Tahidi High Actor Omosh in Tears as He Narrates His Ordeals

Omosh Tahidi High

Famous Tahidi High actor Kamau Kinuthia, alias Omosh, sheds tears as he explains the wretched state of his life.

Many know Omosh for his hilarious jiffies and entertaining vignettes in the captivating local programme Tahidi High, which aired on Citizen TV for a decade or thereabout.

Few of us never knew the struggles he has been undergoing since the show stopped production in 2016. Just to get a snip of his burdens, we’ll tell you that Omosh has been delivering motivational talks to high school students for a living.

In 2020, however, schools were closed and he lost the market for his services. Of course, the pandemic has shown no mercy to everyone, but Omosh seems to have been hurt so deep.

Speaking to the media, the talented comedian said, “I used to go to schools to provide inspiration and motivation to students, but when schools were closed, I was rendered hopeless.” Since then, he has been out without a job, relying on friends for material support.

He further explains that he can’t afford food and rent. In fact, Omosh says that he faces eviction due to rent arrears amounting to over KES 100,000. He has also been depending on friends to feed his kids.

“One thing I can tell you here…friends, neighbors and friends… have sustained me, I have nothing to do” Omosh confessed as he buffed tears of sorrow.

Describing his normal day, every day since early 2020, Omosh says that he gets up in the morning, puts on his best attire, and walks purposelessly on the road crying.

Omosh is now ready to take up any opportunity he can get to survive. “I just want a job, even if I will be getting Ksh200 a day.” He postulates that he is a good driver, and has a valid driving license. Kinuthia is also open to any offer, including serving customers as a waiter in a hotel.

The comedian admits that he was addicted to alcohol for several years before going for rehabilitation for three months. He has not been so responsible at a personal level, and he knows it. However, just as he was making a turnaround in his life things went awry economically.

Radio presenter Jalango has promised to raise over KES 1 million for the former Tahidi High actor, but it remains to be seen whether money will change his life. Perhaps something enduring such as a job can make his life more meaningful.
