Top comedian and Emcee Jalang’o will now be charging more for his services after recently hosting an event presided by former US president Barrack Obama at Kogelo, Siaya County.

Jalang’o, who is also a radio presenter, revealed that hosting Obama’s function was the most difficult event he has ever handled yet the biggest in his career as an emcee.

The comedian, who was the Master of Ceremony when Mr Obama presided over the launch of his half-sister Auma Obama’s Sauti Kuu Foundation, said he wasn’t sure if he was up to the task.

But after the event went down successfully, Jalang’o feels his brand has now gotten better hence he would consider increasing his rate cards for future events he will be invited to host.

LONG PROCESS

“Hosting ex-president Barrack Obama is no child’s play. I have now updated my CV and I’m now charging higher rates to emcee at an event” Jalang’o said.

Jalang’o, who is eyeing a political seat come 2022, went on to add that he had to go through a thorough grilling process from Obama’s security detail before he was cleared.

“I had to go through meetings and interviews, where I would meet the Secret Service. It was a long process. I could not use my phone a few days to the event due to security reasons,” he added.

Before Obama’s event, Jalang’o said his biggest event was the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. However, it went unnoticed because they were no selfies then that he would have used to take credit.
