Joseph Ndegwa

Talented Joseph Ndegwa Ngare became an internet sensation after a video of him imitating veteran journalist Jeff Koinange went viral.

On Wednesday, he made his debut on JKLive show, where he was hosted by his idol Jeff Koinange.

Ndegwa made his way to the studio in a similar fashion reminiscent of Jeff, holding the signature cup of tea.

“Welcome to Citizen TV my name is Jeff Koinange….Remember to tweet in @KoinangeJeff and hashtag as always is #JKLive….and JKLive begins….right now….taaaaanite!” the talented boy said,”.

He took a sip just like Jeff does, leaving the former CNN journalist puzzled.

“I’m looking at myself [MINI ME] right now. Are you kidding me?” he said while laughing.


Ndegwa then told Jeff

“Umemaliza kazi hapa Jeff…Enda home.”

Joseph, a pupil at Olulunga Day Primary School in Narok County said he wants to be a journalist and he started watching Jeff earlier in the year because he likes his voice.

It took me 40 years to do this and you’re 11 years old..,’ Jeff tol the Grade 5 pupil and he responded saying, My, my, my, Oh my wamae,’ Ngare said.

The two went ahead to have a conversation and as Jeff would say, it was ‘smoooking hot!’

Jeff: One day you’ll be like me.

Joseph: In fact, you should leave JKL now, I don’t know who hired you.

The host had so much fun interviewing the star boy and concluded by saying

“Joseph Ngare Ndegwa, the man who’s gonna take over from me any day now,”

The young boy added, “from now”.
