There are supposedly two personalities in MC Jessy. The entertainer everyone knows and love, and Jasper Muthomi.
Jasper Muthomi is a laid-back go-getter who doesn’t speak a lot and likes preserving issues easy however elegant. “Like I’d moderately drive a brand new Vitz than an outdated Mercedes,” he says.

“I don’t suppose folks actually know the best way to separate MC Jessy and Jasper Muthomi. Folks suppose the Jessy they see on TV is similar one even within the streets. However that’s a job. I’ve to put on that garment of comedy, then after that, I sit again and I now turn out to be me.”
The extra we speak, the extra I realise that I’m both one of many individuals who can’t distinguish between the 2, or that Jessy and Jasper Muthomi have morphed into one individual over time.
I’m by no means fairly certain which one I’m speaking to.
Not like Jasper, Jessy talks quite a bit. He admits that it’s such a weak spot that it is likely one of the causes now we have waited for over an hour earlier than he lastly arrived at Java, Lavington Mall.
After being in 4 conferences the place he did many of the speaking, the hours have bled into one another and he tells me we now solely have 20 minutes to do the interview. Betrayed by his talkativeness, it really finally ends up being shut to 2 hours lengthy. “I actually battle with detaching from folks. I can speak to anyone. If I am going to a lodge you’ll be able to’t simply serve me as a waiter. No, no, no.  It’s a must to inform me the way you’re doing and the way every little thing is coming alongside. My son even tells me, ‘Daddy let’s go. You’re speaking an excessive amount of.’ And but when he begins speaking he doesn’t cease both!” he says, laughing.
He has two youngsters and he says his son is “mini me”.  Of all his possessions, his most prized are the little issues his son brings him, which he cherishes as keepsakes. “Medals, the playing cards they make at school for particular days saying issues like, ‘I really like you daddy’, when he paints his fingers and prints it on paper – I preserve them. Once I take a look at them I get the vitality to maintain on going. I do know there may be somebody wanting as much as me so I can not afford to surrender. I’m somebody’s hero. When he grows up I’ll present him all of the issues he introduced me from kindergarten. I’ve a great deal of photos of us,” he says with a sentimental look in his eyes.
Shut relationship with son
That shut relationship along with his son is in contrast to his personal along with his father. He doesn’t keep in mind a lot about his father, who would have been 77 at the moment if he was alive. He died at 52 when MC Jessy was younger, and the little MC Jessy is aware of of him, he discovered from the bishop of the Meru Catholic Diocese, Salesius Mugambi, who was greatest associates along with his father after they have been younger males.
He pulls out an image of his father on his cellphone, which he has joined in a single body along with his personal, aspect by aspect. There’s an unmistakable resemblance, possibly helped by the truth that he wore horn-rimmed glasses for the {photograph}, similar to his father. They’ve the very same hairline, however his father had a a lot rounder face. “I used to be given this image by his spouse. We’re associates along with her,” he says.

I’m stumped, so he explains that he was the youthful spouse’s son. The primary spouse had six youngsters, whereas his mom had two. He’s the final born of all of them.
Muthomi actually interprets to ‘learner’, ‘scholar’ or ‘reader’, and he’s residing as much as his title, as an avid scholar of historical past, politics and governance.
 “I’m effectively versed in management and African historical past. I do know the historical past of Kenya earlier than independence. I’ve learn most journals about our president, the deputy president, Kiraitu Murungi our governor (who he says is his superb pal) – like do you know Kiraitu is the one politician who has by no means misplaced an election on this nation? I analysis about world leaders – largely African leaders. I do know the histories of Congo, Uganda, South Africa, Libya, Tunisia and others just like the again of my hand,” he says.
He’s learning for a Masters diploma in Political Science and could be defending his thesis if Covid-19 had not occurred. He reads about two books a month.
However he virtually didn’t get right here. He was out of college for an entire 12 months after major faculty, having been orphaned at 12, when his mom died the day earlier than he sat his KCSE exams. In a while, his aunt determined to pay for his secondary faculty training.

