Former Hot 96 presenter Jalang’o is one person who started from rags to riches and he endured some of the toughest jobs before making money from entertaining people.
In a past interview Heavy J Baba said that he used to work at a cemetery before an opportunity came knocking and he tried his luck. Little did he know that he was on the right career path just by doing comedy.

In addition to comedy and acting, he is nowadays one of the most sort out MC’s in Kenya and he has done corporate and other big events including the last event involving former USA president Barack Obama.
He was proud of his achievements and he even shared photos of himself and the former president thanking God for the journey so far.
On Tuesday he however revealed that he was once a sells person in one hotel promoting chickens in order for him to get a chicken at the end of the day.
His sales journey began when he first landed in Nairobi and was looking for any job to do.
During his job hunts he used to pass by Chicken inn, Mcfry and all other fast food restaurants and his wish was to one day come and eat the grilled chicken.
His wish to have the chicken sent him to ask for a job at one of the fast foods but the catch was that he should wear like a chicken and ring a bell so at to attract customers from 11am to 5pm.
At the end of the day, he was taken to the back office, paid Ksh 500, half a chicken and chips.
Today Jalang’o and Alex treated ten of their fans in the same hotel where he was a bell ringer.

“A very short story! Now so many years ago when I had just landed in Nairobi looking for a job or just any work to do , I used to passby the McFry, Kenchic, and all the fast foods and my wish was to one day just eat the grilled chicken that was summersaulting on the window!
The wish to have this chicken sent me to ask for work in one of the fast foods and the job I got was to call people in as they passed by! But the catch was simple I had to dress up like a chicken and stand by the door and ring a bell to attract people in!
So there I was dressed in the chicken costume armed with a bell calling people in from 11 in the morning to 5pm shouting Chicken Fresh…Karibu…Kuku safi….heheheh at 5pm I was done and was taken at the back office paid 500 bob for the job plus half chicken and chips!
To cut the long story short Alex_mwakideu and I today treated 10 of our fans with chips…chicken..and soda in the same hotel I was a bell ringer!” Said Jalang’o
