Comedian Flaqo revealed how his ex dumped him because he was broke. According to the funny man, the girl was tired of waiting for him to get rich.
Speaking about the experience, the comedian narrated,
“In my previous relationship, that time I was broke, and there are chicks who just don’t entertain broke guys. That chic dumped me because I was broke. Aliniambia, ‘I am tired of this upcoming stuff. You are always upcoming.'”
Flaqo admitted that this was very embarrassing. However, he continued with his comedy. On going back to school, he found the lady had also thrown out his stuff.
“That was after nimemaliza shule. So when I was going back to school, nilipata, she threw my things outside. It was so embarrassing at that time.”

My parents did not support me.

“To be honest, I’ve always been alone, and nobody has ever believed in myself except me.’
Speaking during an interview with Massawe Jappani, the comedian revealed his parents wanted him to study and be a doctor.
“Just take time and think about it and change. My mum wanted me to be a doctor, and I even did a public health course on campus. My mum then started introducing me as a doctor,” Flaqo said.
He also explained that his mother heavily influences his character, Mama Otis. According to the comedian, his mother is very tough.
