Musyoka will also have a relief from his tiring work in Mukuru kwa Njenga slums where he helps pull water vending carts.

The duo has also appealed to Kenyans who have used their viral clip for commercial purposes to consider sharing the income with them.

Don’t use my photo or video for free. Even if it's in a comedy skit, include me and we can share the money,” Matendechere.

The two have spent a large part of their lives in Mukuru Kwa Njenga, with the ‘Nitakufinya man’ revealing he settle in the informal settlement in 1992.
