Vincent Mboya, a young man who received financial aid from Jalang’o barely a week ago for his pending rent arrears, has resorted to refunding the comedian his money who should respond in the next 48 hours for collection.
A few weeks prior, Jalang’o listened to the man’s grievances after he walked around with a placard requesting ksh. 6000 worth of rent to which the media personality offered triple the amount.
In a new twist, Mboya was reportedly irked by the comedian’s response while offering him 18,000 which he feels he belittled him publicly.
The struggling man has now revealed that he has managed to raise the amount and wants Jalang’o to collect it personally within the next 48 hours.
“Felix Odiwuor (Jalang’o), come for your money. I’m giving you 48 hours you come to collect your money,” he said while counting the cash.
“He can pin his location so that we meet and I hand him the cash,” he said.
He further disclosed that he is willing to top up with more money if the Kiss 100 presenter would need it.“I’m returning the money in good faith…If he wants me to exceed it I will do. My name is the prize,” he said.
The controversy has surfaced barely a week after Jalang’o rescued the 21-year-old from being locked out of his house over rent arrears.
Mboya in an interview said the media personality’s advice was uncalled for since he asked him to work and stop seeking sympathy from strangers.
“Your rent has been paid. Call your caretaker to confirm it. But you should stop looking for sympathy, go out there and work,” Jalang’o told Mboya.
Despite the kind gesture from Jalas, he feels that his words were embarrassing and he belittled him. He further explained that he is now financially stable and will not be vacating from his house to a cheaper one.
“I was so disappointed. I was so upset by that part. I’m grateful that he helped me, but I don’t think the “work your *** off” part was necessary, I have afforded to return the money, how will I vacate,” Mboya had said in an interview.
