• "That day I slept with the watchman-Consumator
Kenyan comedian, Consumator has opened up on how he was kicked out like a dog by a friend.
At the time the Churchill comedian said he started living with a friend after Covid-19 came and he couldn't afford to pay rent on his own.
He agreed to share the rent with his friend.
"At the end of 2019, my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. It was something serious so I ended up using most of my savings, thankfully he is now OK although he goes to clinics now and then.
After that, I couldn't afford to pay rent so I moved in with a friend who is also in the industry. We agreed to cost-share the 3K rent. At the time I was hoping I would get the cash but I did not, but that is when Covid-19 hit."
"I managed to pay the first month but I was not able to pay up the next few months (3). He started showing me madharau, he would come home full and go to sleep, I would sleep hungry because on some days I had no money.
One day I came home at night I found everything thrown out including my inner-wear. I never thought he would go to such lengths as we had grown together."
The comedian says being thrown out at night by a friend was the lowest point of his life.
"I thought he would throw me out in a diplomatic way. People knew me so it was very embarrassing picking things up as people watched. That day I slept with the watchman.
I called some people some thought it was a joke, others said they couldn't help. A lady I studied with at Daystar University is the one who came through for me."
Consumator is currently making ends meet by engaging in odd jobs.
