Many Kenyans tend to forget that before some of the celebs that we adore and cherish got to the top, some of them had struggles that are a stark contrast to the glam lives they now live.
Celebrated comedian MC Jessy is one of those personalities who knew lack before he became the household name he is at the moment.
The comic who has a naughty smirk for the ages recently shared more about his early struggles, dropping a yet unknown story about a man who helped him on his way up.
Jessy whose real names are Muthomi explained how legendary Kenyan singer David Mathenge popularly known as Nameless helped him.
The entertainer explained on his Jessy Junction how much help Nameless had been to him when he was just starting out, helping him with clothes to perform when he needed them.
He went ahead and shared a TBT photo rocking a T-shirt he was gifted by Nameless a few years ago.
“Today I just want to appreciate one person who has seen every step of my life. At one point of my life when I had 2-3 t-shirts to wear,this man @namelesskenya allowed me to raid his closet and pick anything I wanted. I used to be mtu wa mkono for this good friend of mine Juvinaris Chalo (extreme left). We used to go and roll dredi za Nameless and that’s where we knew each other. If there’s one generous family I have come across is the Mathenges. @wahukagwi I still miss zile tumbikiza zako 😂Thank you for believing in me.” shared MC Jessy.
The Churchill show comedian also praised Nameless’s family, saying they are the most generous family he has ever come across.
For those of you who aren’t aware, Jessy has had some tough experiences in his life. One of those was when his mother passed on the eve before he was to sit KCPE exams while his father passed on at a young age.
“My father passed on a long time ago, I never lived with him for long. I saw him three times in my life” he told Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central.
“I grew up with my mum after my father passed on, attending Embu County School. During the KCPE rehearsals, my mother passed on. KCPE exams were on Tuesday my mum passed on that Monday. I sat for exams then that Friday I went to Meru and we buried her on Saturday. KCPE for me was a sad time,” he narrated.
