…..important to get a woman who loves you and commit to that relationship. If one fails to do that, he will most likely waste his money and time on women, who are only after the fame..”

It is advisable that you identify one woman, stick to her and focus on art if you are an artist. So, Jacque Mbugua is that special woman in my life

Career

Although he pursued a degree in economics, comedy was his passion and going to Kenyatta University expanded his horizons. 

“I registered for a comedy theatre group that propelled me into the comedy world. Sometimes I failed in the auditions and was chased because of my body size. Others wanted me to impersonate people which up to now, I can’t,” said Desagu.

He started acting in theatre shows but realized he was making no progress, a situation that prompted him to start vlogging. At first, his parents were against the idea of him venturing in comedy, which is not a surprise as many people in this part of the world still consider comedy as a hobby.

“My late dad wanted me to be in a good white-collar job in a good office. When I started majoring in comedy, they were so upset and totally against it,” he said. This notion changed when Desagu started making it.

“ They realized I was doing well and I had started changing their lifestyles. This is when they appreciated what I was doing,” he told the Star

Henry Desagu’s comedy can be described as situational. He focuses on current situations which he portrays in a humorous way. There was a time when his name was synonymous to Mafisi Sacco. Some of his friends had gone through this situation and so the YouTuber decided to make comic videos out of this. He has gone on to make so many videos including eye witness accounts.

Does comedy pay his bills

Of course, comedy pays his bills as he has revealed in interviews with Betty Kyallo in K24 and Sharon Mundia on NTV. The key is to be patient and consistent. When he was starting out, he made no money and at first he’d get clients who were not even serious. Later, brands began to approach him and he also started making money through YouTube Ad Sense. The big break came when he landed a lucrative deal with Motorhub on Kiambu road. His hardwork had finally paid off. In fact, at first, the father of one thought it was a prank call but it ended up being very real.
