Prof Hamo
Prof Hamo

Professor Hamo is a staunch catholic. The comedian said in an interview with Kalondu Musyimi that he mostly cries when he's praying.

"God is my friend coz huwezi omoka if you don't have a relationship with God. But you cannot be alone like this, get work, and be successful. Ata kama wewe ni wa wash wash lazima utafute mtu wa kuworship."

"So I follow God and I love God that is who has made me who I am to make people laugh 10 million people at once on a Sunday is not easy unless God is going with you."

Hamo was taught how to pray while growing up.

"Mungu ni mwema thats the beauty of it. I grew up in a family where my father was in the army and every day we had to pray as a Catholic, There was an altar my dad was creating in our home, every night and if you slept before praying, he would wake you up. So that is where I started."

At one point, fame made him backslide a little bit.

"Prof Hamo kidogo akachanganya na town kidogo then he came back. Tonight is a rebirth because my relationship with God has been shaky kidogo kuna mahali nilifika nikamwambia leave me alone for a bit."

He told God he didn't need him anymore because work flowed in. He blamed that attitude on feeling meaningless in his life at the time.

The stand-up comic admitted that he cried when he prays, a testimony to his faith. He has a definite respect for spiritual things, and God holds a special place in his heart.

'I use to pray before I go on stage and I feel his presence but then I found myself without time to pray time ikapotea, I'm too busy that's when you are attacked uko too busy."
