Despite his health scare, Kajim’s big day went on as planned. However, the comedian revealed he fell sick again after the wedding had taken place.

MC Kajim urged people to value their friendships and relationships, emphasizing how much he was surprised by the support he received from both people in the entertainment industry and politicians. “They supported me in a huge way.

Reflecting on his wedding experience, Kajim’s wife Silvana Wambui expressed her calmness during the celebration.

The couple, now happily married for two years, is blessed with a son named Alpha Jakes.

He says God has opened more doors for him after he got married.

Kajim extended words of wisdom to the youth, encouraging them to make wise investments and avoid excessive alcohol consumption.

We’ve had our challenges, but at the end of the day, love is what matters,” Kajim advised.
