“My parents died when I was nine years old, and the same year, I started smoking. I became a street kid for seven years and at that age, I started using drugs. I was a chokoraa but at least I knew how to speak English.
“I sold scrap metals as well and I became a thug. I would snatch bags from people and steal side mirrors za gari za watu,” he said during an interview on Radio Jambo.
The comedian was rescued from the streets and taken to Mully Children’s home where he was provided with shelter, education and love.
“Wakati wa Mungu God is good. This was me 19 years ago, I had high hopes in life. Thank you @mullychildrens_family for accepting me, giving me an education, love and a place to call home. I am proud to be an alumni and a responsible member of the society,” he wrote.
The social media influencer celebrated four years since giving up smoking in March with an encouragement to his fans.
“I have not smoked for four years. It is exactly four years 25 days since I quit tobacco. I feel happy that I get to encourage more youths in the war against tobacco,” he wrote in part.
