Media Personality Joey Muthengi denies “dating sponsor” rumor


By Annette Amondi

Media personality Joey Muthengi has denied the rumors doing rounds that she is dating a sponsor.

Joey said the story was fueled by her sentiments in a certain entertainment segment which she acted in.

“Can we kill that other story now about my non-existent ‘old’ men? It was a segment I did for an entertainment TV. Never have I ever nor am I planning on ever dating a known or unknown Kenyan politician or older man for profit,” she wrote

She went on to reveal that she struggled to get a job as potential male employers offered to meet her at clubs rather than at offices.

“I have worked in this industry since 2009. I’ve been without a place to call my own, been rejected from job interviews because I wasn’t dressed the correct way, borrowed money from my bro to go print and distribute my CV, yet everyone stayed silent because they didn’t know me.Been told I wasn’t the right fit numerous times, been in a matatu with nothing but my last 50 bob (while I was on my first TV show), hanging around Capital FM hoping they might need someone to voice their next advert… I’ve had male potential employers try to meet me at pubs rather than offices. Honey, I’ve seen it all,” she posted.
