Just like the sensation that was Githeri Man, James Mbugua of the viral ‘Mathwiti na Makeki’ video has got wellwishers and corporates lining up with goodies beyond his young imagination.
In just a month since comedian Chipukeezy hosted him on “The Funny Truth 4”, James Mbugua has been named the brand ambassador of Valentine’s Cake House. Additionally, young Mbugua has scored himself a fully paid education scholarship.
Courtesy of JamboPay CEO Danson Muchemi, the scholarship will cover Mbugua’s education up to University level.
Chipukeezy confirmed the news on his Instagram page thanking all the wellwishers who have contributed to Mbugua’s cause. They include State House operative Dennis Itumbi who promised a meet up with DP Ruto this week and Nyali MP Mohammed Ali.
Multichoice Kenya further pledged Sh100,000 towards the boy’s fundraiser.
Earlier this year, Kameme FM’s presenter Muthee Kiengei wa Watoria visited Mbugua at his home in Ndumberi and showered his family with clothes, food, drinks, a bike and a cake.
