Celebrated comedian Felix Oduor but popularly known as Jalang’o has left social media peeps dumbfounded after calling out a woman who has allegedly been extorting money from him over child support.
Speaking on Hot 96 during Jeff and Jalas morning show which he co-hosts, the comedian stated that the alleged baby mama alleges he sired her son and that she was using the claims to blackmail him into sending money.
Jalas now says he met the woman when he was starting out in the industry over a decade ago but she dumped him after she visited him at his home in Mwiki when she realised that he was not as rich as she had thought.
“When she came visiting me in Mwiki she realised that it isn’t all glitter and glam. She visited me twice in my place and after visiting me the second time she was like this is not the life she expected so she broke it off and got into another relationship,” Jalang’o revealed.
He went on to add that the woman moved on with another man just before he (Jalang’o) was hired by Kiss 100 where things took off for the better.
That on realising Jalang’o had hit it big, the woman called him and told him he was a father. He demanded a DNA test but the woman threatened to spill the beans with the media and paint him as a deadbeat.
“One day she called me and told me there is something she wanted to tell me, at that time I was at Kiss, everybody knew Jalang’o. She wanted to come back because things were picking up for me. She later told me she had been pregnant, had a baby and the child was mine,” he added.
He played along to save face and image that he had built for so many years. The comedian however, now more confident, decided to spill the beans himself.
“I was always trying to protect my brand. Nobody could know about this.” He said said about the story.
“I have never seen that child up to today and the kid is about 9 to 10 years. It’s a hard situation being in the limelight, some people don’t understand what we go through.” He added.
Jalang’o now says he won’t cough a single cent more until a DNA is carried out.
“My main reason to come out is for her to know I’ve opened up about this story. No more money until the DNA test is done,” he concluded.
