1 : Chipukizeey- Comedian
After a long school term, it was that time again. Exams were knocking. “I didn’t have the cash so my parents sent me Sh13,000, Sh10,000 for the exam fee and Sh3,000 pocket money. Anyways, I decided my crush was more important. It was time to impress her.
I took her out with the Sh3,000. After having one too many, she told me she had used her Sh5,000 fee balance that her parents sent her. Feeling philanthropic, I gave her all Sh10,000. I missed my exams and learnt never to try and impress a chic when drunk,” he says.

There’s nothing good as spending your own money. Jalango landed a big contract. He decided to call his boys for a gentlemen’s evening. “Eeh…I was drunk. Only way to explain it. I needed to use the loo but since there was someone already using it, I decided waiting wasn’t worth all the trouble.
I went to the balcony and didn’t take time to check whether there was someone or not. I ended up peeing on the neighbour’s clothes and some dude who was in the car. They filed a report and I was given a 24-hour eviction notice–lesson learned. When drinking, know your limits or don’t drink,” quips the comedian.
3: Kenzo- Musician
Kenzo had a gig in Machakos at Club Wizard where he was to perform. “I was the highlight of the night. After performing, I decide to enjoy himself with a couple of friends and that did not go so well. I got drunk, ended up on the decks attempting to deejay. That didn’t work. Went for the microphone now to MC and that was disastrous as well. I made a fool of myself in front of everyone. The crowd that was so ecstatic earlier booed me off the stage. I am never drinking while on the job,” regrets Kenzo.
4 DNG – MC
He decides that since the weekend is here he is going to drink with his pals but after a bit too many, he says he does not need a driver or help since he is a sports racer. “I told my boyz my car knows its way home. I learnt it the hard way. I crashed two of my cars. Pombe sio supu,” laments DNG.
5 Gerald Langiri- Actor
He used to drink so much and do a lot of crazy things. “One time when heading home after having too many, I spanked a lady on the streets. Another time, I blacked out at a fast food joint in town. This is what lead me to stop drinking. I realized I was on the verge of alcoholism,” says the recently engaged actor.
6 Delvin Sauti Sol-Singer
It was a night out with the boys. I wanted to try new drinks that people always mention. It worked and by that I mean, it blew up in my face, literally. I blacked out, almost missed my flight and that did not go so well with my manager. Another time, I drank so much I got hospitalized for a day. Everyone reacts differently from drinking. Now I know my limit,” shares Delvin.
7 Dr Ofweneke- Comedian
“This particular day, I took my girlfriend for a night out clubbing. After getting drunk, I asked her ‘my girlfriend’, who she was. The scene after that was not good. From that day, I carry a picture of my girlfriend just to confirm,” smiles the comedian.

9 Bien Sauti Sol – Singer
“Was clubbing, drinking and decided to drive. I almost crashed. From that day, I use a cab or I don’t drink. I also volunteers to drive my friends home when they’re drunk,” adds Bien.
