Njugush explains why he wants to retire at 45
Kenyan comedian Timothy Kimani aka Njugush has explained why he started building his home when he was in his 20s.
Speaking during an interview with his wife Celestine Dinda, the father of two shared;
"When I was growing up I saw my dad buying land all over. By the time I was left home to leave alone, I was not used to paying rent.
It would pain me to pay 13,500 as rent which is why I decided to start building early. The good thing about investing in land is that it appreciates."
Njugush said he was inspired to build his home early as comedy does not have a long shelf life.
"Paying rent was very foreign to me.
"The things we do (comedy) are not long-lasting, it is not like law or doctors. For comedians, the longer you stay the more irrelevant you become."
Celestine says even when they met Njugush was already looking at the future.
"I had an uncle who was doing well off.
He was OK until he got sick, and from that, I learned that I would never want the case to be the same for me and my wife. That is why I keep saying I prepare myself so that If I were to leave today my family would be OK," Njugush plans to retire by 45.

This comes after the two shared videos on their Insta-stories, having a good time in Lamu.
The mother-to-one wrote, "First time in Lamu and I already love it...I love Kenya."
Kennedy who shared their photo didn't have much to say but Chris Brown's song, Warm Embrace, did the talking and told us all we needed to know.

“When He matches the flowers with your outfit 🥰🤗 …Huyu akiendelea hivi nitamzalia 🤣🙆🏻♀️ #amberthebrand. Siri …. play for me 1000 stems by Him😅🥰❤️. #amberthebrand.’
Almost immediately, Rapudo also put up insta-stories that suggest that he is the one spoiling Amber Ray.

“Acting all hard, that’s for homies that’s lonely,” read a post from Rapudo.
Kenyans react after Ladasha told Dj Mo he is smelly
Celebrity child Ladasha Wambo, firstborn daughter to Dj Mo and Size 8, has left Kenyans in stitches after she told her dad to shower as he was super smelly.
The celebrated disk jockey gave the impression he was returning home after his daily errands, and when he asked Ladasha to hug him, she retreated.
"You are smelly, you need to go shower," the little girl said, with no apologies to make.
"Are you saying daddy is smelling?" Dj Mo asked as Ladasha nodded her head in agreement, "because you are sweating," she added.
"Come I carry you," Dj Mo was not about to withdraw.
"No!" Ladasha firmly said, "You are super smelly, and you need to shower," she repeated just for clarity's sake.
In a mission to console himself, Dj Mo took it to his Instagram platform to write,
"Yaaani ata sinuki kitu 😂😂😂😂...Natoka hustle to make sure she lives the life and then Ladasha Wambo, has the audacity 😂😂...Thank you babe for recording I will remind her one day. Do you go through such with your kids as well?? 😂"
Museveni promotes his son General Muhoozi
Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni has promoted his son Muhoozi Kainerugaba to the rank of a general.
According to local media houses, Muhoozi was dropped and replaced by Kayanja Muhanga as the Uganda land forces commander.
Before his appointment, Muhanga was promoted to Lieutenant General and subsequently appointed land forces commander.
However, the Army spokesperson said he is yet to receive the communication.
An earlier tweet by Muhoozi said that he had had a discussion with his father following the row caused by his eruptive tweets, and that an announcement on changes would be made later.
"Had a good discussion with my great father this morning. Apparently, my tweets scared Kenyans too much?
He will announce the changes. There is a special prayer I shall make for our army," he said.
Andrew Kibe dares Bien to ditch Sauti Sol
Shortly a week after Sauti Sol's Bien and comedian Eric Omondi had another ugly online feud, former radio presenter Andrew Kibe has come online to share his two cents on the drama.
In a video that he shared on his YouTube channel, Kibe seemed to some degree to agree with Eric's remarks.
" If you noticed he was attacking and defending at the same time.... like he told him, you, you have the secret to success which means Bien is successful. Which he is, " Kibe started off.
He then matter of fact went on to add, " Bien is the most successful Sauti Sol. Without Bien there is no Sauti Sol, it is no lie when you think Sauti Sol you think Bien first then you start to wonder who else there is."
Kibe emphasized ( just as Eric had said) that Bien not only knows how to make hits but also how to be/ stay relevant.
Speaking with his friend who was in the ride along with him Kibe added," if Bien had any brains he would be the biggest artist that we have in Africa but he doesn't. Now he needs to do what is best for Sauti Sol... just leave."
" It is the hesitation of the potential that he sees in himself and does not want to be blamed for the disintegration of Sauti Sol at this point by out shinning them at this initial stage. He knows in himself that he has it but he is looking for a soft landing," Kibe's unidentified friend said.
A point which the controversial content creator seemed to agree with.
