Comedian Terence Creative alias Kamami is celebrating two years and seven months since he quit smoking.
By now you all know that the comedian also grew up in the street.
Terence started smoking after his mother died. At least according to his previous interviews.
While smoking, the father of three says that he lost many opportunities in life.
Among them were gigs and even his wife could not kiss him because of the smell.
“2 years 7 months without smoking 🚬 🚬🚬🔥🔥I used to smoke 2 – 3 packs of cigarettes a day,when clubbing I would do shisha as well and weed once in a while,my friends made shisha sound less harmful than cigarettes which was a lie,every smoke is harmful and can kill.
Terence went on to hightligh some of the effects;
“1. My wife rarely kissed me those days for over 5years hivi.
2. People disrespected me and some opted to pay me with smokes instead,they would say “huyo bora umpelekee fegi,atakujenga “
3. I lost some jobs coz of my addiction.
4. I was fooled that while smoking I was more creative – uongo
5. I had bleeding gums and very strong body odour
6. Breathing difficulties,coloured teeth and many other bad things that come with smoking.
I am glad I did quit,you too can quit,sio hard,I had smoked over 20years #smokingAintCool #smokingkills 🚬🚬⚰️ 🚬🚬 #wachaFegi #terencecreative
Earlier on, Terence estimates that he has smoked at least 166,000 cigarettes in 22 years.
“One year ago I was a smoke slave. I couldn’t function without smoke, I kept it to my mind that I needed to smoke to be more creative. Later on I realised it was just a myth. I prayed to God and said to myself I will quit. I prayed and told God to free me ’cause I’m his child, and he did,” he said.
Apart from smoking, Terence turned to crime in Mathare to make ends meet but later reformed.
He is among the most sought after online comedians and has endorsed several brands.
He also works with Churchill show as a producer.
