Being a father of five, the actor has three baby mamas who left him because he had no means to support them or his kids.

"I am a father of five kids. Two of my kids moved back with my wife to Kisii where she works as a nurse. Two are with my baby mama in Sweden and the last one lives with the mother in the states. We are not on good terms with any of them because I am jobless"

Looking back, the actor confesses that he was a spendthrift but since he lost his job, he has learned the value of money.

Due to the change in lifestyle, the dreadlocked actor went into hiding and shied away from showing his face in theatres to improve his talent.

Apparently, he says that his full-time schedule is home management and street survey and is willing to accept an MC job because that's what he does best.

He concluded by calling out political leaders to consider creatives even as they pursue their political ambitions.
