As earlier reported on WoK, the viner started his education at Sacred Heart Primary school in Baba Dogo before joining Ringa Boys High School in Homa Bay County.
He later pursued the Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Sciences student at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).
Crazy Kennar started acting while he was in Class Three and at Class Seven he scooped the best actor award in Nairobi county during the Kenya National Music and Drama Festivals in 2011.
It was in high school that he picked comedy courtesy of his teacher. He told Buzz writer Thomas Rajula of his moment of epiphany;
“…I picked up comedy while doing narratives in high school. My teacher then, Mr Andal, discovered my talent when he had me come up with a seven minute script after we had no script four days to the competitions…”, said the online comedian.
Together with Stanley Omondi, who was his schoolmate and now part of Tales of Crazy Kennar, they did the narrative together and mastered it.
He said it’s at this point that he realized he had a special gift of creating content. Crazy Kennar, who also calls himself the content cartel, started to do what he does best after joining JKUAT.
