Comedian and TV host Dr. King’ori has open up on his relationship with his parents.
Speaking during an interview on Churchill show, Dr Kingori explained that they would on several occasions sleep hungry when his mother came home from work empty-handed.
He said that he remembered how he endured nights of hunger.
On finishing his secondary school education, Dr. King’ori started following his dream of pursuing a career in acting.
However, the financial pressure back home kept weighing him down.
“Immediately after secondary school, I innocently asked my mother about college and she responded, ‘where is the money?” Dr. King’ori said.
“At the time, I was cast and started acting in set books. My mother was earning Ksh 5,000 then and I remember she was over the moon because it had been increased to Ksh 5,600,” he added.
Just as he had started acing, his parents hooked him up with a road construction job. He was to earn approximately Kshs. 17,000 each month.
Dr. King’ori worked at the construction job for a week but later on decided it was not what he wanted to do. For this reason, he left the job and decided to pursue a career in performing arts.
“They wanted me to do go dig trenches on roads where I would make between Ksh 12,000 and Ksh17,000. With that kind of money at the time, I would have been a tycoon,” Dr. King’ori narrated.
“I went there for a week, remember, I had started acting in set books. However, I could not fit in. I quit that job and I was told ‘you can’t stay here, go fix your life out there,’” he added
Angered by his decision, King’ori’s father kicked him out of the house at night around 10 p.m.
The comedian ran to a nearby police station and explain what happened.
Currently, the comedian runs a talk show on NTV dubbed ‘The Wicked Edition’.
