Enough! We will not die of depression and hunger – Comedian Paul Kimani tells govt.

Last week I spoke to comedian Paul Kimani commonly known as MCA Tricky. He spoke candidly about the way the government had handled the Covid-19 pandemic especially as pertains to entertainers.

He was frustrated and upset with Serikali telling me, “Those guysย should open up the country. And that isn’t, please. I will say that I am not a politician but the government isn’t cognisant about what is happening on the ground”

Adding, “They don’t know. Let me speak from experience. If there is a department that has been forgotten is art and talent in the country. We are treated like we don’t exist. Event organisers have closed their eyes like they don’t see.”

Paul said that the experience had nearly made him think of mobilising other entertainers together, as they pay taxes.

“I nearly even became a mobiliser to call all artists, we have a press conference where we speak. We have the right, we pay the taxes. The government should also look into me. They are looking at doctors and boda bodas, they should also look into me. Talent in Kenya, starting from sports, people who run. people who play football, musicians, comedians and even the acrobats we see on the streets. Where do we expect these people to make money from?”

He even explained how some other entertainers he knew were hiding their jobs because of how hard it was to get permits to work.

“For example, I have some MC’s I know, who are not in the limelight that you don’t know about who do ruracio’s every weekend. At the moment they are afraid to do that because the government might come for them. At the moment if you go for a license for an event, you are disturbed, you have to beg and if you fail to speak well, you won’t be given,” he said.

He summarised by calling out the government while asking other artistes to stand up to its oppressive policies.

“The whole system has failed us. There is no room for artists. They should open the country and when they do that they should support the talented kids all the way up.

They should even remove the taxes they have placed. Imagine they put a digital tax, after many artists went in that direction to try and rescue themselves from all the restrictions.

I call out all the artists in the country to stand up and speak without fear. Enough is enough. We will not die of depression and hunger, have our houses locked because of people who aren’t thinking about us.”

“You can’t be Kabi WaJesus, hujui anfanya nini!” Comedian Paul Kimani’s advise to youth

Comedian Paul Kimani is one man on a mission to leave his mark on the world. The popular social media funny-man and I recently spoke and he was open and honest.

One area the man impressed me with was his goals for 2021. And not just making money. Nope, Tricky wants to tackle some serious social issues afflicting the youth.

He told me, “I work with an NGO that deals with mental health and we go around institutions. Youth in Generationย Z are being bombarded and manipulated by social media and it is affecting their mental health. People are been affected by the pressures and people are dying from depression.”

Paul went deeper explaining the problem the youth are facing saying that they go around talking about the effects of social media.

“It is affecting many youngsters. Someone is going to Campus and he wants to be like Otile Brown. Just because they see me passing with a Subaru, now he wants to have one the next day. I am a brand that relates with that age demographic so well. I think my biggest crowd is the one for campus and high school. You never know who you will touch,” he said.

Another area he was focusing on wasย relationships and over-ambitiousness. “When you are in campus, you want to treat your lady the way you see Butita treating Mammito or the way Bahati is treating Diana Marua and at that moment you don’t have supper.”

He drilled his point further telling me, “You can’t be Kabi WaJesus, you don’t know what he is doing. What many don’t know is that celebs are living a lie. They don’t know the journey some of us (celebs) have been through.”

And what had made him set the social goals he was speaking out about? He responded that he hadย nearly found himself falling into that situation and that’s when he had just become popular as Tricky.

“Like, ‘I don’t have a car but I can see Dr. Ofweneke driving a Benz.’ At first, I thought it was my desire to succeed but I discovered that there is a thin line between the craving for being successful and hurting oneself. Dreaming big is good but don’t overdo it cause it can crush you. I found myself in that situation. Now imagine a student who is on campus who has no income?” he finished.

Niliomoka! Humble comedian Paul Kimani says about his blessed 2020(exclusive)

Paul Kimani Njoroge aka MCA Tricky is one of the best and most influential comedians inย  Kenya. The man has been working hard to leave his mark on the industry.

