Comedian and radio presenter Felix Odiwuor popularly known as Jalang’o has refuted claims that he denied deceased Othuol Othuol financial support when he was alive.

Othuol died last Sunday after a long battle with tuberculosis and brain tumor. Immediately after his passing, a leaked WhatsApp conversation emerged showing that he had tried to seek help from an unidentified person. That unidentified person, who gossips now suggest was Jalang’o, wrote back after his death: “Man am so sorry never saw this. Rest bro am shocked.”

Othuol (real name Ben Maurice Onyango) was asking for assistance to raise Sh15,000 for MRI, a medical procedure that involves scanning the brain and the spinal cord.

“You sit somewhere and wonder what you ever did to people,” said Jalang’o in response to the allegations. “We have had more than three fund raisers that has been sorting his bills…We have been there to the last minute…But if you decide to associate me with the screen shot who am I to change your thoughts? Not me…Go ahead and associate me.”

The KISSFM morning presenter revealed that he offered Othuol unparalleled support in his comedy career, including giving him a TV show (Sirkal Ya Bibi on K24TV), stand up comedy (Kenya Kona), the Safari battery advert and numerous Luo plays staged at theatres in Nairobi.
