Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho is one of the few great leaders we have if we were to go by his developments at the coastal city.
The stylish governor, who’s known for his love for finer things in life, is also a great fan of music.
Joho has been very supportive of musicians from the coastal region. Susumila and Kelechi are some of those who enjoy his support.
Well, a few months ago, a video of Joho jamming to the Katerina song, which was posted on Tiktok went viral, leaving Kenyans speculating.
He was singing along to Bruce Melodie’s lyrics which goes like..
I wanna look at u baby kidogo katerina eih !
Say whatever u say she`s my new lover
I deserve her
Some claimed he was singing for his alleged new lover while others bashed him, saying he was wasting a lot of time on Tiktok instead of serving his people, who voted him in.
Reacting to the video in an interview with Churchill on the Journey series, he said,
KATERINA IMENILETEA SHIDA. HATA NIMEIGOPA HIYO WIMBO SASA. NILITUMIWA MESSAGES…
THE POINT IS, PEOPLE MUST UNDERSTAND EVEN IF YOU’RE A LEADER, YOU HAVE A LIFE. WHAT IS WRONG IF I SPEND TWO MINUTES TO ENJOY MUSIC? I’M STILL HUMAN AND I’M ALLOWED TO ENJOY AND LIVE LIFE. I DON’T WORK 24/7! I DO WHAT I NEED TO DO THEN I ALSO HAVE TO FIND TIME FOR MYSELF NIANZE KUIMBA NYIMBO ZA KINA SUSUSMILA.
