Comedian Jalang’o has denied that he’s the man behind a circulating screenshot showing the late Ben Maurice Onyango popularly known as Othuol Othuol begging for Ksh 15,000 and getting ignored.
Jalang’o on social media said that though he saw the screenshots being tagged to his account, he wasn’t surprised at all coz nowadays it’s part of his brand.
So a blogger somewhere woke up and decided that the Othuol screenshot asking for 15k is me” said Jalas on social media.
“You see nowadays am so used to being associated with anything…I woke up and I saw this blog saying ” HOW JALANGO DINIED OTHUOL 15K ” Woow…do you know how you sit somewhere and wonder what you ever did to people? But am used to it now and it doesn’t bother me anymore…They always look for how to bring you down…In our group comedian Kenya Sandra Dacha has been collecting money from the time Othuol was admitted the first time…we have had more than 3 fund raisers that has been sorting his bills…We have been there to the last minute…But if you decide to associate me with the screenshot who am I to change your thoughts? Not me.”
The talented comedian passed on while receiving treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital on Sunday 11th October at 3 pm.
A statement from Ken Waudo, the Comedians In Kenya Society chair reads, “ Comedian Ben Maurice Onyango popularly also known as Othuol Othuol has passed on while receiving treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital on Sunday 11th October at 3 pm. This is the second time he has been hospitalized in the same facility suffering from brain tumor complications.”
Jalas wondered why someone will be so willing to spoil his name yet he has been pushing Othoul with everything.
