I am next: How MC Jesssy pushed me to join university – Jalang’o

Popular Kenyan comedian and Milele FM radio host Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang'o on Saturday June 29 revealed why he is yet to graduate from Daystar University despite registering at the institution in 2013.

While praising fellow comic Jasper Muthomi popularly known as MC Jessy on graduating, Jalang’o disclosed that he is 40 school hours shy from donning a graduation gown like the Churchill Raw host.

According to Jalang’o, MC Jessy played a huge role in him joining the university. He noted that was hesitant at first, held back by the connections he had and a career on the up trajectory.

Here is Jalang’o’s message in his own words:

“Many moons have passed since my brother MC Jessy told me talent without school is nothing. Today (June 28) the truth just dawned on me when I saw this pic of my brother in a gown!!

“My registration at Daystar is 130607 and you would wonder why if I am 13 why am I in school 6 years later? No, the pressure from Kizito who was the PR manager at Daystar and that of Jessy sent me to register in 2013 yet I joined 3 years later.

“Jessy kept on pushing me to register and I kept wondering what for? I have a career, I have connections? Why do I need to go to school? Today is another reason! So I just registered so that Jessy would not disturb me.

“Little did I know that after I had registered Jessy would still be after me asking me if I attended class. To cut the long story short, I have already done more than 100hrs in school from a possible 140! 40hrs to go before I wear the same gown!

“I pushed myself so hard and knew we would graduate together but I have just a few hours to go! I promise you I am next!

“Today I just want to send congratulations to my friend and my brother MC Jessy! Today you've inspired many of us! I am happy for you. God is happy!!

Born and raised in Kisumu, the comic CEO attended Homabay Lake primary school.

He scored a C+ at Nyangoma Boys Secondary School after failing to secure admission to Maseno National School despite getting a calling letter.

Jalang’o, due to financial constraints, was taken to Maseno by his father a week after the admission date. They were told that his slot had been handed to another student.
