Jalang’o recently completed the construction of an impressive residence in his rural hometown, Umalwe Village, where he spent his formative years.
Customary to Western Kenya and Nyanza regions traditions, the men are expected to construct a house to stay in when they visit their parents. The home is known as a ‘Simba’.
Jalas abided by this tradition but added a unique touch to the design of his home. His rural home now boasts a stunning ‘Simba’ that is a sight to behold.
As per tradition, the house features 4 spacious bedrooms and a grand living room equipped with recliner seats and a coffee table.
An inside tour of the house left netizens mesmerized by the lighting and interior design. Starting from the main entrance, visitors are led to a massive living room adorned with high-end sofa sets, a dining table and exquisite chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
The ‘Simba’ also features spacious bedrooms, including a posh master bedroom with a washroom. The kitchen is equally stunning, with elegant countertops, cabinets and python black tiles.
Within the house, Jalas revealed that he has a secret room referred to as his ‘prayer room’.
The former Kiss 100 presenter took to social media to share his success with his fans, leaving many in awe of his accomplishments.
Jalang’o also used his success to encourage other Kenyan celebrities to think about investing in the future.
He noted that while spending all their money on material possessions may be tempting, planning for the long term and building something that will last is important.
