For the better part of this week, media personality Jalang’o and his friends have been trending across all social media platforms.
The group’s whatsapp chats were leaked on social media with many portraying them as sex pests.
Following the online conversation triggered by their chats, media personality Jalang’o has been forced to address the matter on behalf of his friends.
Jalang’o admitted that the chats belong to their whatsapp group which he says has been in existence for many years.
In a post shared on social media, Jalang’o now says the whole situation was blown out of proportion.
He further says they have lost advertisers and investors in the last two days as a result of the leaked conversations.
He insists that whoever leaked the conversation picked just one part, which they wanted but did not tell what led to that kind of conversation.
“The past two days have been very rough for me and my close friends because of the chats from our wassp group, yes we agree that it was our group and its a group that has been there for soo many years and through the group we have achieved a lot in developing ourselves in different fields more so investment which was the sole reason for the group. The boys are not just friends but people we grew up with from childhood, went to school together and achieved a lot together. On the chats you’ve seen , no one will tell you the genesis of the chats or the previous chats but they picked what they wanted you to see, we have been judged, abused and crucified and told that we formed a boys group just to have our pleasures. We will not defend ourselves but this was just another random boys chat in a wassp group, the difference between us and you is that your chats haven’t leaked out but I can assure you that in most wassp groups chats about men, women, money can never miss. People have blown this out of proportion and I can assure you we are totally broken. I have had people call me to encourage me and the boys and others calling to just condemn us, we have taken this as a lesson. There is a lot of malice and hate around it but we can’t go there now,” he wrote in part
Jalang’o who maintains that he has not been fired or sent on compulsory leave, says that the apartment in question is a place they have been using to shoot their online show and no one sleeps at the premises.
“What really happened? Or whats the truth? When Covid happen most of my friends closed office and I requested them to come help me build my YouTube channel, we took one of our appointments and turned into a fully-fledged studio and thats where we have been shooting, occasionally we go to where our guest is or hire a place to work depending on guest request, we are always done by 2 or 3pm so we sit back and just relax have a boys time and chat, few friends have joined us too. We went a created one of the biggest online platforms and we already had clients buying space for marketing and advertising and we were already on a roll gaining up to 10k subscribers per week! Rarely did anyone sleep at the apartment unless we had an overnight shoot or editing going on. The lies are too many that we ourselves are reading this things on the blogs and just wondering whom they are talking about.
- I have not been sent to any compulsory leave, my 2 weeks annual leave began last week and ill be back on radio in 2 weeks
- There are videos going around, i can assure you none of them is us.
- That we created the group to share women among us, that’s a lie. That day we were having a random boys chat and thats how the photos you see came up,” he added
He further calls out blogger Edgar Obare whom he accuses of having a personal vendetta against him.
“It is very evident that the blogger has alot against me. He started last year when he said we paid girls to come to our event, that story died when one of the girls dismissed him, he then again struck in December last year , when i questioned him he blocked me and claimed that I wanted to kill him, he has since blocked me and continues to publish my stories all the time, My friends send me screen shots from his chats, he refers to me as that married man he doesnt like….this year he tried to write another story from Alex birthday party but since he had nothing to write he let the story die. On my birthday he threatened to block anyone who posted me on their time line, and now even without asking our side he has gone ahead and had a field day, he is happy because he gets what he wants, Clout! Nothing else. What does it benefit you when you do all this ? The damage you’ve cause us can never be repaired Edgar and I assure you that were it that I was a bad person this would not have ended well, we will not sue or try to follow on anything and we will just let this pass but you’ve broken families, we have lost bossiness and top clients who have pulled out on us, it is ok and we understand them, no one would want to be around us now. We thank clients and friends who have stood by us by seeking to know the truth first. The truth will set us free someday for now all we have to do is try and put our heads up above this storm hoping it will soon pass. Moving forward, we have learnt alot from this, we accept our mistakes and ask for forgiveness to anyone we offended, we ask for your prayers and guidance. Meanwhile The show goes on! God bless you,” he added
