• Bruce Matheka vented out his frustration of not being able to represent his country and giving up on his modelling dream internationally.
• This was caused by lack of Sh380,000 .
Bruce Matheka who was handed the title and franchise of Man of The World Kenya 2023, was scheduled to go and represent Kenya in this year's edition.
He reveals how he feels so disappointed for letting all the people who had believed in him down.
Bruce narrated how he had been a model for the last ten years and to him this was the height of his modeling journey he felt he had left a failure.
"...I took a risk quitting my job one year ago, dreaming big, it's now a dead dream..."
which he said had left him depressed and hurt.
Bruce had reached out to several people who had promised to offer him support and some had even attended his coronation ceremony that was held on 17th December 2022.
He felt he had been pumped and cheated with empty promises, and maybe to him, this was due to him just being the son of an ordinary person.
To him, this competition was not just about him but the people whom he used to support through his modeling initiatives.
"...it was about the deaf community I advocated for...the inmates I was visiting to give them hopes through fashion and chapati...the high school program I introduced ….about our environment and tree planting exercise..."
Bruce revealed that it was just a deficit of Sh380,000 that will make this not possible and all these plans had gone down the drain.
He thanked his management and the few people who had given their money through the contribution channel.
Bruce revealed that the money that was sent in will be refunded back to the last cent to everyone who gave.
People took to comfort him in the comments section and told him not to give up on his dream.