In a recent interview with the comedian, Tricky spoke about the previous year. He concluded that it was one of his best years so far.

“2020 was my biggest year for me. As an artist, this was the year I nearly omokad! Me I can’t place myself with other people who had a tough year. God can be upset with me. God opened for me doors that I didn’t expect. I got a radio job and I got several big endorsements. I want to say thank you to those guys who trusted me when every artist was down, they stood with me.”

And what was the reason for this?

“The way the country closed down due to Covid-19 restrictions, clients and advertisers moved to the digital space because the mainstream methods were a little restricted. Today, I can say I am proud that my brand was seen by the biggest of all, from Multichoice in South Africa, GoTv and DSTV and I am still working with them. From the time Corona came, these brands started working with me and they are still working with me. Safaricom and Tecno were also there with me all through.”

He attributed his success to the way he had been able to position himself digitally before the pandemic hit Kenyans.

“The success happened to the brands that were strong on the interwebs. You can see all the years that I had invested in the past, paid off. It was a blessing in disguise all the work I had done on my digital platforms.”

But while the comedian is happy with his own successes that doesn’t mean he isn’t cognisant of the ways some other Kenyans have been struggling.

“The only reason I cannot celebrate it so much is that this life isn’t an individual one. I can see the cries from my friends, close friends and people in my neighbourhood, the way people have been affected. So I wasn’t happy with that aspect.”

And what were his plans for this year? “On a personal level, it was good…Omokaing is number one. This year I have dedicated it to two things; First, I want to rebrand. I want to get back to stand-up comedy like never before.”

Si Rue Baby! MCA Tricky raises eyebrows after professing love for woman online(image)

Comedian MCA Tricky is causing much confusion online after one of his recent Instagram posts. The man confessed hisย undying love for a lady named Helena Talaso.

Taking to his social media pages on Facebook and Instagram, Tricky shared a photo of a beautiful lady in a graduation gown and gushed over her on end.

Tricky is known to joke a lot and so many wondered whether the lady could be his significant other or he was just joshing?

His caption read;

“I love this lady to my bones but she wonโ€™t admit , .check out her works Helena Talaso. You were meant for greatness gal , may ALLAH shade blessings to your life babe! Full stop.”

One reason the post caused many raised eyebrows among Kenyans is the fact that Tricky and Akothee’s daughter have been hinting that they might be together.

Oddly enough the funny man disabled comments on his Instagram page while he deleted the post on his Facebook page. Many people who had commented on his Facebook post concluded Tricky may have broken up with Rue Baby.

While people might be focused on Rue Baby, I am more concerned with the other lady that Tricky was dating in 2018 and 2019.

In a previous interview with me back in 2019, the comedian said that he was dating a woman called Renee. At the time he said that the two had been together for 2 years.

The artist said that Renee had been with him even before he became the celeb he is. He said that she was the one who had pursued a relationship with the budding comedian at the time, even if he was still struggling to get into the industry.

MCA Tricky and Akothee have been engaged in a playful back and forth after it emerged that Tricky might be dating the songstress’s daughter – something I am sure isn’t happening.

And it seems that it will go on longer as Tricky decided to respond to Akothee with a rather humorous post. In the post, the comedian put Rue baby under the bus, absolving himself from any issue that might have popped up due to their relationship.

Someone tell @akotheekenya this !!!! Word going round ati ooh sijui your daughter oooh @rue.baby is under siege courtesy of me, let me state it categorically, unapologetically & synergetically that this lady besides me is the #problem ,, so deal with the problem madam boss ,not my hair!!!!

Tricky is clearly not taking any prisoners with his savage response to Akothee. Don’t forget that a few days back Akothee had threatened to shave his hair, saying that men with such hair were troublesome.

“@rue.baby if you think of dating a man let him shave his hair please @mcatricky, you will not ask for double saloon money ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ men with this kind of hair is troubles,โ€ she said.

In a video the singer posted on her Instagram page, Akotheeย put a caption telling her daughter that if she thought of dating, she needed to date a man who was bald because men with such kind of hair (locks) were troublesome.

