Celebrated Kenyan entertainer, Jalang’o (real name Felix Odiwour) has disclosed thet he was paid Ksh2 million (about US$20,000) to MC at former US President Barack Obama’s event in Kogello in 2018.
While speaking in a recent interview with Tanzanian channel Ayo TV, Jalas also revealed that he ordinarily charges KSh500,000 to mc for two hours.
“You also have to pay for my airfare and put me up in a five star hotel,” he said while referring to gigs outside the country.
Obama had travelled to his ancestral village in 2018 to launch the Sauti Kuu Resource Centre founded by his sister Auma Obama.
Speaking about rumours that he is worth Sh10 million, Jalang’o said; “That is just the price of one of my cars; there is a Toyota V8, Mercedes V-Class, Mercedes SLK, Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Velar…But I thank God for everything,” he said.
He added that other than his home in Nairobi and Siaya, he also owns apartments which he rents out as Air BnB units.
