Johnson Mwakazi recalls the day a friend of his called him when he was driving. What was alarming however was the excitement on his friends voice.
The pal was very happy to hear Mwakazi’s voice and the former TV host could not understand what was going on.
People had spread word that he was dead.
I was driving and someone calls me saying, ‘ooh Johnstone ooh ooh. it’s good to hear your voice!’ I asked what’s happening?
He tells me, ‘Johnson, there is this particular message online…’ so quickly I had to call my wife because I realized if someone called her first it would be a different ball game.
In the past Mwakazi had addressed the rumors clarifying to Kenyans that he was indeed alive.
All is well! I give thanks to God! Kindly, note that rumors that I am dead are not true. I am alive.
Recently Mwakazi opened up on how his life was growing up in Kibra and how his step dad took him in after his parents.
I am the last born in the family of seven. My mum passed away in 2007.
My mum was married before and after my mum passed away my step dad took me in and started bringing me up since 2006.
I am named after my mum’s brother.
