So that we can create opportunity for other people who wish to have themselves on Jalang’o TV.

It will be an opportunity to give so many others youth who have talent and have always wanted to showcase themselves…so we just create a Jalang’o TV and move on. Advertisers have started coming on board…if you want us to advertise something for you so that we are able to pay salaries of those who will be presenters well and good. So that Bonga na Jalas is not just about me, it’s about all of us and we create the number one Kenya Online Television on YouTube. I will give a number where you send 1-minute clip of you doing your thing and we will put it out here and we get our Jalang’o TV hosts,” announced Jalang’o.
