Reggae DJ Chrispinus Odhiambo aka Kriss Darlin on Tuesday explained why he knelt before ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

Speaking during an interview on Radio Maisha, the Kibra MP seat aspirant stated that he knelt out of respect for ‘Baba’, adding that people have different ways of showing respect.

“The media decided to go big on that part only yet I had said so many things that the crowd appreciated.

“That was my way of showing respect as I asked for his blessings in this journey.

“I am a Christian and only God should be worshipped. Do you ask for blessings from your parents in an upright position? You have to humble yourself,” he remarked.

Kriss Darlin knelt before Odinga on Sunday during a public rally at Kamukunji grounds where ODM unveiled candidates seeking the party’s ticket to run for the Kibra seat left vacant after the demise of Ken Okoth.

During the rally, the DJ also stated that he would defend Odinga in parliament since there are many young leaders who are fighting him.

“I have heard that there are many young men in Parliament fighting Baba (Raila), allow me as their fellow youth to go fight them in there as you wait to fight in 2022,” he said.

ODM has submitted 11 names of aspirants to the IEBC and those cleared include Kriss Darlin, Peter Ochieng, Tony Ogola Sira, Reuben Ojijo and Stephen Okello.

Others are Bernard Otieno, Eric Ochieng, Brian Owino, John Otieno, Benson Musungu and Patrick Lumumba Owade.
