Omosh shed tears of joy in a video recording he shared to express his gratitude to Kenyans standing with him. The comedian also mentioned that comedian Jalang’o had helped raise over Ksh 1 million for him.
On Sunday, February 14, Jalang’o shared a detailed statement of all the pledges he had received totaling to Ksh1, 050, 000, plus Ksh20K shopping voucher, free bed, seats and a TV.

The actor further disclosed that he had been handed a free 40×80 plot of land and 50 bags of cement by ZeroHero properties, of which he would use to start up construction on the land.
“Of all the presents I’ve ever been given in my whole life, this is the best one I’ve ever gotten. These are people who are concerned about me and my fate,” he said as he shed tears of joy.
Omosh revealed that he did not know he had so many friends, noting that the support he had received was more than he had imagined.
“First and foremost, I want to thank God. I was in a very bad situation, at least I can now afford a smile. Although you see me crying, these are tears of happiness. Thank you for supporting me. God bless you,” said Omosh.
An overwhelmed Omosh asked his fans to continue supporting him as he takes time to organize himself.
Omosh became a trending topic last week after he opened up about his financial struggles ever since he quit TV. He said he owed his landlord over Ksh150,000 in rent arrears – and was at the verge of being kicked out the house.
He said he had lost his job during the pandemic, and which had affected his family. Omosh expressed his gratitude to Citizen TV for helping him build a name for the 14 years that he appeared on the Tahidi High show.
Kenyans have in the past joined hands to financially support other media sensations such as former NTV journalist Lolani Kalu and comedian George Maina Njoroge alias Njoro. Other than monetary support, Kalu also landed a job at TV 47, while Njoro was hired by KTN News and Flamingo Radio.