“How is your boyfriend MCA tricky? Why are you catching feelings or are you shocked that I know” asked Akothee. Her caption then read, “@rue.baby if you think of dating a man let him shave his hair please @mcatricky, you will not ask for double saloon money ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ men with this kind of hair is troubles ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ.”

MCA Tricky responded to the threat with a cheeky reference to calling the police, the way Akothee normally does. “๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ today am the one calling poliiiiiis mayoooooooo,” he wrote.

The entertainer, however, said that he wanted to get a child in the near future with his girlfriend, Renee. The two have been together for 2 years.

He clarified that he first wanted his girlfriend to finish college before they can think about marriage or getting pregnant.

The entertainer also revealed the most memorable thing that Renee had done for him. His answer was a bit shocking to me. He said that the light-skinned chick had once taken him to meet her parents for the first time without even warning him!

‘She took me to her parents in Mombasa. It told me a lot about her character that she was willing to introduce me. I also learnt that they were fans of mine! The most interesting thing about that day was that her parents didn’t know that we were dating. They even thought it was a prank.’

MCA Tricky reveals what he wants in potential wife (Exclusive)

MCA Tricky can be a tricky man to interview (Forgive me, I had to use that pan) as he is very careful with the words he uses and can give out some vague answers especially on topics he doesn’t want to go deep into.

I recently spoke to the comic whose real names are Paul Kimani Njoroge and has made some big strides in the last couple of years. He spoke about his ambitions not only in his career but also in his personal life.

On his career, the man is a bit more direct and said that his ambition over the next 5 years is that he wantedย his name to have grownย into 5 viable brands. Is the artiste looking forward to getting married anytime soon? He said it can happen even next year if conditions are right.

The comedians view on money and wealth is one that is very fascinating. He told me that everyone gets broke and that it is based on one’s mentality, saying that the moment he feels like he isn’t broke anymore is when he will not feel the need to hustle anymore.

โ€˜He tries to be like Michael Jackson!โ€™ MCA Tricky compliments Diamond (Exclusive)

One thing that most might not know about the comedian is that he might be saved. One easy way of knowing that was that his callback ringtone is gospel in nature and when I asked him about it, he said that the question shouldn’t be asked as it is quite obvious.

What does he look for in a woman? ‘I want a woman who will give men a wonderful generation, meaning that she has character and can match with me to produce wonderful kids.’ MCA said.

What is his most positive attribute when dating? He said that his biggest quality was that he brings seriousness to his relationships. MCA Tricky also said that he had never been dumped by any woman in his life.

‘He tries to be like Michael Jackson!’ MCA Tricky compliments Diamond (Exclusive)

I recently spoke to MCA Tricky and the comedian was very forthright about some certain aspects in his life. The comedian whose fanbase is rapidly growing is currently on a tour in many counties in Kenya.

Mr. Tricky admitted that he doesn’t compete with any person in the comedy industry. How could that be considering that there are bigger names in the industry like Churchill and Eric Omondi? He said that he felt that he needed to push himself by growing hisย brand and that only happens if he keeps on interacting with his audience.

The comedian said that he admired himself in the comedy industry. His reason for the humblebrag was that he learns something from each and every other comedian in his industry.

But the artiste explained that he did have someone that he looks up to in life. Who could that be? ‘I admire Diamond the most in life. That guy is daring. He believes he is a Michael Jackson even though he can’t match those heights but he still tries to do it,’ said the entertainer.

And how did he have such a great estimation of the Tanzanian singer? Had they met? The comic said that they hadย met a few times and although they weren’t deep conversations, one could see the work ethic Diamond had.

Zari says Diamond has not seen his kids for 9 months!

And who did he support between Diamond or Zari considering he has also engaged with Zari in the past and that the two exes have been engaged in a nasty back and forth the past few months? MCA was very diplomatic in his answer sayingย that he did not mind supporting Diamond as he and Diamond had similar dreams.
