Kenyan comedian Blessed Njugush has narrated how a tweet by Oscar winning actress Lupita Nyongo changed his life.
According to Njugush, twitter a big wig had criticized them for acting in the show ‘The real house helps of Kawangware’.
The big wig compared the show to those that Lupta Nyongo has acted, saying Njugush and his fellow actors would never reach her level.
Speaking during an interview with cleaning the Airwaves, Njugush shared
‘When you start something people will always discourage you.
When we started shooting Real House helps of Kawangware there is a big wig who tweeted blasting us for producing ‘show ya mamboch.’
‘wanafanya show ya maboch na wanataka kufika level ya Lupita Nyongo? Hawawezi fika by creating such shows.
At the time Lupita had won an Oscar.
‘A few months later I woke up to congratulatory messages on checking why I saw Lupita had tweeted saying she was watching our show.
Watching Real House helps of Kawangware. God bless Njugush.’ Lupita tweeted.
At the time I was called Funny Njugush after Lupita’s tweet is when I changed my name to Blessed Njugush. We therefore worked hard on the show till it became the most watched show on TV.’
Njugush added that a year later he met the bigwig at an event and he was disgusted at his pretence.
‘I later met that big wig at an event and he greeted me saying vile anapenda my work, kazi gani? akwende huko’
His advice to people starting a project
