5 photos of 'Fatso' that will make you feel old

In Machachari, he was known as 'bully wa mtaa' whose love for food rivalled the Ancient Romans …

The Machachari cast

In an earlier interview with Bingwa Magazine, Fatso said “Fatso is a bully who also loves eating, that’s definitely not me in real life. I love eating but I’m not a bully though I don’t tolerate nonsense.”

And now he is all grown up and a far cry for the little boy we saw on Machachari.

Known officially as Mathew Owiti and unofficially as Fatso, the former Kwa Njenga Primary School student was among the young talents natured in hit TV show Machachari. Now he has grown into a reputable actor, a rapper, poet and a writer just like his former cast mate Almasi who has been dabbling with writing, which he is very good at.

We came across a few photos of Mathew who is turning 20 this year and he has fully blossomed into a man, beard and all.
