MC Jessy is one of the best-established comedians in the country. The man who MC’s the Churchill Show came ups form being a relative unknown to being one of the faces of Kenyan comedy.
And the veteran comedian has seen a lot and knows a lot, especially as he has been under crashing spotlight that many celebs are subjected to.
The man who always carries a sunny disposition is a pleasant interview guest and he was willing and ready to give his thoughts on the current entertainment landscape.
And he did so. I asked him the question about what would cause a comedian like David the Student to con Kenyan’s abroad for their hard-earned cash, he said:
Reality is everything. You don’t have to have a social media life to survive. Kama wewe ni mtu wa mutura kula mutura. No one cares. Mi naishi life yangu huku Kinoo. When I realized that I, nikasema hakuna pressure.
He added hat the pressure a celeb may have is not from outside but from within. He also explained that comedy was paying well using the examples of MCA Tricky, also a Churchill Show comedian who is flourishing.
He emphatically said that as long as somebody is working in the Churchill Show they should be doing well, insisting that they don’t play around with their artists money.
His advice to celebs like Kobi Kihara on social media usage was to use it to market themselves saying:
Live your own life. Look at Huddah, she changed her social media profile to market herself. Now she has Huddah Cosmetics on her page. That is wisdom. Also Vera has done the same(Selling her new salon Vera Sidika beauty parlour).
He finished off by reiterating that social media should be used for marketing yourself, saying that flossing should be avoided as one should try to uplift ones followers. Do you agree?
