Radio host who doubles up as a comedian Felix Odiwour alias Jalang’o has explained why he keeps his three children off social media.
For many celebrities in the country, photos of their children dot their social media timelines.
But, Jalang’o says he knows how dangerous and ruthless social media can be for young kids especially those whose parents are celebrities.
In an interview with Ayo TV, the Kiss 100 Presenter said that he doesn’t want to subject his kids to unwanted trolls and scrutiny just because he is a public figure.
Unknown to many, he says his first child was with an ex-girlfriend and the other two are with his Amina.
“Niko na Mtoto mmoja na aliyekuwa girlfriend wangu wa Kwanza…kisha na mke wangu tuko na watoto wawili.
“Lakini huwa sipendi sana kuongea juu ya Familia alafu watoto wenye hakuna hata mtu ameshawahi kuwaona mtandaoni.
“Sitaki mtu anze kuangalia ooh huyu ni mtoto wa Jalang’o lazima atritiwe different. Hiyo hapana. Akiamua siku moja …unajua kuna watu wengi wananipenda na kuna watu wengi wanakuchukia. So sometimes unapost mtoto pale watu wanaanza kum-troll. Unajua the internet is not a safe place,” he explained.
He says he has regrets on posting his daughter a few years ago and don’t want to make the same mistake again.
“I actually regret posting my daughter on social media. One, I don’t know if that is what she would have liked, two, for her privacy’s sake and three I don’t want people, her teachers to treat her differently cause she is Jalang’o’s daughter,” he said.
