Former Machachari actor Malik Lemmy popularly known as Govi became a trending topic the past week when he posted some photos showing off his new and improved fashion.
The thing that got many people surprised is that in the photos, he could be seen rocking high heel boots circa 1970’s fashion.
His style got many concerned that he might be living an alternate lifestyle, something that Govi was quick to shut down in a recent interview with Jalang’o.
He explained that the idea had come from his photographer and insisted that he is as straight as they come. “Mbona umeanza kuvaa nguo ya wamama?” Asked Jalang’o.
Govi replied; “We had a conversation with my designer, I told him give me sneakers akasema hapana chocha, onyesha watu wewe ni nani. Mimi naenda kupiga picha hivi na turn naangalia mguu iko na high heels…hapo Muma pix ashaanza kupiga picha and they told me hii itauza…Juu nikavaa kama Mwanaume, chini umama ikachukua.
Lakini its very funny ati mtu anaweza kaa chini aone at wewe ni Gay, am the straightest man you will ever meet. And actually I have never thought naweza kaa chini kuanza kuhave a conversation about mimi kuwa gay.”
Adding “Ndio maana mimi huambia mafans, unaweza jipata kwa mix up ya watu na wao wanapiga showbiz…because hiyo hate and love zikimix inakuwa success.”
He also explained that his exit from the popular Citizen TV show was supposed to be for him to grow out of the name Govi-which ironically he is still remembered for.
“…turuke hizo miaka zote tuingie 2019, when I quit my job, I wasn’t sacked…I left Machachari and I was never sacked…and that why I always appreciate our Chairman Dr. SK Macharia and his wife, Latiffah Ngunjiri and my producer Naomi Kamau. Mimi hukuwa nimewa-respect sana, because they taught us to be family. That’s one thing many shows lack in Kenya,” said Govi in part.
