King Kalala: I left my parents’ home at 22 with Sh. 3,000 only

Prudence Chepkirui, better known as King Kalala is a content creator and radio presenter hosting the morning shows on NRG Radio.

Speaking in a recent interview with Dr. Ofweneke on TV47, the media personality disclosed that she moved out of her parent’s house at 22.

King Kalala also shared circumstances that forced her to leave her father’s house.

“I didn’t leave, this is what happened, I spoke with my father about pursuing art instead of continuing with school.”

“He gave me Sh. 3,000 and instructed me to return home with a degree. At this point I was 22 years, I left but a victim of circumstances,” she said.

King Kalala traveled to Nairobi where he settled and later engaged in a business where she would sell chicken meat outside entertainment joints.

Her confidence and hoarse voice attract a mass of fans to her social media pages. She is linked with issues dealing with sexuality, relationships and broke men.

Kalala said that her confidence was instilled in her by her parents from a young age

She started by making videos where she would give her opinion about different movies and celebrities, but she later changed to giving views about real-life situations.

In an interview with TikToker Azziad Nasenya, the media personality said she was not dating because she would cheat on her partner.

“I’m not dating and the reason is very simple; Me I’ll cheat on you. I am not lying,” she revealed.

King Kalala noted that she is not ready for a relationship until she gets over her cheating ways.

Dealing with Body Shamers

Kalala also opened up on her body shaming experience which was a constant routine.

She says that despite putting on a brave face after being body shamed, she cries in the night since there is nothing she can do to end the trolling on social media.

“Honestly inaboo. 24 years hazijakuja,” Kalala said in her usual humorous way.

“Kulia ni lazima. Lakini hiyo ni ya usiku tu, and then we strike at dawn,” she said.

She also does not hold back at those who body shame her. She says disrespect is a two-way lane.

“What I like about being body shamed is that I also get to do it back. It gives me a chance to body shame people back. It’s not about me a celebrity that I have to speak with respect. If that’s how we are taking, then let’s talk,” she nonchalantly said.
