Edgar Obare has come under attack so much these past few days after he leaked information about two married radio personalities’ infidelity. Edgar Obare has seemed to be a man possessed when it comes to “dishing tea” about Jalang’o and Alex Mwakideu.
Actually it has seemed like a concerted campaign to be honest. he seems to have a hard-on for destroying these two men.
And that is the issue many people are bringing up with regard to Edgar Obare but first, the backstory. He dropped a gem on Jalang’o, exposing the fact that he is part of a WhatsApp group that was all about smashing women and living a good life.
Alex Mwakideu was next when Edgar Obare revealed his affair with a fat female who honestly I feel wasn’t worth him risking his marriage over but you know, some men can get anyone, others take whoever takes them.
Edgar Obare was the subject of much-heated debate after he revealed Alex Mwakideu’s affair and philandering ways as Kenyans demanded he cease exposing these men.
Suddenly, it was his fault for destroying these two friends and co-workers marriages. Suddenly, the micro blogger needed to hand in his man-card with Andrew Kibe even speaking on the matter. Twitter was set ablaze with all the know-nothing intelligentsia (who feel the sun rises from their posteriors), giving their hot take on masculinity and how Edgar Obare has betrayed men.
And now that the dust has settled, it is time for us to actually have an intelligent conversation about what’s what and hopefully cut through the
bullshit. And that at the end of the day boils down to projection.
Edgar Obare did nothing wrong. He is a tabloid micro-blogger using his own IG platform for some serious content creation and he is earning money from it. He meets his financial obligations and is smart about making sure he spaces his content to keep all of Kenya hooked.
Jalang’o and Alex Mwakideu did nothing out of the ordinary. I have to state that fact. The two men simply attempted to actualize their sexual strategy: Sleep with as many women as possible. We aren’t here to debate the ethics and morality of the matter and I do not care what your bishop says. Go and give him your three hundred and ten shillings tithe and shut the hell up.
The only sin here worth discussing is the fact that they were sloppy enough to get caught.
Edgar Obare isn’t some sort of moral standard nor is he claiming to be policing Kenya’s moral fabric. He is simply a micro-blogger doing business. Take your opinions of that to the toilet. Jalang’o got caught. He will answer to his marriage. I think he is high value enough for him to survive this scandal. The same goes for Alex Mwakideu. I mean, sure, there will be hell to pay because they have made their wives shame public but beyond that, they will be alright.
But Kenyans are deep in their feelings about this. And it is because they are projecting their fear of getting caught onto Edgar. How dare he snitch? How dare he expose the fault in our stars?!
Nah, ask instead why your stars got caught. Why are you so scared of getting caught? Don’t be sloppy. Keep your wits about your indiscretion. Keep your house in order. No one is coming to save you. You get yourself into your mess, you get yourself out. It wasn’t Edgar Obare who put these two men’s families in jeopardy. All he did was business. And the last time I checked, Kenya is a capitalist economy. Feelings peleka kwa choo.
And sure, Edgar Obare is going after Jalas and Mwakideu like a dog with a bone but they never should have given him ammunition. And at the end of the day, if he has the evidence to back up his allegations, he has them in pocket.
Be upset at the two men for letting you down if indeed you looked up to them.
