Vincent Mboya, the 21-year-old man who went viral after publicly asking Jalong’o to help him pay three-month rent arrears, has castigated the comedian for using harsh words after helping him.

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

He said, though he was grateful to Jalango for clearing his rent arrears totalling to Ksh18000, using ‘harsh’ words to advise him was 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.

He added: “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.
