Comedian Njugush has revisited his tough journey to stardom after he left Real Househelps of Kawangware show.
Speaking in an interview, Njugush said they had to endure a lot as he pushed to make a name in the industry.
“I had just left the Real Househelps of Kawangware show. I had no idea what to do. We got broke. We had been given a fridge during our wedding and we were using as a cupboard because we had no food to put in it. We were jobless, and we came up with this idea to record some funny videos and post them on our social media platforms.” he said.
He added that there was a bit of hope when someone offered to pay them for their funny videos but everything later came crashing down after the deal was canceled before even picking off.
“Someone offered to pay us for a series of videos. I could not believe that I could actually get paid to do that. So I sold my 32-inch TV for sh15,000, hired a camera, borrowed a laptop, learned editing online and shot the videos, only for the person to say that the client was no longer interested. I was crushed.
“We realised that if one person was willing to pay, even if the money was not paid, we could make some money out of it from other people.”
“While our days of struggling are a distant memory, I have this niggling fear of failure. That is what drives me. The thought of someone in future coming and asking, ‘what happened? You used to be so successful!”
