Churchill Show comedian MCA Tricky is without a doubt one of the biggest comedy talents in the country at the moment. His creative skits revolving around the life and stories of Nairobi’s street kids are a big hit on show.
However, as much as he is a bonafide ribcracker, viewers still wonder if he is a real street child.
The comedian spoke to Nairobi News , revealing his incredible grass to grace story.
Having dropped out of primary school, MCA( Member of Chokora Assembly) Tricky came to Nairobi in search of greener pastures. On arrival in the big city, Tricky got a rude shock as life was not as easy as he had imagined.
He, however, survived on odd jobs in Saika Estate along Kangundo Road helping businessmen who were transporting cabbages from Gikomba. With time, he got into drug abuse.
The comedian reveals that he now uses his street experience to entertain and educate his fans on what it really feels like to live on the streets.
“I use that character so people can stop overlooking the less fortunate; my character has changed people’s perceptions of street kids. Now people see me when they meet a chokara and they treat them like human beings. No one wakes up and decides to be a chokara, you just sink into it like a bad habit; it can happen to anyone.”
Together with veteran comedian Daniel Ndambuki (Churchill), MCA Tricky plans to work with NGOs and well-wishers to help other street kids.