Kenya won’t have had MC Jessy as we all know him if she hadn’t as a result of St Cyprian Secondary Faculty in Meru was the place his abilities as an entertainer have been honed. He was common for his riveting solo verse and as a hype man for the cheering squad.
He breaks into the Kenyan excessive colleges’ favorite cheerleading chant, “Steam steam, panda!” as excitedly as if he’s again on the sector, exhibiting how they used to do it.
After rousing the imaginary crowd, he says, “I used to play basketball and I used to be the loudest as a result of I might create nasty songs for the cheering squad. I sang them to taunt the alternative workforce’s gamers whereas enjoying, rating, and sing at them as a part of the cheering squad after scoring.”
Comedy on the radio was actually the ball he had his eye on. “I knew I might make folks chortle. As a youngster, I might take heed to KBC, the likes of Jeff Mwangemi, John Karani, Tim Nderitu. As they spoke I might act like they have been doing a hyperlink with me and reply comically.
“They might say, ‘Welcome to Yours for the Asking, I’m Jeff Mwangemi!’” Jessy launches into the acquainted basic Kenyan radio voice, “ ‘Aaand I’m Jessy!’ earlier than breaking out of character to make clear, “That point I wasn’t referred to as MC Jessy. And naturally, the presenter would ship greetings to Sukuma bin Ongaro, and so on, after which I’d chip in…” (resumes the enthusiastic radio voice), “…and naturally I wish to say hello to Carol, my darling from Chuka Excessive Faculty…’ –  in fact, as a youngster I might say hello to girlfriends,” he says with a chuckle.
So he knew that he needed to be on the radio, however coming to Nairobi straight from Meru, the learner discovered himself enrolled within the faculty of exhausting knocks, taking sensible classes from life itself.
He hilariously tells a tragic story of ready exterior Household FM’s (now Radio 316) gates each morning for a month to try to get then Household FM presenter, Mike Gitonga, now a information anchor with KTN, to note him.
“Sooner or later I sat down and puzzled how I might breakthrough on this life. The place would I even go?  That’s once I determined that the identical approach I used to be speaking to myself and praying, the one one who cared was God. I made a decision that was it, sufficient. So I laid my life proper there and prayed to God to assist me. I advised him it was he and I. If I died it might be simply He and I,” he remembers.
Pastor who noticed my potential
In 2006, the senior pastor at Winners’ Chapel, Nairobi, Pastor David Adeoye, would hear Jessy speaking to his associates after they have been all accomplished cleansing and at some point referred to as him up. “He requested me what I did. Once I stated I didn’t have a job he stated (adopts Nigerian accent), ‘Come, you speak an excessive amount of!’ He opened his laptop computer and made me watch the likes of Chris Rock and Steve Harvey and stated, ‘That is what you’re speculated to be doing.’”

The subsequent Sunday, the pastor gave him 5 minutes to crack jokes on the altar, which flopped at first because the pastor was the one one within the viewers laughing. He virtually gave up, even discouraged by some folks within the viewers, however the pastor requested him to do it once more.
He ultimately received a job (after one other lengthy wait on the gate) as a reporter doing Monetary Markets Dwell on KTN beneath Larry Madowo, joined Daystar College, labored with Scorching 96, earlier than resigning to deal with his personal firm, BrandFace Media Ltd, and dealing with Churchill Present.
Covid-19 has compelled folks to pivot, and he now hosts Jessy Junction, a comedy present which includes a monologue by Jessy, in addition to interviews.
Being an inspiration is essential to him. “I wish to be remembered as somebody who impacted folks. I need folks to say, ‘I met MC Jessy and my life circled.’ ‘We sat for 2 minutes and he advised me one thing that modified my life.’’I listened to MC Jessy’s story and I modified my way of life.’ ‘I learn his story and my life modified.’”
