Kiss FM presenter Jalang’o has managed to raise over Ksh1Million for Ex-Tahidi High Actor Omosh.

In an update via his Instagram page on Sunday, February 14, the comedian shared a detailed statement of all the pledges he had already received totaling Ksh1,050,000, plus Ksh20,000 shopping vouchers, free bed, seats, and a TV, through friends and companies he works for.

After Omosh’s heartbreaking story went viral last week, Jalang’o had promised to fundraise at least Ksh1Million for him. Omosh hit the headlines after it emerged he was about to be kicked out of his rented house over rent arrears amounting to over Ksh150,000.

The comedian also spoke about his job loss especially during the pandemic and detailed how his family had been affected ever since he left TV. He was moved to tears as he appeals to Kenyans for help.

"Life has been so difficult. I cannot provide meals for my family. My children are even wondering what has become of me.

"There is nothing as hard as waking up every morning and there is nowhere I am going. You see people going to work and coming back and you have nowhere to go, it is very painful," said Omosh

Alinur Mohamed, the founder of Alinur Mohamed Foundation, also pledged to help Omosh financially.

“I have been touched after watching a video of Tahidi High’s Omosh breaking into tears as he pleads for help. He was my favorite actor in Tahidi High thanks to his acting skills. Like many other Kenyans, I am going to stand with him financially so that he can bounce back to life,” Alinur wrote.

Former Tahidi High actors have promised to use their platforms to help him get all the help he can. Actress Maria Chege wrote on her social media platform that she will do what she can to help Omosh.

“It’s not that I have much to give, but using the platform that I have, I am more than willing to join help him. Team Maggie, anyone willing to join me through this, comment below. I will visit him and give you all details on how you can help,” she wrote.

Omosh has asked Kenyans to continue helping him rise to his feet.
