Larry Asego is one of the most celebrated radio personalities in Kenya and he’s not all about the voice, he has a lot of other thing going on in his life outside the studio.
The funny guy is known for his humorous stories and comments on his rush hour show with his partner in crime Nick Odhiambo.
Together, they make the best duo in their Nick, Larry and Friends show to boost your mood after a long day at work with great music that is accompanied by hilarious jokes and in case you’ve never tuned in, you’re missing out on a lot.
Other than spending his time entertaining listeners on Larry, Nick, and Friends, Larry Asego is also a professional photographer who loves taking photos of nature and animals, documenting them on his profile and social media.
Nick Odhiambo and Larry Asego are always full of surprises when it comes to their show Larry, Nick and Friends, but the best part is the fact that they will find a way to bring humor.
The two top radio presenters have a way to make any topic or conversation funny and this time, they decided to talk about ladies who have a lot of pillows on their bed.
Honestly, ladies like to accessorize their beds with a lot of pillows and even sofa sets for comfort and also because they add a touch of glamor and elegance more so in a big bed.
Larry Asego and Nick Odhiambo don’t understand how women have close to 12 pillows in one bed.
But according to Nick, this only happenshows to women who live in posh surbarbs because they have plenty of rooms and big beds that can fit a number of pillows but this cannot happen to people leaving in ghettos like Kayole.
Nick Odhiambo clarified in the hilarious audio why a man in Kayole would never buy a pillow, leave alone buy 12 pillows for a bed or sofa.
He jokingly said that guys in Kayole would not waste money to buy a pillow since they can use old newspapers to lie on or use a car tyre to sleep on. Oh, men, it’s just too hilarious.
This one will definitely make you laugh out loud even on a bad day.
Kenyan music has over the years improved in terms of the fan base, and popularity.
In the last couple of years, some of the local artistes have propelled the industry to whole new levels, with the likes of Sauti Sol, Victoria Kimani, Eric Wainaina and Stella Mwangi, just to mention a few.
But before musicians such as Octopizzo and Elani, there were other old school artistes, some of whom are still in the game and going, while others just faded into oblivion, and sadly, others left us soon.
Back in the 80s and 90s, the Kenyan music industry was well represented by the likes of Kalamashaka, legendary singer E-sir, K-Rupt, Them Mushrooms, Fundi Konde, Mercy Myra, Nameless, Wahu, Jua Cali, Nazizi, Wyre, Les Wanyika and Nameless and others.
Most of these musicians were renowned artistes, and some of them like Nameless, Wahu and Jua Cali are still in the game but according to Nick Odhiambo and Larry Asego, there are those kinds of artistes who used to sing Kenyan songs that just didn’t make sense.
During their evening show Larry, Nick and Friends, the duo made fun of artistes who drop songs that don’t even have a meaningful message or sensible lyrics.
One of the Kenyan songs the presenters made a fun of was Manyake, which was sung by one hit-maker Circuit and Joel, as the funny guys said that he was suited to be chairman of National Cereals and Produce Board other than a singer.
This two are too hilarious. Listen to the rib-cracking audio below as they make fun of the songs.
