Media personality and comedian Phelix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o has vowed to walk the unusual path of a liquor-free life. Jalang’o promised to quit booze as a gift to his former colleague Alex Mwakideu with whom they have shared an admirable bromance since their days at Radio Maisha.
“Kutoka leo nimewacha pombe… hutawahi niona na pombe..hio ndio zawadi naweza kupa wewe kama rafiki ( I will never drink again, you will never see me taking liquor. This is the gift I give you as a loyal friend)”Jalas said during Wednesday’s #BongaNaJalas live show.
The comedian has been a known lover of the bottle with most of his Instagram updates dominated by stories of him enjoying expensive brands. He has frequently been seen spoiling his friends and workers with alcohol.
However, the top emcee who was hosting the Head of Radio at Milele Fm, revealed that he would henceforth dispose of all the liquor in his stock vowing to follow in the footstep of his friend.
The Milele Asubuhi host quit alcohol eight months ago to fulfill his mother’s wishes.
“Imagine niliwacha pombe kabisa (I quit drinking completely)… I did it for mom, the last day I had a drink was the 25th of October 2019,” Alex said in a previous interview.
