Joey Muthengi the host of the popular Tv show 10 over 10 has come out saying that never has she ever dated any politician or older man for profit.
The musician/radio host has been trolled after an article was published claiming that she prefers older man as they are established and would pamper her right.
In a lengthy social media post Joey clears the air and explains where the story began that she is dating older men for profit. She starts by saying that the top she is wearing cost her Ksh 50 bob.She proceeds by asking if she can kill the other story of her dating old men.
“For the record: I bought this top for 50 bob hapo Ngara. Also, can we kill that other story now about my non-existent ‘old’ men? It was a segment I did for an entertainment TV segment. Never have I ever nor am I planning on ever dating a known or unknown Kenyan Politician or older man for profit.” Said Joey Muthengi.
She continues to explain how she has worked hard in her life since 2009 ad being rejected at job interviews because she was not properly dressed. She even recalls days when she could board a matatu with only Ksh 50 bob in her pocket.
“I have worked my ass off in this industry since 2009. I’ve been without a place to call my own, been rejected from job interviews cause I wasn’t dressed the correct way, borrowed money from my bro to go print and distribute my CV yet everyone stayed silent b/c they didn’t know me, been told I wasn’t the right fit numerous times, been in a Ma3 with nothing but my last 50 Bob,”
Joey also shares moments in her life when she could hang at Capital FM just to see if they would need someone for there ads.
At some point in her life she met employers who would prefer to meet her pubs rather than in the office.
“Hanging around Capital FM hoping they might need someone to voice their next ad…?being rejected for jobs time and time again. I’ve had male potential employers try to meet me at pubs rather than offices. Honey, I’ve seen it all. Despite the fact that I’d studied & excelled at Journalism (B.A) and interned at the Voice of America in Washington D.C, It all felt like it had all meant nothing at some point.
But God’s Grace kept me pushing through. You can do your research and quote me on that. So I kept hustling…and many years later here I am still standing. I’d like to believe that every job I’ve ever gotten. I’ve gotten it on merit. Clearly sarcasm doesn’t translate well on Social Media. So I apologize for my delivery but thank you for those who got it. Love you to the bloggers…Call me (Seriously, nobody has called me for a comment in years. Yet the articles keep coming.).
You all know my number. I’m happy to give a comment. The tarnishing of my name is not fair at all. I’m always happy to clear the air. Just ask. Jesus still loves you though amidst all the chaos. So let me end this here. Don’t judge people . I’m blessed. And I’m forever grateful. I’m not dating a Governor. It was a joke that started on my show. I work as hard now as I did the day when I had nothing. That is all. Bless up”
