Musician, Charles Kanyi, better known as Jaguar, says he will spend his Christmas with the teacher who took him back to school after his mother passed on.

The Huu Mwaka hit maker told Nairobi News in an exclusive interview that were it not for the teacher he would not be the person he is today.

“He is the one who took me back to school even after one of the school around my home refused to admit me because I could not communicate in English,” said Jaguar.

The teacher was then a head master at Magutu-ini Primary School in Kikuyu where Jaguar pursued his primary education.

The singer will visit the now retired teacher Evanson Ndungu Gathigo at his home in Kabete where he will spend the day with the entire Gathigo family.

‘HUU MWAKA’

“I want to spend the day with him and his family because if he had not given me a chance to join his school I would not have turned out to be somebody,” he added.

Jaguar released Huu Mwaka early this year terming the hit as a prophesy of what he wanted to achieve during the year.

Asked if he has plans to surprise Kenyans in 2016, the singer said there are bigger and better things coming.

“I will continue to fight for the youths through the platforms I have throughout the coming year. Expect more music in 2016,” said Jaguar.

The singer is currently a board member at the National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (Nacada) where he has been fighting graft as well as advocating for a drug free society.
