Media personality Felix Odiwour alas Jalang’o has boasted that his net worth is way more than the Sh10 million which is true, and we will show you why.
In a recent interview with Aypo TV, Jalang’o was asked whether it was indeed true that all his assets and finances in hand amounted to Sh10 million.
To which he set the record straight, instead suggesting the figure was just but the estimated value of one of his many cars.
“Sh10 million? That is just the price of one of my cars; there is a V8, Mercedes V-Class, Mercedes SLK, Discovery…. But I thank God for everything,” he said.
The popular comedian cum radio presenter also revealed he owned several apartments that he has turned to Airbnb.
“I have apartments and the house I live in. The apartments are several and most are in the Airbnb business because it’s a big business nowadays in Nairobi,” he added.
With everything he owns, Jalango revealed that his greatest achievement is building his mother a house.
According to Jalang’o, his late father died on the same day he got his first job on the radio, but behind a letter asking him to build his mother a house and educate his siblings.
Jalang’o further revealed he was working on a construction project with his longtime friend Alex Mwakideu.
“We had pieces of land and wondered what we should do with them. Using our influence, we asked partners and sponsors to help construct houses as a way of advertising their products,” he said.
Alex and Jalang’o have documented their project on the YouTube channel Jenga na Alex na Jalas.
