Kenyans haven’t yet begun to embrace docu-series but when they do, Prezzo should be the first to get one because let’s face it, his life is litty!
Prezzo has had so many ups and downs that have been both public and shocking and they would make for a great docu-series on either NTV or KTN depending on who decided to go this route.
The rapper who recently released a song with P-Unit following his extended hiatus from music recently had an interview in which he revealed everything he has faced in life and how he handled his situations.
Some of the revelations include but aren’t limited to Prezzo’s time as a member of the proscribed Mungiki criminal organization. And while every Kenyan understand why this is an interesting part of Prezzo’s life, we should also look to how Wikipedia described the Mungiki:
Mungiki is a banned ethnic organisation in Kenya. The name (mũngĩkĩ, [mo.ᵑɡe.ke]) means “a united people” or “multitude” in the Kikuyu language. The religion, which apparently originated in the late 1980s, is secretive and bears some similarity to mystery religions. Specifics of their origin and doctrines are unclear. What is clear is that they favour a return to indigenous African traditions.
They reject Westernisation and all things that they believe to be trappings of colonialism, including Christianity. The ideology of the group is characterised by revolutionary rhetoric, Kikuyu traditions, and a disdain for Kenyan modernisation, which is seen as immoral corruption. Mungiki is often referred to as Kenya’s Cosa Nostra, Yakuza, or Kenyan Mafia due to its organization. They have been newsworthy for associations with ethnic violence and anti-government resistance.
There are also the rumours of heavy drug usage culminating in Prezzo collapsing while out shopping with his mother in the CBD. So this could make another facet of the docu-series.
Think about it, Kenyans have shown a hunger for such content given the popularity of The Michael Jordan/ Chicago Bulls called Last Dance and the Muhammad Ali docu-series What’s My Name which can arguably be said to show a potential audience for a Prezzo docu-series.
You could also throw in his very public romantic dalliances like that with Sheila Mwanyigha that resulted in the end of her engagement to a mzungu man. And there is also the time yet another mzungu man took Prezzo to court for sleeping with his wife. We could also have a piece about Prezzo’s relationship with Tanzanian
sex tape star Amber Lulu. All this would make for fascinating TV don’t you think?
So what remains now is to see who will jump at this rather tantalizing idea.
