Before comedian DJ Shiti made a name for himself, he was just another struggling creative starving in the streets of Nairobi scrambling to make a living.
Shitti recently appeared on Betty Kyalo’s show where he revisited his story of depending on prostitutes while still pushing hard to get an acting spot.
He never gave up and the prostitutes in town saw that Shiti was destined for greatness and they started supporting him.
“I was honest with them, I told them I usually go for rehearsals and afterwards chill in town because it was safer than home. They then took me to one of their houses along River Road,” he told Betty.
Shitti said the prostitutes helped him until he got his footing and since then he has never forgotten them.
“Funny thing is we always motivated each other and they always told me I was going to make it,” he added.
