Jalang'o, Tanasha Donna and Prezzo are among celebrities who have come out to set the record straight following damning allegations by popular gossip blogger Edgar Obare that cast aspersions on how they make their money.
Radio Presenter and comedian Felix Odiwuor, popularly known as Jalang’o, said he never thought someone would question how he made his money.
“I never ever thought, that one day somebody will ever question my integrity and how I make my money and accuse me or write something that makes me look like a fraud,” explained Jalang’o.
He added: “On my father’s grave, I have never ever stolen from anyone neither have I ever gotten involved in fraudulent or unscrupulous deals. To me, it has always been hustle and it has never changed, if it was that easy to make money then everybody would.”
The comedian even went ahead and mentioned his sources of wealth among them being a brand ambassador for multiple companies, hosting events, running a media agency and being a radio presenter.
Singer Tanasha Donna, also took to Instagram and rubbished the claims, terming them fabricated lies.
“I’m not one to address things but YO! All these false rumours be getting out of control. How does someone wake up one day and decide to fabricate a fake story just for attention?” Tanasha wrote.
The Gere hitmaker, whose blue BMW was at the centre of the allegations, said she works hard to earn everything she has achieved.
“I work hard and very hard for my s**t! Everything I own today I bought with my own hard-earned money and sweat. Don’t involve my name in y’all BS. Some of y’all are sickening. Sickening,” she added.
Rapper Jackson Ngechu Makini, alias Prezzo, posted a cryptic on Instagram saying; “Fellow Kenyans, the only tea ya'll should rely on is the tea from Kericho. Story za osha osha mwachieni huyo Dish washer!”
Over the weekend, controversial blogger Edgar Obare became the talk of town on Twitter following his claims.
Since then, however, Obare has gone silent after his Instagram account was deactivated, worrying many of his fans.
“My main account has been deactivated, working to get it restored. Meanwhile we already prepared for such outcomes and I can also be posting here,” wrote Obare on his other account, Bnnke.
