Popular Gikuyu comedian Muthee Kiengei Wa Watoria has reacted to a viral audio where a Kikuyu gospel musician believed to be Sammy Irungu was accused of conning a church.
Kiengei, who is also a Kikuyu gospel musician, appeared to downplay the audio recording saying he has also been exposed in various online platforms until he got used to it.
In a Facebook post of Wednesday late night, the comedian who works at Kameme FM, named popular Facebook groups; Kilimani Mums and Chit Chat for Nairobi Mums and Dads as some platforms where he has been badly exposed.
He also claimed online news sites Tuko and Ghafla have published negative stories about him, adding that those has never put him down to quit the entertainment industry.
"Personally I was exposed in Kilimani Mums and got used to it until that group became home. Chit Chat took and exposed me and became my bedroom. Tuko exposed me and it became my stronghold. Now am only waiting to get old for my family's turn (comically referring to the habit of taking the aged out of the house for sunbathing)," he posted.
"That's how we manage things especially we who scored 173 marks in KCPE. Ghafla recently exposed me claiming they had missed Mr Handsome," Kiengei added.
(Mimi nilianikwa kilimani Mums Nikazoea kukakua Home Huko. Chitchat wakanichukua wakanianikaa Huko kukakuwa Bedroom yangu. Tuko ikanichukua ikanianikaaaa ikakuwa stronghold, sasa nimebakisha kuzeeka nianikwe na Familia nje.....That's How we manage things especially sisi watu wa 173 Marks KCPE. Ghafla walinianika juzi wakaambiwa ooh we missed mr Handsome).
In a six-minute recorded phone conversation shared widely on social media platforms, a man believed to be Irungu was heard arguing with an unidentified lady over Sh15, 000 which he had been paid to him, but he failed to show up to perform in a church function.
In the audio, the lady demands that the renowned musician refunds the money, but he refuses, asking the church to organise another function where he can perform instead of refunding the cash.
In the end, the conversation gets nasty with the lady accusing Irungu of being used to con people, and the gospel musician ends up insulting her.
