Two years ago, Kiss 100 breakfast presenter Jalang'o landed a lucrative deal when Tanzanian hotshot, Diamond Platnumz made him his official MC in Kenya.
This happened when Diamond was in the country for the official launch of his 'A boy from Tandale' album.
Jalang'o who was speaking during a Live interview with Mpasho said he is close with Diamond, and the reason why he chose him is because he wanted someone who understands him.
‘I AM STILL DIAMOND’S OFFICIAL MC.
DIAMOND IS MY FRIEND SO IS HIS MANAGER BABU TALE.
THE REASON THEY CHOSE ME IS THAT THEY ALWAYS WANT SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS THEM.
DIAMOND AND I COME FROM WAY BACK. UNTIL HE FIRES ME, THE CONTRACT IS OPEN.
IT’S ALWAYS TURNING GREEN, MEANING IT’S ALWAYS BEING EXTENDED.’
Jalang'o who is by far Kenya's best MC cum comedian has rubbed shoulders by who is who in the world and was even the MC during Barack Obama's homecoming.
Asked how he landed the gig which anyone would kill to have, he said,
“ONE MORNING ON HOT 96, THE NEWS OF OBAMA COMING TO TOWN WAS ALL OVER SO I TOLD JEFF YOU KNOW THAT WHEN OBAMA COMES TO TOWN I WILL BE THE MC AS A JOKE.
AND I WENT ON YOUTUBE AND TOLD PEOPLE ABOUT HOW I WILL DO IT.
THEN THE TEAM FROM GINA DIN WATCHED THE VIDEO AND THEY CALLED ME. LORNA IRUNGU TOLD ME THAT ‘DO YOU KNOW SOME DREAMS COME TRUE. GUESS WHO THE MC FOR OBAMA IS?’
Jalango recounting that conservation, said he was not aware and that is when she replied;
“YOU ARE THE MC,”
When I grow up I think I wanna be funny, be an MC and probably be named Jalang'o
