang’o.

Touted as one of the richest radio presenters in the republic, Jalang’o lost his father just hours after landing his first gig at Kiss 100.

“When my dad died he told me one thing, I have a letter from my dad before he died because I could not even afford to go bury my dad when he died.

“The same day I got my very first gig at Kiss 100 is the same day my dad died. Caroline called me and told me Jalang’o you are replacing Nyambane when she hung up my mom called and told me your dad is gone. That’s how sad it was for me,” he narrated.

Sh60 million house: At home with Ringtone

Published

on

Ringtone, this gospel star that has brought you hits like Muziki ni Dawa, Gospel Inabamba, Maisha and last year’s massive hit Tenda Wema has a larger-than-life image.

Aside from his state-of- the-art rides, he boasts a maisonette in the leafy suburbs of Runda. However, this time round Pulse sneaks into his other home in Karen, a ten-bedroom crib, where we do the quick fire.

Pulse: This property is worth more than Sh60 million which could really be a huge sum for an artiste. Just how did you acquire it?

Ringtone: That is a good question. The owner had actually abandoned this property for years and so by the time I was getting the house, the prize had depreciated. I had to do a lot to bring it to its current state.

P: How big is the land it stands on?

R: This is a half an acre.

P: You are still young and single: How on earth do you use ten bedrooms?

R: (Laughs): It is rather obvious that I cannot sleep in ten different bedrooms. As you might be aware, I support a number of children homes and so to raise money for that, when I get foreign guests, I allow them to stay over for bed and breakfast and then the proceeds I get from that I put into charity.

P: What stands out most…for you?

R: I should say everything stands-out. Every bedroom is different from the other in terms of design and the furniture we have in there.

I have a Jacuzzi in my master bedroom as well as a reading area, which I have also converted into prayer room. The bathtubs are also modern.

A view of the living room from the dining room

P: We notice that the living room as well as the dining area is colourful. What informed that design aspect?

R: I have a professional designer who fits everything. Basically, like I have said, you will get a different mood in every room.

Living room

P: Why won’t you use the house for showbiz; like put up a studio or a music school?

P: This is a home and I live in a residential area where we don’t allow such. The only time I have many visitors coming in is when I am throwing a party for the children I support.

P: Is this your dream home?

R: I thank God for this property and I continue to believe him for better. He says in his word; “Ask and you shall be given…seek and you shall find…”
