How JB Masanduku lost his BBC job for being an alcoholic

Comedian JB Masanduku says he lost many jobs among them BBC in 2017 because of being an alcoholic.

In the second episode of ‘Jack in the Box on Instagram’ hosted with his wife Jackie Karanja, JB revealed that he was unable to keep his job at the station as he was struggling with the alcohol addiction.

Masanduku has in the passed opened up about his 3-year long battle with alcoholism that ended up costing him his marriage to Tina Kaggia, his finances and the lucrative jobs.

The Comedian claims that he was making up to Kshs. 300,000 at the job.

“This one day I’m supposed to host comedian Njugush but I did not appear,” he said.

Instead of going to work, he passed somewhere had some drinks and before he knew it, he had missed the show.

“The girl I was with at the time cheered me on,” he said.

He added that by the time he was getting back to his senses, he found that Njugush had decided to ‘interview himself’.

To save his job, Masanduku sought the services of a medical doctor around Ngara area in Nairobi to give him a leg cast which would demonstrate a supposed injury to the leg.

This was to justify why he missed the show.

“I told the doctor, I have Ksh20,000, I need you to put a cast on my leg and say I was hit by a motorbike,” Masanduku explained.
His employer was tired and so he could not listen to him, they knew he was out drinking.

“Even if you come here in an ambulance, you are not professional. We all drink and we knew you were drunk. You are the most stunning comedian but the drink will be the end of you,” he said

“He didn’t even have remorse for me while I was in a wheelchair,” Masanduku added.

“If I could get another opportunity like that…” he concluded.

JB is now engaged to Jackie and are living together.

Celebrity couples who we wish were still married (List)

Most of Kenya’s celebrity divorce stories are sad especially when it comes to their financial life,however  divorce is inevitable .

We have celebrities whose break ups left us with a bitter taste in the mouth because according to us they were a ‘perfect match’ made in heaven.

Here is a list of 7 celebrity  couples who we still wish were together.

Revealed: Here is where Betty Kyallo got money to start her salon

  1. Betty Kyalo and Dennis Okari

This comes as number our number one on the list. Well, they were the hottest celebrity couple that we all looked up too. No sooner had we fallen in love with them than they called it quits.

The stories on their break up are so many, with each blaming the other. Every day brings a new angle and different story in regards to their very sudden separation.

The two are still very influential personalities when it comes to journalism.

They have a daughter.

2.  Lonina Leteipan and Sharon Mundia

This falls as number two because just after Betty and Dennis, this was the fastest and saddest break-up.

Remember the guy who decided to hire a chopper and propose on Mt. Kenya? Yeah, Lonina is his name. So after all the hustle and a great wedding, six months down the line they were over and done with each other.

The biggest rumor being Sharon decided to have a threesome without him so he was like, ‘not today Satan, not ever!’ And that was the end of the power couple.

They have a daughter together.

I know, it all started all rosy and gold then a sudden slap on the face.

3. Shaffie Weru and Debbie Asila

The two are what we would call the mother and father of celebrity couples. They set the standards for everyone on this list when they proved we can both be celebrities and have a happily ever after(okay other than Nameless and Wahu of course).

I guess the nation spoke too soon, next thing we know Shaffie and Debbie have a daughter then we hear she has flown to the states and they are over.

Well, their sad story has never really come out, but we were all surprised when their break up was out to the public. Despite that, they did not have such a sad ending as they have an amazing daughter who stays with Debbie but Shaffie still plays the daddy role.

4. DNG and Yvette Nungari

Another very sudden separation. DNG was the man every lady thirsted to have. When Yvette won the race, many women were saddened.

Maybe the fact that he was on demand got to his head too fast and according to the rumors out there, he used to cheat a lot. Yvette could not take it anymore so she called it quits.

That was Yvette’s story, according to DNG, he called it quits saying he married a pretty woman with a cold heart and an even worse personality. Sounds weird because we would expect him to have known all about her personality before he decided she is the one.

5. JB Masanduku and Tina Kaggia

Every time this story comes up, I see Tina Kaggia crying. She went through a hard time in a marriage that she claims was alcohol based. Tina has repeatedly said it to the public that JB Masanduku never handled his alcohol right.

This made Tina Kaggia fall into depression but from her last TV interview, she seems to be doing okay, taking one step at a time.

JB, on the other hand, found love elsewhere and he has been flaunting it on social media. We hope his new fling lasts longer.

They did not spend so much money on their wedding as compared to Dennis and Lonina’s love story as they just went to the AG and made things legal.

They have three children together.

6. J Blessing and Chantelle


This one is dramatic. The two got married and had a child who passed away. This gave both J Blessing and Chantelle sleepless nights and of course all sorts of emotions.

Next thing on the grapevines, J Blessing left allegedly because Tina cheated on him. J Blessing is a hot cake as from his current scandals. He is the dad on the block, the baby mama rumored to be Avril.

Just like that J Blessing and Chantelle were no more but they seem to be looking for love elsewhere so we can outrightly say, wako sawa!

7. MC Jessy and Elizabeth Nyambura

Last but not least is Mc Jessy. This is one is sad. They had an amazing wedding which was filled with laughter, love, friends and family.

MC Jessy started getting too cozy with Shixs Kapienga and boom! Elizabeth and Jessy are no more. Shixs is and has always been his one and only. The question is why did he waste 6 years of love with Elizabeth if he knew his fate was Shixs? I know so sad!

MC Jessy and Elizabeth have a son together.

Comedian JB Masanduku opens up about being a victim of domestic violence

They were the showbiz IT couple for some time. They made us hope and believe that our own love lives could become like theirs. The couple had a whirlwind romance and ended up getting married.

The discreet ceremony was held at the Attorney General’s Chambers on October 1, 2013 and attended by close family and friends. It should be noted that none of JB’s family showed up for the ceremony. That right there should have been a big red flag. Eight months later, the couple welcomed their son into the world.  Yet by then, unknown to many, the clouds had already started gathering.

So begun the JB and Tina marriage, with little fanfare but with big Kenyan stars at the helm. The marriage had many highs, but the lows were numerous and embarrassing for those involved. One minute we would be inundated with info that they were on a glorious vacation and all-smiles, then another they would be fighting.

Uncle Chim Tuna wrote a story a couple of years back about Tina allegedly physically abusing JB at a popular Westlands club. They both denied that this had happened.

Things got so bad that in March 2014, Tina moved out. It was the first time she’d had to make this difficult decision, mostly for the interests of the children. But JB has now come out to set the record straight, speaking to Mpasho exclusively, he narrated how he had been physically abused by Tina while they were together. Yaani, alikuwa anatandikwa kama burukenge!

This was contrary to what Tina alluded to in an interview to the Pulse. She said:


But JB in the exclusive interview with Mpasho that he had never treated Tina in a way that would put her in danger:



When asked about a recent Instagram post that seemed to be an apology of sorts, JB Masanduku said:


There you have it, people. Who is lying and who is telling the truth? The phrase, that a coin has two sides is very relevant to this story.
