He updated his fans via his official Twitter handle that his account bnnke, which he has been using after the app pulled down his main account, has gone missing.
“Good morning, so Instagram today decided to disable my account bnnke on Instagram. We are working to figure out what to do next, as we appeal this decision with Instagram. See you soon,” he wrote.
Spot checks by this writer revealed that the account, often touted as the first to provide intricate gossip regarding celebrities and media personalities, was nowhere to be found.
Obare’s main account was in August 2021 disabled, forcing him to rely on his bnnke account for updates. This is after he ran an exposé on the brazen wash wash business in Kenya, which dragged in top celebrities as well as a section of the elite class.
Comedian and media personality Felix Odiwuor, alias Jalang’o was the first to deny those claims hours before Obare’s account disappeared.
During his morning show on Kiss FM on Monday, August 30, Jalang’o told his co-host Kamene Goro of his unquestionable integrity, swearing on his father’s grave that he has never stolen from anyone.
“I never ever thought one day someone will ever question my integrity, and how I make my money and accuse me or write something that would make me look like I’m a fraud. On my father’s grave, I have never ever stolen from anyone. Neither have I ever gotten involved in any fraudulent or unscrupulous deals.” he affirmed.
He noted that all the money he makes comes from his hustle and has been staring at 4 am wake-up calls as his forte for the past 10-15 years so that he could earn the money and live life as he pleases.
“For the past 10 to 15 years I’ve never seen what 7 o’clock looks like unless I’m on holiday or its the weekend when I’m not working because I’ve always just known 4 am as my wake up time and we come to Kiss and they pay us so well,” the comedian added.
Obare’s exposes have been known to spark controversy, leading him into collision courses with Kenyans, celebrities, big wigs, authorities, and the elite across the country with a wide range of topics that expose the never-before-seen social ills among them that are uncovered by media channels.
