Hit Maker Majirani, also known as Tom Watimah makes our #MCM this week. He is known for his massive hits ‘Hivi Ndio Kunaendanga’ and ‘Tukumbukeko’. In the ‘Tukumbukeko’ video he shouts out his former hood Kamkunji, Eldoret where he used to live before the fame and fortune.
Majirani is a jack of many trades, he is currently a student at Moi University pursuing a degree in IT. He is also a cash crop farmer where he has a 10 acre plantation that he tends to and is finally a full time entertainer. We sought for Majirani in a bid to find out how he does everything that he does. Give it up for Majirani…
