The thespian recently revealed on his YouTube channel, OJ FLiX, that he was brought up by a single mother who went to great lengths to give him everything he needed in life.

He also revealed how he sank into depression after he squandered all the money he made from Citizen tv’s Tahidi High show on alcohol.

“I am a perfect example of the Swahili proverb of Asiyefunzwa na mamaye hufunzwa na dunia,” he said.

Raised by a strict single mother, Mugo said he got the best as a child, went to a boarding school in class four but became independent after form four.

“I can’t say I was from the ghetto, in all honesty, I was brought up well and I became arrogant, stupid and a know-it-all and I’m not blaming this on anyone, this is all me,” he revealed.

He currently works for the Embu county government in the Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports, specifically in the Talent Academy.
