Most of our celebrities have hustled to get to the top. And Oga Obinna is one of the stars who were once broke to a point where he couldn’t afford to pay rent in a Ksh 3,000 house in Kaloleni.
“I was once kicked out of my house in Kaloleni I couldn’t pay rent. It was 3k a month.( 30days I couldn’t raise 3k), ” Obinna wrote on his social media, “I was once a street boy in this same same city. I lived in a salon in Kije (Majengo) with my friend ICY – (he was a rapper). I slept hungry on many occasions. I was the first one in the morning at Industrial Area to offload trucks 90kg maze bags. I put Kebs Tags on Pasta and Macaroni packs then we use to be given the expired ones that we would take with Open Arms to go eat in Makongeni where we lived with Sammy/Kenyatta/Izo/Stevo/Isah and I in Makongeni MixT4 Door4 (6men in 1 room).”
The comedian also highlighted his side hustles to include acting setbooks – for free, rap, dance and perform for free.
“I lived in Fred Omondi’s house for over 6 months, I lived in a single room with Owago and Othuol in South B for 6k and we couldn’t pay. I camped outside Scrath Records daily so that the producer Roba could just record 1 song for me. I did club shows in town for 300-500bob,” he narrated.
Adding that “everyday I try to be a better person. The memory of where I’m from makes me work harder and never give up. I was fired from Nation over 3 years ago (been jobless for over 3 years) but I live better now than when I was employed and tied down to a salary. I’ve thought about committing suicide three times before when I was suffering. But I didn’t.”
What am I saying?? I try to do better nowdays/be better/treat people with respect and kindness because you never know that waiter/watchman/streetboy you are treating badly will be tomorrow. I’ve been down,I’ve been up its never nobody’s liking to beg or to suffer its mostly the situation. I’m nowdays the first one to understand when someone asks me for help.”
He then advised, “It’s not my power!! It’s GOD!! You donno your tomorrow only God knows. Just Work Harder,Smarter be persistent and never loose hope. Tomorrow will be better. Your condition is not permanent. If God raised me..why not You?? And if he raised you why not be a blessing?
Trust the PROCESS!! Pray and DON’T LOOSE HOPE!!”
