Kiss FM presenter Jalang’o was part of a team of creatives that met up with Deputy President William Ruto over the weekend.
According to sources, this was to help entertainers in the country stabilize financially during this pandemic.
The agenda was pushed by rapper Khaligraph Jones who called upon the DP to open up the country as artistes are struggling to pay bills after the second lockdown.
The DP responded to an Instagram post by the ‘Kasheshe’ hitmaker saying that he would call them for a meeting. To his word, he did.
The meeting was also attended by celebrities like Willy Paul, DJ Joe Mfalme, Nonini, Pierra Makena among others
Speaking on The Morning Kiss, Jalang’o revealed;
“I WAS PART OF THE PEOPLE WHO WENT TO SEE THE DEPUTY PRESIDENT, WILLIAM RUTO BUT ACTUALLY I WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE PART OF THE TEAM. LAST MINUTE HE CALLED ME AND SAID JALAS I NEED YOU THERE. SO I WENT BECAUSE IT HAD ALREADY BEEN ORGANIZED AND DENNIS ITUMBI IS THE ONE WHO CALLED ALL THESE ARTISTES.”
“FROM THE CONVERSATION WE HAD WITH HIM, THERE IS A LOT THAT GOES ON BEHIND THE SCENES IN LOCKING THE COUNTY.”
Khaligraph also took to social media to reveal that the team had spoken to the DP on how to help creatives during this pandemic.
TODAY WE HAD A CHANCE TO SIT DOWN WITH THE DEPUTY PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA AND DISCUSS WAYS ON HOW WE CAN BE ABLE TO IMPROVE THE STATE OF THE COUNTRY AND HELP THE CREATIVE INDUSTRY IN THESE HARD TIMES. WHILE SOME WILL SEE THIS PHOTO AND ASSUME WE WENT FOR HANDOUTS, REAL AGENDAS WERE TACKLED AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS LAID DOWN. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE AUDIENCE.
