“I want to explore various avenues, including farming. It’s about seizing opportunities that others have laid the groundwork for. This venture is a trial, and I’m hopeful it will be successful. It’s the way forward. We should capitalise on our successes to invest wisely as artists,” Njugush said.

The comedian thanked his close friends, including Butita, Abel Mutua, Judy Mutua, and Philip Karanja, for supporting his dreams.
