Omosh fires back at Critics bashing him for begging for Help Again
Former Tahidi High Actor Joseph Kinuthia aka Omosh has hit back at critics bashing him for asking for help from Kenyans again.
In a video seen by Pulse Live, Omosh said that, he was not forcing anybody to contribute for him.
“Kwani Majama shida iko wapi? Mlicome through mkaniokolea ndio hii Keja inasimama, Maanze thanks a lot kwa kitu mlinifanyia.
Kitu inaniwasha ni mnaniuliza mahali nilipeleka pesa, Nilikuwa na mashida mingi sana lakini bado mashinda haziishangi. Ndo Maana nilikua nakusho kama unajiskia, si ati nilikuwa Nalazimisha. Manze joo mlinitoa kwa shimo na nashukuru sana..Ma bloggers wachaneni na mimi…hata soon nafungu keja na tutachoma mbuzi..so hiyo ndo inafaa kutrend” said Omosh.
On Friday, Omosh appealed for help from Kenyans stating that he got lots of empty promises. He explained that used a big chunk of the money he received to pay debts, something that left him with empty pockets.
He went on to say that he was in need of a camera, tripod, lights and a microphone to produce his planned comedy skits, something that singer B-Classic has now promised to give him.
“Do Believe in Second Chances, Ila Huwa Pia Naamini In Kupea Mtu Tools Za Kazi Ili Aweze Kujitaftia. Brother Omosh , Nicheck Nikufikishie Zawadi Yako Uweze Kupiga Kazi“ said B Classic.
Akothee Clashed with Kenyan Power Staff at her Private Home
Kenyan musician Akothee slammed Kenya Power staff in Migori over what she called an attempt at forcing themselves inside her home on Wednesday.

She explained that there are power cables passing through her huge compound and the team said they wanted to work on them.
However, the musician claimed that the group also wanted to use the opportunity to take pictures of her private mansion.
“I don’t owe you anything, you have no right to force yourself into my home without my permission,” Akothee posted on Instagram.
Come and move out all the wires passing through my compound so you can be accessing them anytime you feel like,” she posted.
The Sweet Love hitmaker threatened that next time she would take action into her hands because they threatened to disconnect the power supply to her house.
“When we call you for emergencies you don't even respond so what's the urgency for ?” Akothee questioned.

Ni nini niliwai fanyia huyu mzee honestly - Eric Omondi hits back at Ezekiel Mutua
Celebrated Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi hit out at Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua over his recent comments that were somewhat targeted towards him.
Addressing the media, Mutua took issue with the ongoing 2021 World Rally Championship (WRC) Safari Rally saying that it is gaining hype as a hub for ‘impunity’.
In his message, Mutua says that Kenyans are not selling their culture but are using the Rally as a ‘venue of absurdity and immorality.’
Moving to Eric Omondi, the KFCB boss dubbed The Moral Cop said, “In 50 years, hakuna mtu atajua Eric Omondi alikuwa msanii wa kusikika. Naomba wakati huo atakuwa anajivunia vitu alikuwa anafanya wakati huo.”
This statement rubbed Omondi the wrong way and he took to his social media to say so.
“Lakini Jokes aside ni nini niliwai fanyia huyu mzee honestly. This statement is very archaic. The work of a Creative or any Serious Comedian like myself is to simply Mirror the society, I reflect our behaviour as a people so that we not only laugh at ourselves but pick a lesson or two. Bwana Ezekiel please wake up these things are happening in our Society and we need to ask ourselves why? Recently you strongly defended a politician who was caught in a similar situation but today you Strongly Condemn a Comedian for Joking about the same.”
Omosh pleads for help again, reveals he got many empty promises
Former Tahidi High actor Joseph Kinuthia is appealing for help once again, months after Kenyans came to his aid.
In an interview with TV47, Omosh disclosed that many people who promised to help him gave empty promises. The actor says he is in need of a camera, tripod, lights and a microphone to produce his planned comedy skits.
He added that he paid his debts with a big chunk of the money he received, something that left him with empty pockets.
“Manze kama ulisema unanitumia kakitu kwani kaliendaje? Bado nategea tu… Kusema tu uwkeli nilipata less than Sh1 million shillings. Nikalipa madeni, chuo ya watoi, juu nilikuwa nimekaa one year, four months bila kulipa.
“Nililipa Madeni nikabaki zero, so sai madeni zinaweza kuja nikicheza... but so far chuo, hao, food… Manze mnidunge katitu bana... Number ni 0727054141. Tuma kakitu.
“Sai nikapata mtu aninunulie tu camera, tripod, lights mbili na microphone, sasa ni wache kuomba. Juu huyo jamaa atakuwa amenipatia capital ingine ile wacha tu,” said Omosh.
Jalang’o speaks out after Omosh asked for Help again, reveals the money he got
Comedian and media personality Jalang’o weighed in after actor Omosh appealed for help once again, months after Kenyans came to his rescue. Jalas who was among those who fundraised heavily for Omosh by mobilizing his close friends and business partners to help him, dismissed claims that he received less than Sh1 Million.
In a comment, Jalang’o sought to clarify that, the Ex- Tahidi High actor got more that Sh700K in cash while on his show. Adding that, others opted to send money directly to his bank account and phone number.
He also pointed out that Politician Alinur Mohamed gave the actor food worth 60K, plus 100K in cash.
“Some people never learn! I can easily assure that Omosh got more than 1 million from my show. Personally in cash he got more than 700K, then people sent money directly to him. I hosted him 2 weeks after he came out…people has already started sending him money @Zeroherepropertiesltd got him land and @sungtimber1built him a house @Honalinur gave him food worth 60k and another 100K in Cash! Hii ni Ujinga tu” said Jalang’o.
