Kenyans get emotional as Leyla, Wendy and Ellyanne Githae talk about their deadbeat fathers

My dad left me when I was very little - Ellyanne

Leyla Mohammed, Wendy Waeni, Ellyanne Githae expose their deadbeat fathers during JKL interview

Three young Kenyan celebrities who appeared on the JKL show on Wednesday night left Kenyans concerned and emotional about deadbeat fathers.

Musician Leyla Mohammed, Gymnast Wendy Waeni and Environmentalist Ellyanne Githae all confirmed that their fathers had left them to be raised by their mothers.

Ellyanne broke down while describing how she came to meet her father in 2017 when she was seven years old.

Jeff Koinange had to comfort the nine-year-old award-winning environmentalist before proceeding with the interview.

Wendy sent out an appeal to her father, asking him to come back: "Dad I forgive you, I don't know where you are, I don't know if you're watching but please just come back home, I miss you."

I wish him the best of luck wherever he is - Leyla Mohammed

Leyla seemed to be the only one who was not distraught with her father's absence. She said she is glad that he left.

"Everyone is doing a sad version of this so let me give it a twist. Now that our dads left us, don't look at the negative side, look at the positive side. Like me now, I can boldly say I'm the head of the family...I forgave him (dad) a long time ago and I wish him the best of luck where he is," Leyla stated.

Wendy also exposed her former Manager Joe Mwangi for allegedly swindling her of all the money she has made with her performances.

She pleaded with Mwangi to give her back the credentials to her social media pages and issued an apology to Radio Presenter Jalang'o for disrespectful posts made through her accounts.
