Dr Ofweneke has opened up and spoken about a time when he was dirt poor.
“At this point torn between the dream of being a top comedian and a top city lawyer at the same time 😆😆😆😆😆I think my neighbours thought I was gay because they never saw any girl come to my place but why would I bring her when she was all I had 🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️😜😜😜😜😜😜,” Dr Ofweneke joked.
The TV comedian and event host highlighted his story after a photo of a one roomed house – scantily furnished – went viral online.
This photo moved Dr Ofweneke to the point where he revealed that the room is similar to one he lived in when he was working at an MPesa shop.
“Waaaaaah!! When I saw this photo on IG, I just couldn’t stop but thank God for this far I have come, 8 years ago with my first jobo as an MPesa agent, this is how my first ever house in Kangemi looked like ☺☺☺☺☺.”
Dr Ofweneke detailed what was in his house.
“A Kaluworks green stove, 2 sufurias, a curtain that really wasn’t hiding anything, two stainless steel spoons, a mattress that felt like sleeping on Supa Loaf slice of bread, an LG phone that costed 1,499/= which was a torch at the same time my home theatre.”
“We would share a bathroom with almost 5 other neighbours so you’d find me with my towel and soap dish at the queue just like everybody else freezing like a thin sausage. I would never lock the house at times even when am sleeping because, I mean, what are the thieves coming to steal unless maybe steal my problems 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️”
“See me now!!” Dr Ofweneke said in wonder, “A top comedian wearing suits like a top lawyer!! MY GOD GOT SWAG, HE SWAGGED ME UP 😎😎😎😎 There has to be a BREAK before the BREAKTHRU 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾”
He also posted a disclaimer, “This is not the original photo of my house.”
