Actor, producer, and scriptwriter Abel Mutua on Saturday 1 August 2020 disclosed that online comedian Timothy Kimani popularly known as Njugush’s has been feeding him for two years through his wife after helping him years ago.
During an episode dubbed Celeb first encounters on his YouTube show, the former Tahidi High actor narrated how he met Njugush for the first time as he struggled to get his first audition opportunity for nine years ago.
He narrated that he was supposed to go to Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) to check on a play that Njugush was part of but due to unforeseen circumstances, he had to postpone for three days consecutively.
Abel Mutua said that after attending the competition, he was impressed by Njugush and told him he would look for him when he got a chance. Two years later, he started earning and Abel promised him he would hold his hand until the day he made Ksh. 100,000.
After earning his Ksh. 100,000, Abel reminded him of the promised he made to him but Njugush refused to let go of him and told him he would only let him go after he made his first Ksh. 1,000,000.
In 2015, they all resigned from Real Househelps of Kawangware. Abel disclosed that 2016 was one of Njugush’s toughest years as he tried to do online comedy before his big break in 2017 which Abel attributed to his consistency.
With his hard work, Njugush’s opportunities started to flow and one day he called Abel and told him that he had signed a two-month contract worth Ksh. 1,000,000 and he wanted to repay him but he refused.
“Akaniambi zii. Wewe kwa hii world ulikuja kunishika mkono. Umeshafanya hio kazi umeenda sio mii ntakulipa hio ni God anakulipa. But mimi lazima nirudishe mkono ya ile kitu ulinifanyia na nimekuwa nikicheki wife wako manze anafanya mambo fiti but I can tell mahali yuko hayuko happy.”
“Hii pesa nahitaji mtu wakunisaidia kuimanage. So napataia bibi yako kazi tukimbie na yeye mpaka mwisho. Hivyo ndio imekuwa mpaka saa hii it’s been close to two years tangu waanze kupiga job pamoja. So basically for two years huyu jamaa amekuwa akinilisha manze,” he narrated.
