Comedian Njugush and his wife Celestine Ndinda revealed that going for their first Groove Awards event was a huge challange because they were broke.
The two comedians revealed that they had to take a loan to buy cloths for their first appearance given that they didn’t have any money.
“That is true. I had also bought shoes on loan!We were dressed up yet everyone else had come in their regular work attire,” said Dinda.
“By then, I was already being recognised as a celeb. My plan was to dress the part and I asked my wife to ensure she nailed it on the red carpet. Can you believe she took a loan to buy a dress?! I wore a fitting suit.
That evening, we hired a cab (for the first time) with the only money that we had. I mean, we couldn’t arrive for such an event on foot! When we alighted, guys were just staring at us! Kumbe we had overdressed! It was just the nominations, not a red carpet affair.”
Regarding one of the most expensive things that his wife bought that shocked him, Njugush said that his wife bought a wig that cost Ksh 15,000.
“Her hair! I used to see ladies braid their hair for Sh200. I was shocked when she told me her wig had cost Sh15,000. I almost fainted! Anyway, it is okay since she wanted to look nice,” said Njugush.
