“It was heavy. 3 days to the event after we’ve run out of cash it hits us that we forgot to get an MC. I pick up the phone and call this gentleman right here. Mind you we had only met less than 3 times before this day.

“I tell him my story and without thinking twice, he tells me, ‘Bro! Arusi lazima ifanyike. Nitumie details zote, kitu ipigwe!’ He agreed to do it free of charge. I couldn’t believe it. There are good people out here. @drofweneke is definitely one of them.
