I was never a chokoraa – MCA Tricky comes clean
He is a stand-up comedian on Churchill Show and a presenter on Radio Maisha.
When he started out, many knew him as a street urchin who joined the street life at the tender age of 12.
His grass to grace story endeared him to the audience more, but as it turns out, MCA tricky was never a street kid.
In an interview with the Standard, the funnyman claimed that he was never a chokoraa, it’s the media that twisted his story.
“I was never a chokoraa (street kid). I was only a hustler in the streets but a section of the press changed the story to imply I was one. I was but a hustler ferrying goods for businesspeople to and fro Muthurwa Market,” he told SDE.
The comedian joined the Standard Group as a radio presenter on the show alongside Billy Miya. MCA was roped in to provide humour on the breakfast show.
Miya confirmed MCA’s new job with a post that read “It is official, MCA Tricky has joined us in the morning show, he will be going live starting tomorrow. He will be going on air for two hours split into a 6-7 a.m segment and the additional hour will be from 9:00 a.m. We will now be three on the show”.
