Other than being in the media industry, the media personality is also into African art and he has a number of art pieces from artists across Africa.

For instance, in 2020 when NCBA sought to auction Jeff’s four-bedroom villa in Kitisuru, it emerged that he used the house to specifically house his art collection.

The art collection is worth millions.

In 2014, Jeff also explained that he makes money from his love for art by linking up buyers with his favorite artists.

He stated that when people visit his house and are stunned by a piece of art on the walls, and they inquire how they can get such art, he connects them to the artist and he gets a 10% commission.

“Like a side hustle? No. Look, when we host guests for barbeque and they see my paintings and inquire, I hook them up with the artists and when they buy I get my 10 per cent boom,” Jeff said.

In December 2019, Jeff presided over the Shala Heart Gala auction which was solely on works of art where its main aim was to help raise money for charity.

During the event, the news anchor offered the painting bidding from KSh 600,000 before Peter Kenneth took it at KSh 800,000.

The Kenyan Ambassador to Tanzania Dan Kazungu also bought a painting from the gala worth KSh 600,000 in support of the Charity.

The paintings are from renowned Kenyan artist Peter Elungat.
