Top comic and Emcee Jalang’o will now charge more for his administrations after as of late facilitating an occasion directed by previous US president Barrack Obama at Kogelo, Siaya County.
Jalang’o, who is additionally a radio moderator, uncovered that facilitating Obama’s capacity was the most troublesome occasion he has ever taken care of yet the greatest in his vocation as an emcee.
The comedian, who was the Master of Ceremony when Mr Obama presided over the launch of his half-sister Auma Obama’s Sauti Kuu Foundation, said he wasn’t sure if he was up to the task.
But after the event went down successfully, Jalang’o feels his brand has now gotten better hence he would consider increasing his rate cards for future events he will be invited to host.
“Hosting ex-president Barrack Obama is no child’s play. I have now updated my CV and I’m now charging higher rates to emcee at an event” Jalang’o said.
Jalang’o, who is eyeing a political seat come 2022, went on to add that he had to go through a thorough grilling process from Obama’s security detail before he was cleared.
“I had to go through meetings and interviews, where I would meet the Secret Service. It was a long process. I could not use my phone a few days to the event due to security reasons,” he added.
Before Obama’s event, Jalang’o said his biggest event was the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. However, it went unnoticed because they were no selfies then that he would have used to take credit.
