Renowned Kenyan comedian and media personality Jalang’o has rubbished claims that he is part of a ‘Wash Wash’ syndicate laundering money and defrauding innocent Kenyans in the city.
Speaking during his Kiss 100 morning show alongside Kamene Goro, Jalang’o noted that he has unquestionable integrity, adding that he is hurt that someone could portray him as a fraud.
He noted that for him, all his money comes through Hustle. Jalang’o revealed that for the past 15 years, his days have been starting at 4am consistently, just so that he can earn good money and live the life he wants.
“I never ever thought one day someone will ever question my integrity, and how I make my money, and accuse me or write something that would make me look like I’m a fraud. On my father’s grave, I have never ever stolen from anyone. Neither have I ever gotten involved in any fraudulent or unscrupulous deals
“To me it has always been hustle, it has never changed, and if it was that easy to make money then everybody would… For the past ten, fifteen years, I have never known what 7 o’clock looks like in the morning, unless it is a holiday or a weekend when I’m not working, I’ve always known 4 in the morning as my wake up time and we come to Kiss. Kiss is my first hustle,” he said.
Explaining his other sources of income a part from his main job at Kiss 100, Jalang’o noted that he owns Arena media; an advertisement company that pushes different brands in the country.
Additionally, Jalang’o noted that he is a brand ambassador for five top brands and an influencer for many other companies.
He maintained that reports that he is involved in ‘Wash Wash’ are ill intended, adding that he business dealings are legal and done in accordance to the law.
‘Wash Wash’ is a popular slang phrase used by Kenyans to refer to unscrupulous business dealings especially money laundering and high-value scams.
Last week, controversial blogger Edgar Obare released an expose on persons allegedly involved in ‘Wash Wash’ in Kenya and Jalang’o’s name was featured.
