Vincent Mboya, the 21-year-old man who went viral after he publicly asked comedian cum radio presenter Felix Oduor alias Jalong’o to help him pay his three-month rent arrears, has given Jalang’o 48 hours to collect the money he gave him.

In an Instagram interview shared on Friday, August 27, Mboya castigated the comedian for using harsh words after he sent him Ksh18,000 to settle his rent arrears.

“If the 48 hours elapse before Jalang’o comes for his money, then I will look for a way of making sure he gets his money back,” the 21-year old said.

Mboya said Jalang’o ‘advised’ him to work hard and stop seeking sympathetic using unprintable words.

He said, though he was grateful to Jalang’o for the help he accorded him in clearing his rent arrears, the words Jalang’o used while advising him were unnecessary.

“I was so disappointed. I’m grateful that he helped me, but I don’t think telling me ‘work your a** off’ was necessary,” Mboya told local YouTube channel.

In an earlier report by K24 Digital Mboya added that: “Sometimes people look down on you because you got nothing. I don’t have problem with him, but when things work out for me as God has planned, I will refund his money.”

Mboya, however, called on Jalang’o to stop looking down especially after declaring he will run for Langata MP seat in 2022.

“I’m advising him as his small brother. He is getting into politics and he should avoid curse words. He should be humble,” Mboya said.
