The comedian currently charges not less than Sh 200,000 to host a gig, has spoken about his humble beginnings from being a ‘shamba boy’ (farmhand) to the celebrity entertainer that he is today. MC Jessy, who hosts Churchill Raw show, says that after completing form four education, he relocated to Nairobi to try and make a living.
He started out by putting up at a former classmate’s parents’ home in Kawangware, where he learned to cook and sell mandazis and chips. After staying with the family for several months, he bumped an old friend who happened to be a son of a Member of Parliament at the time.
Within a short time, he moved to his friend’s family’s residence in a leafy city suburb. On noticing how close he was to his son, the MP, whose identity MC Jessy declined to reveal, decided to employ him as his ‘shamba boy.’ Fast forward. MC Jessy has since made it in life from being a ‘shamba boy’ to one of the most marketable entertainers in Kenya who quickly get signed for advertisement deals with top companies.
Comedian MC Jesse apologizes for an awkward joke on an elderly man
Comedian MC Jesse apologized for a joke gone awry after he suggested that a member of the audience was not good looking. The member of the audience, who has since been identified as Mr. Achoka, was an old man who had attended the Churchill Show edition in Nakuru town. Even worse was how the Churchill Show cameraman zoomed on the graying, bespectacled Mr. Achoka, and his image was showed on the giant screen mounted at the venue.
“Ladies, hello… Hawa machali handsome si Wako peke yako, kuna wengine pia wanawaona…eee…tafuta kimtu tu, Kiko na sura yake, private, sura personal,” MC Jesse had told the audience and sparking laughter.
As this happened, the camera focused on Mr. Achoka, who was even seen frowning. It is then that the comedian realized that his joke had gone overboard and decided to say that he was not talking about Mr. Achoka. “Hapana…no…sio huyo. Hapana, huyo ni,” he said.
The disparaging remark by MC Jesse sparked a heated debate on social media on Monday, with many fans demanding for an apologize. Hours later, the Churchill Raw host issued a poorly written apology, taking full responsibility for the goof.
“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. On behalf of Churchill Show & I, we want to take this apology (sic) to Mzee Achoka, his family, and Kenyans in general. I take full responsibility for the production of this episode that might have gone in bad taste,” tweeted MC Jessy.
