Socialite Amber Ray’s hubby and entrepreneur Jamal Roho Safi has become the talk of the town after the news that the man had married the mother of one.
The inevitable interest in his life has made him a mini-celebrity to many and that has attracted an interview with the popular comedian Jalang’o.
The man had a lot to say, and he explained to the funnyman how he had become one of the most successful men in Kenya.
In an interview on Jalang’o TV, Jamal explained he used his school fees of Ksh 420,000, which he was given by his mom, to buy his first matatu, which he named Telaviv.
He worked both as a matatu tout and a driver for over 2 years. The school fees was meant to pay his fees for pursuing an aviation course at Wilson Airport.
He currently owns over 16 matatus working in different areas of the country. Jamal went further to explain that he always takes advantage of crisis to do business, giving the example of using Michucki’s new rule restrictions that every matatu was supposed to have safety belts and be registered under a Sacco.
He said that at the time, most matatus had refused to comply with the rule, while he did meaning that his business survived while others were waiting.
It was during this period that he made a lot of money since his matatu was the only one in business. Jamal claimed he could make sh30,000 to sh32,000 per day.
And that’s not the only way that he made his money. The man apparently took advantage of coronavirus and became the first person to import face masks when the virus hit. He has now moved to making money online.
