Former Tahidi High actor Joseph Kinuthia alias Omosh has broken his silence after he went viral on social media for begging yet again despite having received thousands of shillings a few months ago.
In a short video clip that has been shared on social media, Omosh expressed his utter shock for going viral on social media saying he is still grateful to Kenyans for helping him out.
"Manze sinatrend, nimetoka interview ingine natrend kuruka. Kwani majama shida iko wapi? Mlicome through mkaniokolea keja ndio hii inasimama. Manze thanks a lot kwa kitu mlinifanyia( I am shocked to learn that I am trending after my earlier interview. What is the problem surely? I am still grateful that you all came through and helped that I even have a house. Thanks a lot for what you did for me),” he said.
The actor further clarified that he used the money donated to him appropriately by settling his huge debts and paying school fees for his kids.
“Kitu inaniwasha ni mnaniuliza mahali nilipeleka pesa. Nilikua na mashida mingi sana lakini bado mashida haziishangi. Ndo maan nilikua nakusho kama unajisikia, si ati nilikua nalazimisha. I thank you sana juu mlinisort sana(What pains me is the fact that I am being queried where I took the cash you donate. I want to state clearly that I had huge debts. That is why I said if you wish you give me something, I was not forcing anyone. I thank you a lot because you helped me big),” he added.
His response came after his interview in a local TV angered a section of Kenyans who accused him of misusing the amount they donated to him.
In his interview, Omosh asked for help saying most people who pledged to donate did not fulfil their promises.
He said he received less than Ksh1 million which he used to settle debts and other pending bills.
The shocking turn of events, that left most of those who stood by him including comedian Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o surprised, made some Kenyans to swore never to help the actor again.
Omosh told the local tv he needed a camera, tripod and lights only so that he can begin producing drama series for his YouTube channel.
