Comedian and radio personality Felix Odhiambo Odiwuor alias Jalang’o earned a cool Ksh2 million to emcee the launch of the Sauti Kuu Foundation that was presided by then-US President Barack Obama in 2018.
The Kiss 100 radio presenter made the revelation during a recent interview with Tanzanian content channel Ayo TV. Jalang’o said he was paid approximately 20,000 USD.
The multi-faceted showbiz player also revealed that he charges Ksh500,000 for a 2-hour performance.
In a past interview, Jalang’o recounted how he landed the Obama emceeing gig saying he had ‘manifested’ it.
“The news about Obama coming to town was all over; and I told Jeff, on the Jeff and Jalas show on Hot 96, that I would host the event, merely as a joke,” he said.
“Later on, the team from Gina Din Events watched the recorded show and I was called by Lorna Irungu Macharia, the group MD Gina Din Events. Lorna told me: ‘Do you know some dreams come true?’
“I asked her: ‘What dream are you talking about?’
“She went on to tell me that Gina Din Events was handling Obama’s PR in Kenya and I was the chosen emcee.
“Sometimes what you say is powerful because you never know who is watching or listening, the tongue is very powerful,” Jalang’o said.
