Aspiring politician comedian MC Jessy lost his mother when he was about to start his Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

In an interview with Radio Jambo, Jessy shared his life story revealing that he was an orphan;

"I do not have parents. My parents died when I was 12 years old. Actually, my mother died when I was doing rehearsals for KCPE. She died on Monday, On Tuesday I went to school, did the exams, till Thursday, finished the papers. On Friday, we started planning the funeral and we buried her on Saturday."

The comedian later came to Nairobi in September 2004 and lived with his uncle in Kileleshwa, who was then a member of Parliament for Igembe.

"When they gave me money to go buy meat and groceries, I would save the change. It was then I started going to Kenya National Theatre for auditions. It was a year later that I met other comedians like Churchill, Jalang'o," he said.

MC Jessy is now vying for the South Imenti parliamentary seat. In an earlier interview, MC Jessy said he used to do Nameless’ hair before he got into comedy. In a post on Instagram, Jessy said Nameless used to give him clothes.

He said;

“Today I just want to appreciate one person who has seen every step of my life. At one point in my life when I had two to three T-shirts to wear, this man @Namelesskenya allowed me to raid his closet and pick anything I wanted."I used to be mtu wa mkono for this good friend of mine juvinaris chalo (extreme left). We used to go and roll dredi za Nameless and that’s where we knew each other."

Other than that, MC Jessy used to sell mandazis.
