Ithagu Kibicho alias Henry Desagu is one of the funny and successful online comedians in the Kenyan comedy industry.
As they say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, it is a true indication from the perspective of life of Henry Desagu.
After finishing his secondary education, ‘The prince of Mwihoko’ reveals that he did all kinds of odd jobs that were available for him including hawking CDs.
He then dropped that to do painting for a pastor who was a missionary.
”Ile time yenye ukimaliza form four, unakaa sijui one and a half years ndio uende campus. Sasa apo ndio life ilinigonga. Apo nilifanya job zote. Nikaanza kuuza ma CD. Nilikuwa nauza zile za piracy… Apo ndio nika drop out nikafanya kazi ya painting. Kuna missionary alikuwa pastor akaniandika kwake kufanya painting. So hii ni time yote kabla nifike campus.”
In an interview on the Churchill show, Desagu says he came to Nairobi to further his education where he attended Kenyatta University and got a Bachelor’s degree in Economics after he completed his secondary education at Menengai High School.
