During these tough times of quarantine and self isolation due to Coronavirus, some entertainers are willing to do just about anything to get ahead.
Popular Kenyan promoter Kitawi Mwakitele also known as Telehmani has come out to apologise to Kenyans after he hoodwinked his friend DJ Stylez with a promise of availing South African comedian Trevor Noah for a live Instagram show.
In videos seen by The Sauce, Tele expressed his sincere apologies for not delivering his end of the bargain but reiterated that the occurrence was a normal one in his line of work.
Kenyans had eagerly awaited for the Instagram live session with veteran Kenyan deejay Stylez featuring the award winning media personality.
It was all systems go for the much anticipated live show, DJ Stylez had his set ready, questions typed up and had taken the time to read Trevor Noah’s bestseller ‘Born A Crime’.
However, the Daily Show host did not join on the live session as it was an elaborate scam by popular Tele who went as far as photoshopping a video call between him and the Mzansi superstar. Calls to Tele by Stylez when Noah was a no show went unanswered.
“Why the hell we not gonna have Trevor Noah tonight because he promised that? We had communication about it and he created the poster and did everything. I set up everything, got Trevor’s book and even got questions ready for the show,” DJ Stylez ranted in a live video.
“But all of a sudden, I’m trying to call Tele and he is not picking up. If you can get hold of Telehmani tell him to come online and tell us why we don’t have him,” he said.
Adding, “I’m pretty upset, completely upset. I don’t do things like these. I spent my whole time planning for this. Tele let me down. I apologise to you guys and would never do anything like that. I’m true to the core. Sometimes in life sh*t happens.”
Kenyan comedian MC Jessy saved the night after he joined DJ Stylez’ Instagram live pretending to be Trevor, leaving many in stitches.
