Following the virality of his photos, many brands offered to help him live a decent life to an extent of gifting him a new car, a house and a holiday.

However, this year he surfaced again with a cry that he was “used” after being kicked out of the Kilimani house he had been given.

After the call, we went to the pub where Michael had mentioned. He was drinking and looked drunk but refused to admit it.
